In my practice, I advise clients and litigate on their behalf in a wide range of commercial disputes. I have a special interest in and knowledge of the automotive, logistics and transport sectors. Many of my cases have an international character as most companies I advise are engaged in cross-border trade. As a result, I also gained considerable experience with (international) arbitration proceedings, including according to the arbitration rules of the Netherlands Association for Forwarding and Logistics (Federatie Nederlandse Expediteurs, Fenex), the Netherlands Arbitration Institution (Nederlandse Arbitrage Instituut, NAI) and the of International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) / International Court of Arbitration (ICA). I have been practising law as an advocate since 2006.

Three questions for Aziz

  • I have extensive experience in representing companies in contractual disputes and drafting a wide range of commercial contracts, including for the logistics sector and manufacturers or suppliers in the automotive sector.

  • People who like to work with me do not want long-winded advice detailing countless options from which they have to make their own selection. My clients rather want me to concisely outline the best possible solution for them on half a page of paper to help them discuss the issues with me in practical terms to gain a better understanding of the relevant legal issues.

  • One of the issues that plays an important role in my advisory and litigation practice is the conclusion of contracts. In one particular case, for example, I successfully represented a German and Belgian client in court against a claim from the other party alleging that my clients were obliged to purchase bunker diesel for a value of more than €1,700,000. My clients won the case because we were able to prove that the other party had incorrectly represented the contract negotiations. After showing the court with great attention to the details how the negotiations had actually proceeded, the court ruled that no contract had been concluded and that my clients were therefore under no obligation to purchase the fuel.
