Court Rules on Third-Party Attachment on Foreign Claims
Netherlands | 10 April 2007

The Hague Court of First Instance has recently issued a judgment on third-party attachment on foreign claims. The decision shows that a 1954 Supreme Court judgment on this issue is still relevant. It enables a party with a claim against a party based in a foreign country in which the possibilities to recover the claim are limited to levy an attachment on the monies owed by a Dutch party to the foreign party.
