Honest, Committed and Result-Driven
Renske is an astute attorney who gets to the bottom of things. She is honest, personally involved and reliable, and believes in close interaction with the client. “I think it’s particularly important to give clear advice and deliver on promises on time. I also like to determine the best strategy for each case, for both in and out of court. That way, I can choose the best result.”

Outstanding in Complex Cases
Renske excels in complex cases because of her analytical skills, her sharp pen and her ‘fingerspitzengefühl’ to strike the right chord in court. She is also a published author and has written The emergency provision of Section 223 of the Dutch Civil Procedure Code, in which she discusses the possibilities of the 223 provision as an alternative to summary proceedings.
