Associate - Transaction Lawyer
Robert Goedhart, transaction lawyer, is a member of the Employment & Benefits practice group in our Rotterdam office. He focuses on advice and legal proceedings regarding the scope of application of mandatory industry-wide regulations in the Netherlands.
For around ten years, Robert is part of the L&L-team that has extensive experience in advice and legal proceedings regarding the scope of application of mandatory industry-wide regulations in the Netherlands, such as collective bargaining agreements and pension fund regulations. In case a company that’s active in the Netherlands does not apply any of these mandatory regulations (or perhaps applies the incorrect ones), the scope of the risk connected with this possible non-compliance should be assessed. Claims regarding this type of regulations in the Netherlands can have a retrospective effect of many years and the financial stakes are often high.
