Trade Law

The Netherlands has several large logistic hubs, such as the sea ports of Amsterdam and Rotterdam and Schiphol Airport. Through these hubs millions of tons of goods pass annually, on the basis of thousands of trading relationships.

Rohe advises on the different types of commercial contracts, such as distribution, agency and franchising, purchase and sales agreements, terms and conditions, product liability and building contracts. Additionally Rohe also handles related insurance law, payment transaction and collection disputes.

Trade law often includes an international component. International trade agreements may lead to legal proceedings if no result is provided by a conflict resolving approach.
