Barbara Boertje



Employment law is my main specialty. I represent both employers and employees. This keeps me sharp and wide oriented and I don't develop tunnel vision. I also always keep a keen eye on the human side. I regularly deal with the manifestly unreasonable dismissal of a statutory director. In such cases, there is a special tension between the person of the director and company law. In my colleagues I find pleasant sparring partners, the atmosphere in our law firm is relaxed. Our organization is flat, the lines are short and there is a lot of specialised knowledge.
