Legal Committee

The Legal Committee reviews the developments in the main legal fields relevant for US-related business activities in the Netherlands, such as company law, labor low, legal compliance and competition law. The Committee also looks into new areas of legislation and makes policy suggestions – e.g. in the areas of data privacy and digitalization.
