'From a young age, I have been going for the win, for the highest achievable goal. Whether that's a game or the work I do.'

At Boontje Advocaten, we practice employment law at the highest level. That suits me. From a young age, I have been going for the win, for the highest achievable goal. Whether that’s a game or the work I do. At Boontje Advocaten it’s all about the actual gain. Which is more than winning alone. I promise my clients that I will promote their interests to the best of my ability. By being alert to their needs, helping to devise solutions to legal and other problems, providing guidance and being specific. Don’t expect any long, woolly legal advice from me. My advice is practical and thorough. I advise and litigate in employment law issues in the broadest sense. I like to negotiate and to discuss the best approach in reorganisations and restructurings.”
