Where there is a strong will, there is a way. As the daughter of a plant breeder, I learned this at an early age. This has made me a driven lawyer. Whatever my client wants, I will go on until it has been achieved – one way or another.
As a specialist in employment law, I give advice on dismissals, mass redundancies and employment issues in the event of mergers and takeovers. In particular, I advise on incapacity for work. This is extensive and complicated material, especially when the insurance schemes of employees are involved.
I help both employers and employees. This means that I am familiar with both sides of the negotiation table and I can empathise with the concerns of both parties. I am down to earth and to the point. I’m always there for my clients, and I see it as my mission to make often complicated legal points understandable for them. I don’t use legal jargon, but give clear advice that my clients can use.
I enjoy writing articles on employment law and privacy for Salaris Magazine, a publication for payroll professionals. I also write a column with practical legal tips for Bloemenkrant, a trade magazine for the floriculture sector. This is a great way to combine my roots with my profession.
I am also an expert in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for business owners and private individuals. This area of law is still growing by the day due to the enormous focus on and importance of privacy.
Last but not least, I am a family person. My husband, children, family and friends give me the warm support I need for my intensive work as a lawyer and defence counsel. I help people in the way I would like to be helped. That is my benchmark.
