ABOUT THIS PRACTICE AREA | SERVICE
We are expert in private detective misconduct defence. We are intimately familiar with the standards in the private detective services industry in the European Union, and have assisted in drafting internal legislation related to the private detective industry. We have regularly write articles for Dutch and International private detective organizations. Issues concerning private detective misconduct defence include: a) Negligent Security, b) Assault and Battery, c) Excessive Use of Force, d) Breach of Contract, e) False Imprisonment, f) Civil Rights Violations and g) Defamation.
We pride ourself on being proactive. We employ preventive measures with our private detective clients to help them avoid litigation altogether. We review client operations, with a focus on policies, procedures and best practices. Our many years of experience tell us that preventing a lawsuit is far less expensive than litigating one. However, when our clients face actions, claims of negligence and/or lawsuits, we have the trial experience and are ready and able to provide defence. Our first goal is usually to eliminate the case before it goes to trial. But if dismissing the case before trial doesn’t happen, we are ready to litigate the case before the courts. We have many years of experience representing and winning cases for our clients from the private detective services industry.
