Forcing contract compliance and easy asset tracing through attachment on Dutch assets

  • Netherlands
  • Commercial litigation
  • Litigation and dispute management


As in all periods of financial uncertainty, especially now many companies are confronted with debtors who do not pay their debts.

  • Did you know that, in the Netherlands, it is relatively easy to realize a (pre-judgment) attachment of assets?
  • Did you know that, under Dutch law, it is irrelevant whether the proceedings are being conducted abroad, as long as there are (also) assets located in the Netherlands?

The pre-judgment attachment can be beneficial in many ways, either by securing your claim or by forcing your counterparty into fulfillment of their obligations.

This publication explains how this can be achieved.
