As a seasoned litigator Edith was invited in February 2019 by the New York International Arbitration Centre to give a presentation and inform New York attorneys about the Netherlands Commercial Court (NCC). The NCC is a unique attractive European alternative to cross-border litigation and arbitration with highly specialised judges in which international matters can be argued entirely in English, which has the great advantage that foreign councils can actively work together with the Dutch lawyers on these matters. It is much cheaper than arbitration, swift and highly reliable and effective. Edith very much enjoys working with lawyers around the world on these cases in front of the NCC.
