Since the mid-1990s, BarentsKrans has been a pioneer in the field of banks, insurers and other financial service providers’ liability. Setting themselves apart with a combination of keen legal, financial and economic knowledge, our lawyers are nationally and internationally recognised and are regularly recommended by other law firms and financial specialists.
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
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).
