Scott+Scott Expands International Footprint with Amsterdam Office
First Global Firm Devoted Solely to Claimant-Side Litigation
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ScottScottAMS?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ScottScottAMSlt;/agt;–Scott+Scott, Attorneys at Law LLP has announced the opening of
Scott+Scott Europe BV in Amsterdam, continuing its global expansion.
Scott+Scott, with offices in New York, Connecticut, California, London
and now Amsterdam, is an international law firm with a well-earned
reputation for advising multinational corporations and institutional
investors on recovery programs and opportunities — and for recouping
billions of dollars for clients in complex cases involving competition
law violations and other misconduct.
“Scott+Scott has been a trusted partner to Michelin for many years and
we know the quality, experience and integrity that they bring to private
enforcement cases,” said Jerome Cloarec, Head of Global Antitrust for
Michelin Group. “We are pleased to see the firm expanding its European
presence, especially to the Netherlands, which is one of the top
European jurisdictions for claimants. This move will greatly benefit any
multinational client seeking losses from anticompetitive conduct.”
The firm is known for a wide range of news making cases, including:
- Representing individual corporations in Europe, including Hermès,
GrandVision and Vodafone, in lawsuits against Visa and Mastercard
alleging that the fees they impose for accepting payment cards breach
European competition law.
- Representing more than 40 US towns and cities seeking to hold drug
manufacturers, distributors and retail pharmacies accountable for the
role their deceptive and unethical marketing practices played in
creating the devastating opioid crisis that is crippling
municipalities across the country.
- Obtaining $2.3 billion in settlements with 15 banks as lead counsel
for a nationwide class in an antitrust action alleging a conspiracy to
manipulate the foreign exchange market.
Opening an office in Amsterdam is a logical step for the growing firm.
The Netherlands has a robust litigation regime and is a premier
jurisdiction for private enforcement cases. Its courts are increasingly
friendly to parties seeking damages from price fixing and other forms of
wrongdoing. The Netherlands also offers a mechanism for settling cases
on a global basis. The opening of the Scott+Scott office in Amsterdam
will make it simpler and faster to recover losses all over the world. US
investors can get relief for losses outside the US without having to
engage third party Dutch law firms.
“We are delighted that Scott+Scott, with whom we have a longstanding
relationship, is now in the position to monitor and advise on our stock
holdings beyond the US,” said Marc Edwards, General Counsel for the
Oklahoma Firefighters Pension and Retirement System. “As our investments
in Europe have grown, we need a more global view. We feel confident
knowing that Scott+Scott is monitoring our account in its entirety and
providing us with global advice rather than having to refer sections of
“Scott+Scott is the first trans-Atlantic firm in the Netherlands devoted
exclusively to claimant litigation,” said Scott+Scott Managing Partner
David Scott. “Opening the office in the Netherlands serves two goals; it
allows us to service our multinational clients with a pan-European
approach, and it provides our US-based institutional clients a
comprehensive and all-inclusive approach for their European investments.
Our presence in the Netherlands will provide our clients, whether
headquartered in the US or Europe, a one-stop shop for global
recoupment, regardless of where the damages occurred.”
Scott+Scott Europe BV is scheduled to open June 1, 2019 with offices at
Herengracht 280, 1016 BX Amsterdam, Netherlands.
