Appeal in cassation

Taking an appeal to the Supreme (Cassation) Court

Do you disagree with the judgment on appeal? Or are you of the opinion that the Court of Appeal has made mistakes in your lawsuit? In some cases it is possible to take an appeal to the Supreme Court (Hoge Raad).

Cassation proceedings are the final possibility to contest a judgment in legal proceedings in the Netherlands. The Supreme Court (Hoge Raad) reviews whether the law and the procedural rules have been applied correctly. The Supreme Court may quash a ruling of the Court of Appeal. The appeals in cassation concern civil, criminal and tax cases.
