Meet Landine

Landine has been working as a lawyer since January 2014 and joined Kneppelhout & Korthals in September 2015. Ever since she was a little girl, Landine knew what she wanted to be: a lawyer! During her Corporate law Master’s programme at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam (EUR), she became interested in Intellectual Property law. Hence, she wrote her thesis about whether Christian Loubotin’s red soles could serve as a trademark. She gained relevant work experience by working as a paralegal at the IP practice group of De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek for six months. At the same time, she worked as a teacher at EUR, helping first year students find their way in the labyrinth of law. A true Rotterdam hands-on mentality!

This Rotterdam mentality of Kneppelhout is what appealed to Landine: 'clear communication, no nonsense, roll up your sleeves and give your all for the client.'

Landine likes to spend her spare time with friends and family. In terms of sports, she puts on her boxing gloves every week to learn the tricks of (kick)boxing.
