''Flourishing competition boutique'' rises again in ranking of top Dutch law firms

The leading international lawyers guide Chambers & Partners has ranked Maverick Advocaten again higher on the list of best law firms in the Netherlands in the field of competition law, healthcare and telecom (TMT). Chambers recommend our firm and writes:

Flourishing competition boutique offering wide-ranging expertise in merger control, cartel investigations, dawn raids and abuse of dominance. Focuses on regulated markets such as energy, telecommunications and life sciences. Particularly active on follow-on damage claims. New client wins include Scotch & Soda and Universitair Medisch Centrum Groningen, strengthening the firm's presence in the retail and healthcare sectors. Clients appreciate the team's "creative, clever and problem-solving" approach. The group is "well organised, specialised and focused," according to another impressed source.”

All partners of Maverick Advocaten are recognized as "Leaders in their Field":

Diederik Schrijvershof is praised as a "reliable and fast" lawyer who adopts a "pragmatic, helicopter view and is well informed to push things forward." He handles merger filings, regulatory litigation and abuse of dominance matters.

Martijn Van de Hel has a strong profile in domestic competition matters and is particularly experienced in cartel issues. He receives high praise from interviewees, with one describing him as "very sharp and on the ball," while another notes that "he is very specialised, always available and persevering."

Bas Braeken is noted for his solid profile in competition litigation in regulated sectors such as media and telecoms. Clients highlight that "he is very knowledgeable and gives practical and hands-on advice," while another source lauds his ability to "think outside the box."

Earlier this year, we already received high rankings in the publication of Global Competition Review.

We regard these rankings again as an important sign of confidence of clients and peers in our services.
