Lawyer – Employment Law Specialist – Interim

The lawyer behind The Employment Law Desk.

I am Annette de Groot

A Rotterdam born, Amsterdam resident. With more than 15 years of experience navigating the jungle of law.

I have been working in the legal profession since 2012. Specialized in employment law, dismissal issues and restructuring. I offer support to large, international companies, but also to individuals.

I do not shy away from confrontations. I negotiate strongly to get the most out of each case.

I am a fast, analytical thinker. Entrepreneurial, creative and adventurous. As an Excel virtuoso I like to see numbers, diagrams, frames and grids. I tend to be a perfectionist.

I have successfully completed the specialization education Postgraduate Course in Employment Law at the Erasmus University and I am a member of the Association of Employment Lawyers in the Netherlands. That is why I am allowed to proudly use the specialist hallmark of the Dutch Bar Association.

But I want to do it differently.

Not like traditional lawyers. Because that doesn't suit me.
And - I think - it does not suit the clients, organisations and the desires of today.

Business operations are becoming more efficient everywhere. In today's society we are critical of the antique ways of working and traditions. This also includes the lawyer's working method.

That is why efficiency and a good value for money are important to me. As well as attention to the environment: no piles of paper and costly office space. I will drop by at your location for a meeting. By taking the bike or train. Or we connect by telephone, via digital channels or in my pop-up office. You can read more about this in the interview with Advocatie about why I can be called 'a lawyer of the present'.

This way of working not only prevents unnecessary costs and kilometers, it also saves you and me precious time.

For the same reasons, I am pragmatic, straightforward, clear and fast. I like adding structure to your chaos.

Do not hesitate to call me.

You can call me without hesitation. Because a phone call with your lawyer should not only be useful, it should also be relaxed. Informal and pleasant.

Please ask me anything. I am happy to help and to relieve you of your problem or uncertainty.
A potential labor dispute is stressful enough as it is.
