‘During my internship in a maritime practice, I was told that shirts were sold in Rotterdam with their sleeves already rolled up. That’s the kind of attitude I likes’.
Antoinette (graduated from Leiden University 1989) specialises in employment law. After work experience with Nauta Dutilh in Rotterdam during her student years, she enjoyed working for the same firm for almost ten years as a lawyer, first in the Transport Department, then the European Law/Company Law Departments and finally the Employment Law Department.
In 1999 Antoinette set up business on her own, specialising in employment law, having successfully passed the Post-Academic Employment-Law Course (PALA) in 2001.
Her client base includes businesses, insurance companies and private clients.
Her day-to-day work includes advising employers or employees in individual or group redundancies, interpreting non-competition clauses, drafting/advising on employment contracts, as well as advising behind the scenes to avoid disputes.
In addition to employment law and termination of employment law, Antoinette has over the years handled professional liability cases on behalf of insurance companies and their insurees; this involves potential professional errors in employment-law cases, for which lawyers and other legal advisors are held liable. She also has wide experience in cases in which claims are made against company doctors and occupational health services.
Antoinette acted as deputy judge at the Court of Zeeland-West Brabant for two years. She applies this experience to the advice she gives her clients.
As a specialist in employment law and termination of employment law, Antoinette is a member of specialist organisations the VRAA (Rotterdam Association of Employment-Law Lawyers) and the VAAN (Netherlands Association of Employment-Law Lawyers).
