About Jeanette Luijten

Jeanette Luijten is a lawyer at AKD who specialises in civil engineering law, with a strong focus on, and wide-ranging knowledge of, international construction and real estate projects. She advises and litigates in relation to construction disputes about, for example, defects, contract extras, stagnation claims, retention rights and the dissolution/termination of contracts.

Jeanette regularly supports clients in relation to infrastructural projects in, for example, the groundwork, road and hydraulic engineering sector. These clients benefit from her practical approach and her capacity to translate extremely complex issues into clear language. She not only has an excellent feeling for the legal playing field, but also for the various interests that play a role in that, whether financial, political or commercial.

Jeanette has extensive knowledge of the rights and obligations of parties in the construction industry, such as Stabu, RAW, the Uniform Administrative Conditions (UAV 1989, UAV 2012, UAV-GC 2005) and the New Rules on Client-Architect Legal Relationships (DNR 2005/2011). In addition, she has extensive experience of litigating in the Court of Arbitration for the Building Industry in the Netherlands, as well as the civil courts.

Jeanette is also experienced in advising and litigating - in the civil courts or before arbitration boards - in connection with real estate transactions. This includes, for example, disputes resulting from the ‘breaking’ of sales and/or collaboration agreements, the settlement of damage claims due to nonconformity and ‘recession-related’ matters, such as financing problems or purchase obligation disputes.
