I am an associate in our Dispute Resolution Group, based in The Hague. I specialise in commercial litigation with a focus on technology.

In recent years, I have been involved in contentious civil matters, with both national and international aspects, including contractual disputes and liability issues in the tech & comms, insurance and construction sectors. In addition, I deal with lease disputes (commercial and residential) as well as IT and software development disputes.

Being a litigation lawyer, I particularly enjoy converting our clients' position into a substantiated legal argumentation. I like presenting a legal or factual, and often technical, position on behalf of clients in an inventive, strategic and/or practical way, depending on the resolution sought. I am convinced that adding a personal note will help to resolve a dispute.

Together, our team will always come up with a tailor-made approach. If necessary this also includes litigation and, in a later phase, the enforcement of a judgment. I also have ample experience in pre-judgment seizure of assets. A substantial part of our work is done in close cooperation with our international colleagues and colleagues from our other local departments. Our The Hague office is basically located at sea (you can almost see the London office). A bonus is that, from the office, I can easily take my racing bike through the beautiful dune landscapes. This is where some of the best ideas, arguments and strategies (as well as punchlines) originate.

I am the co-author of 'Het ex parte bevel', a handbook on IP law enforcement (Maas & Maalderink, BJu, Den Haag, 2016).

  • We represented an international client in a dispute with several Dutch internet service providers (ISPs), in which we demanded to immediately take down hundreds of email accounts used by an anonymous perpetrator for stalking and threatening, and to provide us with the personal customer data of the customer of the ISPs. We initiated preliminary relief proceedings and all of our claims were awarded the same day in an immediate head-and-tail judgment ('kopstaartvonnis').
  • We represent a construction company in various legal and technical disputes with commissioning parties and subcontractors. We also deal with insurance law matters. Our insurance disputes practice includes, inter alia, machinery breakdowns, PI policies and corporate liability insurances (AVB).
  • We represented a multinational in a dispute on whether the counterparty - a major European company - was obliged to purchase a certain minimum amount of services from our client and whether it would have to pay the remaining amount of this minimum spend commitment. All claims were awarded.
  • We represent a large telecom provider in recovering damage to its underground network and critical infrastructure, often caused during construction work or poor maintenance. Our in depth sector knowhow enables us to deal with these kind of disputes in a highly efficient and effective way.
