Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


This article analyses the Dutch group settlement model from a company law and capital market law perspective. The author considers the WCAM procedure primarily as a forum and an instrument for companies in Europe and shareholders claiming damage caused by the company’s insufficient information to the market. The article focuses on important questions for the Dutch settlement model, i.e. questions of jurisdiction, notification, and legal effect of the settlement. The author develops some important perspectives for European procedural and company law.
