Legal 500 EMEA rankings: weer mooie resultaten

De Legal 500 Europa, Midden-Oosten en Afrika heeft zojuist haar rankings voor 2020 bekendgemaakt. Net als voorgaande jaren wordt BarentsKrans meerdere keren genoemd in deze toonaangevende gids voor de internationale advocatuur. Hier zijn we natuurlijk trots op!

Totstandkoming Legal 500 rankings

Legal 500 brengt elk jaar de prestaties van advocatenkantoren in meer dan 100 jurisdicties wereldwijd in kaart. De ranglijsten worden gebaseerd op feedback van meer dan 300.000 cliënten, inzendingen van advocatenkantoren en gesprekken met juridisch adviseurs. Het team van Legal 500 bundelt deze resultaten en presenteert jaarlijks de rankings.

What’s new?

We hebben een top-tier positie gekregen voor twee rechtsgebieden:

Dispute resolution: Commercial litigation

“The dispute resolution team at BarentsKrans, based in the Hague, is perhaps most well known for its strong supreme court litigation practice, receiving referrals from several leading Dutch and international law firms to take cases up to that level. The firm is also home to strong teams dealing with commercial and corporate litigation, financial litigation, and contract disputes, along with a growing presence in mass litigation, with the firm often instructed by large-scale litigation funders. The practice is led by Martijn van Maanen, Rieme-Jan Tjittes, and William Schonewille, who focus on the commercial and corporate, Supreme Court, and financial litigation aspects of the practice respectively.”

Employment

“BarentsKrans is home to one of the premier employment teams in the Netherlands, and is particularly recommended for complex litigation, union negotiations, and restructuring. Max Keulaerds heads the team, and is well regarded for his litigation experience, particularly for disputes arising out of employee dismissals. Elsewhere in the team, Laurens De Graaf is highly recommended for matters involving trade unions, while senior associate Frank Dekker is another key name to note, having advised and represented several large clients, including in the Supreme Court.”

‘BarentsKrans is really your go-to when it comes to employment law. Its a rare combination of an employment law team where all lawyers are above the average smart. They are very knowledgeable and each have their own specialism. That makes it a very all-round team.’
