Linda Couvreur is a very well-informed lawyer who goes an extra mile to get the best deal for her client. As an expat, I admire her way of working and strong cultural sensitivity.
I worked with Linda about a year ago to resolve a settlement agreement with my work. I was very stressed and confused and Linda was extremely helpful at all stages of the process. She was informative, transparent about the process and the costs, supportive of my wants and got me a much better deal than I hoped for. I thoroughly recommend working with her. Thanks again Linda!
Als emoties in de weg dreigen te staan bij een arbeidsdispuut voelt het wel zo veilig om bijgestaan te worden door een zeer deskundig bureau als Noordam Advocaten. Waar ik gedurende het proces nogal eens wilde schipperen, wist de heer Noordam als geen ander een consequente lijn in de regie te houden. Daarbij heeft hij mij altijd op de juiste momenten en op integere wijze voorzien van alle relevante informatie. De adviezen hebben geleid tot een realistische en gewaardeerde uitkomst, waarbij de onderhandelingsvaardigheden van de heer Noordam ertoe hebben geleid dat mijn keuze voor dit bureau in alle opzichten als zeer positief is ervaren.
Ik kan de werkwijze van de heer Noordam en mevrouw Couvreur niet anders dan doorwrocht betitelen, zonder daarbij oog voor de menselijke maat te verliezen. Met de focus op het eindresultaat en de uitermate prettige wijze van communiceren kan ik eenieder die met arbeidsrechtelijke vragen of conflicten zit Noordam Advocaten van harte aanbevelen.
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.
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.
