Melanie is a partner specialised in dispute resolution. Before joining JB Law, she worked at Allen & Overy and Houthoff and gained international experience in London. Melanie was brought up trilingual and speaks fluent Dutch as well as English and German.

“Not everything can be solved at the negotiating table. Sometimes you have no choice but to litigate to protect the arrangements made in a deal. I have extensive experience with takeovers disputes, shareholder disputes, managing directors’ and supervisory directors’ liability, inquiry proceedings before the Enterprise Court of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal and class action proceedings.”
