HCR Law Events


Our international hub in the Netherlands is served by Oliver Weiss and Robin Koolhoven. Due to our close relationships with legal advisers based here and elsewhere in Europe, we are able to ensure that our clients are served in a timely, cost-effective and expert manner.


Solid Connections

The Netherlands and the UK have a strong trading and investment relationship, the Netherlands being the UK’s fourth largest trading partner and second biggest investor into the UK.

How can we help you?

Our Clients

Our work to date has included advising Dutch companies on the acquisition of UK businesses and in disputes concerning company assets in the UK as well as assisting UK businesses wishing to establish operations in The Netherlands. Here are some recent examples:

  • We advised a UK distributor in the automotive sector on the termination of its business relationship with its Dutch supplier. We were able to give our client a seamless service, comprising both English and Dutch expertise thanks to our excellent relationships with local law experts
  • In conjunction with local law specialists, we helped our client, a UK-based world-leading supplier of bakery ingredients, to set up logistics and warehousing facilities for its Dutch subsidiary. We were able to get them tailored legal advice quickly and efficiently on a project which was critical to their business
  • We acted for a Dutch business in High Court proceedings in London relating to the disruption of fishing rights in South Wales mussel beds
  • We advised a major Dutch salvage business on the effects of a potential breach of contract claim worth an estimated £400m relating to the decommissioning of oil platforms
  • Using our network of Dutch lawyers and business advisers we are superbly placed to support our UK and international clients to get the right advice quickly.

If you are a Netherlands-based organisation operating in the UK or doing business with partners based there, we can connect you to a wealth of English law expertise across our full-service business services team. We can also connect you with our other international hubs in key global commercial centres: China, India, US and Nordics
