Amsterdam

Netherlands

Our Dutch offices are located in Utrecht and Amsterdam. At CMS Netherlands, 160 lawyers, notaries and tax advisers form a full service practice. Our clients are medium and large enterprises and multinationals.

We advise them on legal and tax issues and have extensive knowledge of all big industries. We gladly facilitate our clients in following their ambitions. We always make sure that we are up-to-date on market changes and legislative changes and will provide you with clear, concrete advices.

CMS has a long tradition as a legal services provider in the Dutch market. Our Dutch office was founded in 1900. In 1999 we brought our international aspirations into practice when we entered into an alliance with four other renowned European firms: CMS was born. Currently CMS has 75 offices in 43 countries and is one of the leading law firms in the world. We know everything about the Dutch business climate and are actively involved in several networks for social responsibility.

Laws and regulations are becoming more and more complex. Companies have limited certainties on future legal developments and legal issues are complicated and comprehensive. Advising on these legal issues is CMS’ core business. But CMS aims to facilitate and work together with its clients in a broader sense. An example is that we maintain close relations with scientists and research institutions. Jointly we study complex issues that our clients have to deal with. Next to that, we stimulate our clients to anticipate long term developments, in order to be future proof.

We share our knowledge and experience without any obligations on our website. If you are interested in the services that we offer, please visit our Online Services Platform.

CMS European M&A Study 2019
The CMS Cor­por­ate/M&A group is pleased to launch the el­ev­enth edi­tion of our European M&A Study. 560px340pxht­tps://me­dia.cmsleg­al.com/me­dia/em­bed?unique_key=bfd4ddebbe2c42442e25ca7daaa0c5d9&width=720&height=405&auto­play=false&auto­light­soff=false&loop=false&cleanal­wayseznode://556355This year’s Study re­flects data from 458 deals in 2018 on which CMS ad­vised. This is the largest num­ber of deals ever covered by the Study, now in its 11th year, which is re­flect­ive of CMS’s gain in mar­ket share and cor­res­pond­ing rise up the M&A league tables. In ana­lys­ing the 2018 mar­ket, we re­port on cur­rent mar­ket stand­ards on risk al­loc­a­tion in M&A deals, com­par­ing 2018 against 2017 and the pre­vi­ous eight-year av­er­age for 2010 – 2017.The spe­cial fea­tures of the Study are as fol­lows:CMS Trend In­dex – to il­lus­trate a cur­rent fact or trend for the par­tic­u­lar fea­ture re­por­ted on, com­par­ing the po­s­i­tion in 2018 with that of 2017 and / or the eight-year peri­od 2010 – 2017.CMS European / US risk al­loc­a­tion com­par­is­on – a head­line ana­lys­is of the dif­fer­ing risk al­loc­a­tion on stand­ard is­sues in European and US M&A.CMS European re­gion­al dif­fer­ences – we high­light cer­tain is­sues which are par­tic­u­lar to one or more of the six European re­gions covered.CMS deal size ana­lys­is – we ana­lysed our data against three dif­fer­ent deal val­ues: deals up to EUR 25m; EUR 25m to 100m and deals ex­ceed­ing EUR 100m.For the first time, the Study sought to eval­u­ate the main deal driver for each trans­ac­tion re­viewed. This is in ad­di­tion to ana­lys­is of the back­ground of the seller (mostly stra­tegic and fin­ance in­vestors but also a sub­stan­tial num­ber of in­di­vidu­als) and the buy­er (al­most ex­clus­ively stra­tegic and fin­ance in­vestors).The key find­ings of the Study in­clude:De­creased use of pur­chase price ad­just­ments (PPA) – around 44 per­cent of deals in­cluded a PPA com­pared with 48 per­cent in 2017. This rep­res­ents a not­able move­ment against the over­all trend in re­cent yearsSig­ni­fic­ant in­crease in the ap­plic­a­tion of locked box struc­tures – of the deals that did not in­volve a PPA, 59 per­cent used a locked box in 2018 which rep­res­ents a sig­ni­fic­ant in­crease over the 49 per­cent in 2017Earn-outs con­tin­ue to grow in pop­ular­ity – there was a two-per­cent­age point year on year in­crease in the use of earn-outs in 2018. A quarter of small and mid-cap deals now in­volve earn-outsA re­cord year for War­ranty & In­dem­nity (W&I) in­sur­ance –sellers are in­creas­ingly of­f­load­ing their war­ranty ex­pos­ure by pre-pack­aging a buy­er’s W&I policy. Nearly a third (30 per­cent) of deals val­ued over EUR 100m now in­volve this form of in­sur­anceWe trust that the CMS European M&A Study will as­sist you in your every­day M&A activ­it­ies.560px340pxht­tps://form.jot­form.com/90832787017968al­ways

CMS Soil and Ground­wa­ter Con­tam­in­a­tion Guide
From the 1970s on­wards, soil and ground­wa­ter con­tam­in­a­tion has be­come an in­creas­ingly im­port­ant reg­u­lat­ory is­sue. However, there are still no uni­form reg­u­la­tions. Nu­mer­ous sets of rules have been de­veloped which, among oth­er things, aim to pro­tect soil and ground­wa­ter and have led to stand­ard­isa­tion through­out Europe and the world. These sets of rules in­clude, for ex­ample, laws on the trans­port of dan­ger­ous goods, laws gov­ern­ing chem­ic­als and laws re­lat­ing to emis­sion con­trol. However, ques­tions such as how to deal with con­tam­in­a­tion and who is re­spons­ible for its elim­in­a­tion can be answered only for the re­spect­ive leg­al sys­tem.The pur­pose of this guide is to as­sist with an ini­tial risk as­sess­ment and to provide prac­tic­al ad­vice re­gard­ing the par­tic­u­lar­it­ies of each of the 24 leg­al sys­tems covered. However, ow­ing to the large num­ber of scen­ari­os, this guide does not con­sti­tute leg­al ad­vice. On the fol­low­ing pages, CMS en­vir­on­ment­al law ex­perts present an over­view by an­swer­ing a set of el­ev­en ques­tions ac­cord­ing to their re­spect­ive jur­is­dic­tion, in­clud­ing Aus­tria, Bel­gi­um, Bul­garia, Chile, China, Colom­bia, the Czech Re­pub­lic, France, Ger­many, Hun­gary, Italy, Lux­em­bourg, Monaco, the Neth­er­lands, Peru, Po­land, Por­tugal, Ro­mania, Slov­akia, Spain, Switzer­land, Tur­key, Ukraine and the United King­dom.
