Mandy knew that she wanted to become a lawyer from childhood. She studied International and European Public Law, followed by a Master’s with a specialization in Union Law. Before graduation, Mandy worked at the European Economic Social Committee in Brussels. When she returned to the Netherlands, she started her second Master’s degree in Law with a specialization in Employment Law. After her studies, she sent an open application to the then Maes Staudt Advocaten and now, eight years later, she has grown into the all-round international (labor law) labor migration lawyer she is today.
At Maes Law, Mandy helps clients with questions about the inflow, promotion or outflow of employees without an EU / EEA / Swiss nationality. For Mandy, the best thing about her job is the good relationship with her clients and helping clients to resolve the problems they foresee before they happen. Problems are there to be solved, and that is exactly what Mandy is for. She thinks beyond just the proposed problem, and is happy to advise on how processes can be adapted to prevent such problems in the future. Mandy’s solution oriented approach provides her clients with accessibility and speed of outcome to place their minds at ease.
In addition to her work at Maes Law, Mandy has published articles for the trade journal Over de Grens where she was also editor-in-chief ad interim. She is also a lecturer for OSR, an active member of the Specialists Association of Migration Lawyers (SVMA) and regularly provides courses through the Holland Expat Center South.
