Damiën Berkhout speaks about collective actions

By Damiën Berkhout

On 24 January 2023, Damiën Berkhout provided a lecture on Dutch collective actions under the WAMCA at Utrecht University. He did so together with Ms Branda Katan, a partner at Stibbe. The lecture focussed on key steps in Dutch class actions, with Mr Berkhout providing insights from the plaintiffs perspective, and Ms Katan from a defence perspective.

Lindenbaum’s attorneys have been involved in some of the largest WAMCA procedures up to date, such as Take Back Your Privacy’s claims against TikTok on behalf of all Dutch children, and the claim by the Consumer Competition Claims Foundation against Apple. Mr. Berkhout has been lead counsel in WAMCA’s and other class actions, successfully representing both plaintiffs and defendants.
