"You reach the best solution by examining things in greater detail."

The approach I have to my work is diligent, engaged and specific. I enjoy exploring complex problems and converting them into practical advice. Alongside legal issues, there are often other factors at play. What exactly does the client want? By exploring the question widely, I can provide clear and succinct advice and work with the client to achieve the best solution.

My focus is on employment law and legal proceedings and I specialise in collective and individual dismissal cases, remuneration policy and employment participation law. I also have experience in amending terms and conditions of employment, non-competition, privacy and the policy aspects of employment law, for instance dealing with social media at work.

Travelling is my greatest passion. As a student, I had the good fortune to study in Sydney and in Shanghai. This gave me an opportunity to learn about completely different legal systems whilst also exploring some of the world’s most beautiful places. Two absolutely wonderful experiences! I love discovering new things and new cultures. To escape from the hustle and bustle, I enjoy running and doing yoga.

Areas of focus:
Employment law, remuneration policy, employee participation, Dutch and international contract law and procedural law
