Linda Dijkstra - Devillers

Linda Dijkstra has been a lawyer at La Gro Geelkerken since 2006. Over the years, she has developed into an experienced and committed tenancy law specialist who always manages to put cases in a proper perspective. With extensive knowledge of administrative law, expropriation law, and civil law, she can handle a wide range of complex tenancy law-related cases. Linda knows the environment in which her clients operate, which include healthcare providers, housing corporations, commercial landlords, hospitality businesses, large and medium-size enterprises, and private individuals. It has given her extensive experience drawing up and assessing leases and rental agreements. She is also often brought in to assist in the (early) termination of a lease or rental agreement on account of the redevelopment of a shopping centre and/or area. Linda sets great store by a personal approach and has a practical mindset. As a result, she has been assisting a broad array of clients for years. When she’s not working, Linda devotes her efforts to her local Rotary Club in Rijnwoude. She puts her social commitment into practice by sharing her knowledge and working for various (preferably local) charities together with her fellow members.
