Youssef’s temporary engagement of almost two years with Loyens & Loeff’s M&A department allows him to adequately take into account the commercial angles of an M&A deal as well when providing his assistance from an employment law perspective.

Youssef also has expert knowledge on the employment aspects surrounding insolvency or potential insolvency, and as such is also a member of the firm-wide Insolvency team. He has also been involved in several reorganisations and restructuring processes.

Youssef has recently completed his post-graduate employment law education (with honor and highest grades of the group) and has gained vast experience in sensitive employment law matters. As a trusted advisor Youssef manages to engage clients on a long-term basis.

Youssef regularly (co)publishes articles and comments in various employment case law journals, and is a co-author to the Chambers Global Guide Employment, the Netherlands section.
