Caroline de Weerdt

Caroline has been an attorney since 1990 at La Gro Geelkerken Advocaten and its legal predecessor. Caroline embraces the challenge in her work by quickly seeing connections and understanding problems, and then using all her specialised experience to find the optimal solution. She can operate in many ways: advising in the background or actively negotiating or litigating before various bodies (courts, disciplinary tribunals and/or arbitration tribunals). Her 12 years of experience as a Disciplinary Judge at the Raad van Discipline (Discipline Council) of The Hague (until May 1, 2019) also comes in handy. Clients appreciate her expertise and proactive way of working.

Specialist Employment law & Insolvency, financing and securities

I have long-term relationships with my clients. I like to operate as a supporter and advocate when problems arise, but also especially to prevent problems. Because I have been around for years in many organisations, I know the ins and outs. This makes it possible to communicate quickly and effectively.
