Advocaat | Counsel
Paul specialises in corporate, commercial and private international law. His focus lies on complex cross-border disputes, including competition law follow-on litigation, international mass claims, and proceedings concerning shareholder liability. His challenges lie in determining an international strategy in matters where several possible courts may have jurisdiction and foreign parallel proceedings are sometimes already pending. In this context, he advises on motions contesting jurisdiction, cross-border discovery, attachment, and the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments. He also focuses on the question of which law applies to bundles of claims or contracts, particularly where strategic possibilities exist on the boundaries of procedural law and substantive law, and on the boundaries of company law and civil law.
