Who's Who Legal Litigation: Lawyers

Yvette Borrius is partner of the law firm Höcker in Amsterdam, where she heads the litigation team. Admitted to the Dutch bar in 1993, her practice focuses on (international) complex multiparty liability proceedings, corporate governance and litigation and commercial litigation. Yvette is regularly appointed as examiner by the Dutch Enterprise Chamber and frequently involved in high-profile (forensic) governance investigations.

Significant litigation cases include: Ageas NV (v Dutch State and ABNAMRO), Tulip Computers and Koop Tjuchem (v bankruptcy trustees), KPNQwest (v Citibank and Cargill), Vestia (involving the Dutch State and international banks), Meavita (mismanagement) and Fortis (v VEB and foreign claimants). 

Yvette frequently publishes in her field of expertise. She is an annotator of case law and a lecturer at universities and conferences in the Netherlands and abroad. Yvette is lead author of the Chambers Litigation Guide (2016).

She is engaged as officer with the IBA litigation committee and the foreign practitioners committee of the Dutch Bar, and is a board member of the Dutch Associaton for Corporate Litigation and the Association for Enterprise Chamber’s appointed executives and examiners. Yvette is member of the Dutch Association for Procedural Law. She speaks English, French and German.

In May 2016 Yvette was shortlisted at Euromoney Legal Media Group’s European Women in Business Law Awards for the Best in Litigation Award covering all of Europe. Yvette has been ranked as leading individual in Chambers Europe (commercial litigation).

Höcker’s lawyers combine academic depth and a wealth of experience in different arenas. The firm has a solid and strong tradition in dispute resolution involving insolvency and fraud matters, corporate and commercial transactions, finance and investment/securities.

WWL says: Yvette Borrius is "the best lawyer I have come across in cases of bankruptcy. The quality of her advice is very high and she is highly responsive.”‚Äč
