The international lawyer guide Chambers & Partners has once again ranked Maverick Advocaten high in their list of best Dutch law firms in the field of competition law and healthcare. The firm is appreciated for its in-depth knowledge and experience:
“Flourishing competition boutique offering wide-ranging expertise in merger control, cartel investigations, dawn raids, distribution matters and abuse of dominance. Recognised for its extensive experience representing clients in the healthcare sector, as well as focusing on other regulated markets, such as energy and telecommunications.”
Chambers is full of praise about the team:
- The team's business sense is emphasised by market commentators, one praising the firm for "having a pragmatic approach and being pleasant to work with."
- Clients value the firm for its attentiveness, one telling of how "their response was always quick and to the point."
- Another underlines the department's tact, one claiming that "it has a no-nonsense attitude, yet is also empathetic and a good counterpart."
- Yet another client calls the department "extremely knowledgeable and well organised."
Also the partners are highly recommended by Chambers:
Martijn van de Hel is active on cartel damages cases and investigations before the ACM. He also advises on state aid issues before the European Commission. Clients laud his scope as a practitioner, one citing his "high degree of strategic understanding."
Diederik Schrijvershof advises on cartel investigations and merger clearances before the ACM. He is particularly well regarded for his work in the healthcare sector, in addition to representing clients from industries including public transport, social care and agriculture. He draws praise from clients for his user-friendly manner, one dubbing him "responsive, helpful and service-oriented," adding: "He also provides constructive ideas and suggestions.”
Earlier this year Global Competition Review included Maverick Advocaten in the top 5 of best law firms in the Netherlands. Also, Who’s Who Legal recommended our team yet again as “top healthcare lawyers in the world”.
