Litigation

The attorneys of De Cuba Wever have a vast experience in conducting legal proceedings before the Court of First Instance of Aruba as well as the Joint Appellate Court of Aruba, Curacao, St. Maarten and of Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba for clients from a wide range of sectors in procedurally complex and high value civil, corporate, administrative and tax matters. Our clients include, both plaintiffs and respondents, financial institutions, insurance companies, real estate developers, telecommunication providers and hotels. We assist in matters that are often procedurally complex involving multiple jurisdictions.

We provide highly specialized tax litigation assistance to clients in (collection) proceedings against the Aruba tax authorities, to the extent that an out of court settlement could not be reached. We also guide and assist clients who wish to call on the voluntary disclosure scheme (inkeerregeling).

Deep local and on the ground knowledge enables our team to move quickly when a (prejudgment) arrest is necessary, for example with respect to funds, vessels or aircraft that need to be arrested on short notice.
