Marieke’s clients and colleagues praise her attention to detail. She achieves the best possible result for her clients by doing justice to the finer points of the case.
Appeals in cassation combine academic knowledge and legal practice. Marieke loves the challenge of the complex legal issues that arise in each and every Supreme Court appeal. No two cases are the same. All require an assessment of whether the law has been applied correctly in that specific situation and whether there is an opportunity to develop the law. Key elements in her work are a sharp analysis of the court’s ruling and a creative approach. She is always honest about what would make the best solution.
Marieke deals with appeals in cassation across the full spectrum of civil law. Examples include inheritance law, property law and family law. She is particularly interested in employment law; she provides advice and conducts litigation in cassation for employees, employers and trade unions.
