Allen & Overy


In an increasingly volatile world and international business environment, it is becoming harder for parties to predict where disputes may arise. It is in this context that international arbitration has continued its march forward as parties’ first choice for resolving complex, cross-border disputes. But just as the number of international arbitrations has dramatically increased over the last decade, so too has the complexity and value of those disputes, requiring increasingly sophisticated and specialist legal advice.

Allen & Overy’s market-leading Dutch arbitration practice is ideally placed to assist clients with disputes whenever and wherever they arise. We are at the cutting edge of arbitration law, with expertise under all the key institutional rules as well as investment treaty arbitration. Our Amsterdam team includes both Dutch-qualified and English-qualified lawyers and our strong international network  gives us the necessary expertise to handle complex international arbitrations. Members of the team have extensive experience representing clients in arbitrations as well as in court proceedings regarding the enforcement or setting aside of arbitral awards, sit as arbitrators and are actively involved in national and international arbitration institutes. This allows us to build excellent relationships with the most respected arbitrators and arbitration practitioners worldwide and enables us to offer our clients the highest standard of service.

Ploum Law Firm


Many companies no longer just want straightforward legal advice from a law firm and notary's office. They want more. They want to hear the best solution in clear language. The entrepreneur’s solution. The solution that works and gives you confidence in the future. They are looking for a sparring partner with a legal background: someone who knows the law through and through, but who also dares to give strategic advice and can think along as an entrepreneur. In addition, clients are increasingly asking for a project-based approach or seeking support in the rollout of a solution. In doing so, they expect their adviser to be efficient and transparent and to move at the same pace, because the ability to tackle challenges quickly is crucial for companies.
We can do that. With a practical approach, on an energetic no-nonsense way, without frills. That, along with the high quality of our legal knowledge makes us distinctive.
Legal knowledge is the basis and business instinct is the forte. This is Ploum. This is what makes us a partner-in-business.
