Jitteke Blussé van Oud Alblas
Following her studies, Jitteke worked for a time as a court clerk in preliminary injunction proceedings. She gained experience in the maritime world and the insurance practice at NautaDutilh. In 2008, she graduated cum laude from the Grotius specialisation programme in Transport Law. In 2011, she also graduated cum laude from the Ocean Marine Insurance Course programme at Erasmus University Rotterdam. In 2013, she successfully completed the Magna Charta Course in Insurance Law at the Academy for Legal Practice. Jitteke has worked at Kneppelhout since 2008.
Jitteke focuses her efforts on insurance and transport. She works for entrepreneurs, insurers, real-estate agents, experts and correspondents inside the Netherlands and abroad. She communicates with all of these parties not only in Dutch, but also in English, German and French.
Jitteke has handled a range of prominent cases, including the ‘Annette/Linda’ case (liability of classification societies), the ‘Arcturus’ case (breaking through limited liability), and the ‘Pacelli’ case (insurance of third parties and the conjunction of marine hull insurance and shipbuilding insurance). She regularly serves internally and externally as a lecturer. She is also active in training young lawyers as a member of the moot court, among other places.
Jitteke and Kneppelhout
‘The things I find important are thorough fact finding, procedural and substantive knowledge of cases, good relations with my peers, constructive solutions and a clear and open approach to the client, the opposing party and the court judge. And when all of this takes place in a spirited, yet civil atmosphere, it gives me a feeling of extreme satisfaction. My interest in everything that relates to shipping and shipbuilding comes from a family tradition.’
‘Outside office hours, you can often find me plying the waters in a sailing boat. I also make music.’
