Meet Elise

Elise Oonincx-Vreeburg has been a partner and head of the Labour Law section since 1 July 2013. She began her career in the legal profession in 1999 in Arnhem. When she met the love of her life in Rotterdam in 2004, she set off in search of a legal firm in the port city that fits her. When she found Kneppelhout, her choice came quickly and easily. From the first moment, she felt at home and respected in the firm. Besides, the firm’s motto ‘just do it’ fits her like a glove. Elise is an enthusiastic colleague with a strong sense of responsibility. Inside each dossier hides a legal challenge for her, as well as a person for whom she wants to make a difference and can do so.

Elise and Kneppelhout
‘I consciously chose labour law as my specialism. Work, security, colleagues and employers are important factors in life, after all. But this really becomes clear at the moment labour relations run into problems or cannot be continued due to economic circumstances. You start down a road together at the beginning with the best of intentions – something of that nature should also come to a good conclusion.’

‘Working with my client to bring a case to a good conclusion – that’s where my job satisfaction comes from. If this means that I have to get to the bottom of the matter, it is an extra bonus. To take it to the limit and defend the interests of the client, that is what being a lawyer is all about.’

‘As a lawyer specialised in labour law, I focus on all forms of employment. I therefore offer a wide package of services, which enables me to excel in the field of labour law. I consciously choose to have a long-term relationship with my clients. I am happy to stand shoulder to shoulder with them and I know their company well. This benefits the services I provide.’

‘For employees I want to be a real support, not only in legal areas. I ensure them that the case is in good hands with me and that they can really let it go.'
