Our financial litigators possess a wealth of knowledge and experience in:
- Investment losses in advisory relationships
- Asset management
- The misselling of financial products
- Interim changes to and/or the termination of loans, like interest-rate derivatives
- The liability of regulators (for example, BarentsKrans’ role in the proceedings concerning the Dutch Central Bank’s liability in DSB’s insolvency)
- Prospectus liability
The team is very professional, pro-active attitude, has a personal approach, is very dedicated and always on time to give an additional explanation.
Investors, private investors, investment firms, financial service providers, investment institutions, fund managers and issuers contact BarentsKrans if they need a dedicated trusted advisor. Following a legal analysis of the position, an economic assessment is made weighing up the opportunities, risks and costs which are then translated into a strategy that defines how the issue is handled: in negotiations and/or in proceedings before judicial bodies or complaints boards like the Dutch Institute for Financial Disputes (Kifid).
