The Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC) legislation will be taken up by the Senate Justice and Security Committee in September 2018. The NCC will be an impartial and independent English-language chamber of the ordinary Amsterdam courts, specialised in complex, international business cases. NCC proceedings will be in English, using Dutch procedure. As a result, the legal community in this jurisdiction needs an English translation of Dutch civil procedure rules. This book presents the first published English translation of selected parts of the Dutch Code of Civil Procedure.
Practitioners may find invaluable guidance in this book as they advise clients on procedural matters and draft statements and briefs in civil cases. These pages present not only the new general Code rules governing electronic communications in civil practice in this jurisdiction, but also the entire NCC Rules. This book may serve as a practical guide for work in civil cases throughout the Dutch court system.
