About Arnout Schennink
Arnout Schennink specializes in preventing and resolving business disputes, with a particular focus on shareholder disputes, directors’ and officers’ liability, and professional liability.
Arnout has vast experience in litigation in the regular courts, the enterprise court and in arbitration. In business conflicts, litigation is not always the best solution, which is why Arnout is not only a lawyer, but also a mediator. Mediation can achieve a result in disputes involving parties who will have to deal with each other in the future or other interests that can be damaged by litigation. It often offers a quick solution that takes into account the interests of all the parties involved.
Arnout lectures on directors’ and officers’ liability at, among others, the Executive MBA Public & Private program at Nyenrode Business Universiteit and Zorgvisie Academy. He also analyzes and comments on recent case law in the monthly publication Rechtspraak Ondernemingsrecht.
Arnout has been with Lexence since 2010. He has practiced as a lawyer since 2004. Prior to that, he studied law at Utrecht University and the University of Toulouse. Arnout also completed a specialist course in business and liability at Grotius Academie and post-graduate training as a legal mediator at the ADR Instituut.
