The Dutch judicial system enjoys a good reputation, as does dispute resolution by arbitration for shipping and transport. There is significant internationally-oriented expertise on hand, procedural law is practical and informal, and there are various options in arbitration. Resolving disputes here is therefore relatively inexpensive, fast and predictable. This aspect of ‘ease of doing business’ is attractive to companies wanting to set up business here and wanting their legal interests to be taken care of close to home.
