I was referred to Linda Couvreur at Noordam Advocaten by a friend of mine. I had some questions about my contract and help with negotiations with my employer. She was extremely helpful, available and informative. I was looking for peace of mind and she provided this with a knowledgeable insight into Dutch employment law. I am grateful for her work and her kindness. I have happily recommended her since.
I worked with Linda Couvreur in order to be provided with legal advice and guidance in regard to a termination agreement with my employer. Linda paid good attention to every detail and every aspect of the agreement and took time to understand my needs and the particularities of my case. She was very responsive to my emails and her guidance gave me confidence and peace during this process. If I need any legal guidance in the future, I would definitely ask Linda Couvreur again.
I worked with Linda Couvreur at Noordam Employment Law to resolve a dispute with a former employer, and I am extremely pleased with both the collaboration and the outcome of the dispute. Linda is an outstanding lawyer – not only is she extraordinarily knowledgeable, strategic, and professional, she goes above and beyond that by being a genuinely caring, kind, and trustworthy person.
In my collaboration with Linda, I never felt like I was just another “case” – I always felt that she saw and understood me and the intricacies of my specific employment dispute. Linda took the time to fully research and understand the dispute and the events leading up it; she was always available and communicative throughout the process; and she was completely transparent in keeping me updated about the costs involved. As an expat, I was not familiar with Dutch employment law and understandably felt distressed about that; however, Linda led me to a resolution of the dispute in the clearest, most efficient, and most professional manner possible.
It is never ideal to find oneself in a situation in which legal representation is needed. However, those who do would be very wise and fortunate to secure the services of Linda Couvreur at Noordam Employment Law. She is an extraordinary lawyer and a person of great integrity, and I unreservedly give her my highest recommendation.Verder lezen “Don”
I first sought legal advice from Mr. Noordam in 2018 in anticipation of a restructure at my company (2000+ employees). At that time, he shared his deep knowledge and experience of Dutch Employment Law, helping me to understand the legal process for employers, and outlining possible outcomes for me as an employee. With this I was able to enter the process fully prepared. I sought his advice again in 2020 during a departmental reorganization, and most recently in June 2021, where he helped me successfully negotiate a settlement agreement for redundancy with my company after 5+ years at a Director level.
Arnoud’s expertise, compassion and patience has been invaluable to me during challenging times, each time resulting in positive outcomes I may not have otherwise achieved alone. In addition to helping me understand my contract terms and legal obligations for companies in the Netherlands, he has reminded me of my value as a professional and to be confident in holding my employer accountable. For 3+ years Noordam Advocatuur has been and remains my first port of call when seeking legal advice, and I highly recommend their services.
My friend has been unjustly and illegally fired by her employer, so we sought for legal assistance via Noordam Advocatuur. We’ve been contacted the very day after by one of their lawyers, Linda Couvreur, who immediately scheduled a phone call to have a clear overview of the situation in English (we do not speak Dutch that well, unfortunately).
Since the very beginning she has been extremely professional and helpful, always explaining in the clearest way how my friend should have proceeded. Her precious legal advise allowed my friend to finalise the most desirable settlement agreement without having to reach the courtroom and in less than a month from our first contact. She could have not been assisted in a better way!
Next to Linda’s legal competence, her constant availability and prompt replies represent the icing on the cake. 5 stars are not even enough: she honestly deserves 10. If me or my friend will ever need legal assistance again (hopefully not!), we will definitely turn to Noordam Advocatuur and Linda Couvreur once again and we strongly recommend you doing the same!
I contacted Mr Arnoud Noordam after receiving a settlement agreement from my employer. Arnoud very quickly grasped the background and was able to propose many options to leverage the case. His ability to provide such a succinct response made it a very easy process and one that resulted in a much better outcome than was previously presented. He really helped me through this difficult time. I would definitely recommend Noordam Advocatuur to friends or family if they ever need support in the future.
Being a young professional in Netherlands, I cannot describe how lucky and satisfied I feel after working with Arnoud Noordam to deal with a time sensitive labour issue. I was heard, I was guided and most of all I felt really protected at any given time. Great response time, frequent checks on the progress of the case just made this unpleasant experience very smooth. I haven’t had a lawyer service before for any issue of mine, but Arnoud really sets the bar high for me.
A friend of mine recommended to get in touch with Noordam Advocatuur when I had some tough discussions with my employer. As an expat, I had only very limited knowledge about Dutch law and needed a real specialist of labour law. I was lucky to be assisted by Linda, who has always been reactive, knowledgeable and efficient. She was always service oriented and transparent about the costs of services. I fully recommend Noordam Advocatuur and Linda for people in need of legal advice. Thank you!
Ms. Couvreur negotiated a termination contract for me, resulting in much more favorable terms than initially proposed by my employer. While I have no prior experience using the services of a lawyer, I ended up gaining much more financially than I had to invest, so I consider that a success. Communication was quick, clear and pleasant throughout and we sorted everything from beginning to end via zoom, phone and email.
As an expat, I was not familiar with the employment laws so I contacted Noordam Advocatuur and Linda was very helpful, professional, and efficient throughout the whole process. I got answers to all my questions and concerns until the case was settled. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone who needs legal help!
