CONTRACTING POST-BREXIT

Contracting post brexit

From a legal point of view, quite a few things change after Brexit. But what will Brexit particularly mean for existing contracts and the parties to these contracts from a Dutch legal perspective? At the moment it is still unclear what exactly will change with respect to contracts, but it is to be expected that uniformity, predictability and (legal) certainty will be lost in part.

GDPR UPDATE – the processing of personal data of employees

Just when the dust regarding the entry into force of the GDPR seemed to have settled, the Dutch Data Protection Authority (DPA) made public on 16 July 2019 that it imposed a fine of €460,000.- and an incremental penalty payment on the hospital HagaZiekenhuis. Reason for us to briefly consider the enforcement of the GDPR since its entry into force. In addition to this, we will focus on the cutting edge between the GDPR and employment law, by providing a brief overview of the responsibilities of the employer under the GDPR. Within that context, we will briefly touch on the difficulties that employers seem to experience with regard to the implementation of the GDPR and discuss some of the most recent updates in this respect.

An extensive due diligence investigation: necessary or unnecessary?

The mergers & acquisitions market is booming again. The value of the transactions in 2018 has risen considerably compared to the year 2017. Inherent in this development is the fact that generally sellers are in a better position during the acquisition process. The more choices a seller has, the more he can demand from interested parties. Potential buyers are therefore inclined to act faster and to proceed sooner. In the event that a potential buyer feels that he is under pressure, such a potential buyer may decide to carry out a due diligence limited in scope or no due diligence investigation on the target company at all. What are the consequences thereof?
