Cassation seminar 2018: Supreme Court and Corporate Law

The shareholder proposes, the board disposes.

Mergers and acquisitions regularly lead to disputes between management and shareholders. Over the past few decades, the Enterprise Chamber and the Supreme Court have shaped the relationship between management and shareholders with provisional decisions in the Elliott/AkzoNobel and Boskalis/Fugro cases. These cases have given rise to a public debate about the rules of the game for takeover attempts.

The decisions raise fundamental questions: 
  • Have the Enterprise Chamber and the Supreme Court created a balanced framework?
  • Is this framework based on a clear principle or is it based on the facts of these cases?
  • What does this case law say about the mission statements of the Enterprise Chamber and the Supreme Court? 

These and other issues will be discussed during the Cassation Seminar 2018: Supreme Court and Corporate Law.

After the seminar, a written certificate of participation will be provided, so that participation in the seminar can be entered as training points (PO) at the Dutch Bar Association.
