Maes Law added a new expertise: with the arrival of Ronald M. Beltzer and Tessa Lust, our new employment law / labour law section has been created. Cigdem Özcan (professional support lawyer) and Kelly van Baarle (legal intern) will support Ronald and Tessa in their work.
Great news, because this means that you can also contact Maes Law for changes to terms of employment, transfer of an undertaking, reorganisations, dismissal, flexible work, collective bargaining agreements, illness, etc. More information about our employment law / labour law section can be found here.
Ronald Beltzer is a former professor of Employment Law & Business Law at the University of Amsterdam and a former Justice at the Netherlands Enterprise Court at the Amsterdam Court of Appeal. He held both positions for a long time, but he has now made the switch to the legal profession. In addition, he has written numerous articles and books, and he is among the absolute top of the Netherlands when employment law is concerned. He loves difficult cases.
Tessa is a former teacher of Employment Law & Legal Tech at Leiden University of Applied Sciences, and before that she taught Employment Law at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. She specialises in the more ‘down to earth’ form of employment law, which means that she is your first point of contact for frequently occurring employment-law questions and issues. Where necessary, she works together closely with Ronald, and she is also the liaison between employment law and the currently even bigger sister within our firm: corporate immigration and cross-border employment.
Whether your case concerns dismissal or collective dismissal, a sick employee, an acquisition (and therefore issues relating to the transfer of an undertaking), a reorganisation, advice to or about works councils, collective bargaining issues or a scope of application investigation, flexible work, etc., we have the highest level of expertise in house. Naturally, under the familiar label of Maes Law.
Please do not hesitate to contact Ronald or Tessa if you have any questions!
Please note: we owe a lot to and have great respect for the many law firms who refer cases to us - mainly via their employment law practice groups - and this is why we will not assist referred clients in employment law cases.
