She assists both national and international companies with their complex employment issues. These concern, for example, restructuring, closure of companies, trade secret protection, diversity in the workplace, termination of employment agreements, drafting and reviewing of employment agreements, work regulations and policies, drafting and negotiating Collective Bargaining Agreements, and audits/due diligence for multinationals. Evelien has also gained particular experience in international employment and global mobility projects (including work permits).

Already “noted” for her employment work in the 2019 edition of the legal journal Legal 500 EMEA, Evelien is ranked as a Rising Star in the 2020 edition, where she is further described as a “key name” in the department.
