Seizure of evidence

This solution is intended to guide your company when a seizure of evidence is carried out. Originally only the holders of Intellectual Property-rights had been given the specific right to have bailiffs visit the sites of a company without prior notice to seize documents, files and other material as a security measure. In September 2013 the Dutch Supreme Court ruled that these seizures of evidence can be applied in non-IP matters as well. This solution provides the key principles of application of a seizure so as to enable your company to make informed choices.
