“Experienced employment lawyers know which interests are at stake”

We advise and litigate in all areas of employment law. For example, individual dismissal cases, reorganizations or employee participation issues.

Should a complex case exceed our expertise, for example in the event that a matter covers more areas of law, we work closely with other specialized firms with the same quality standards and passion for their work.
Zilver Advocaten assists both large and small employers as well as employees. In particular, we focus on companies, works councils and senior management.

Our clients are located throughout the Netherlands and are active in the following sectors or branches: publishing, retail, industry, childcare, banking and insurance, funeral, hospitality, housing, real estate, non-profit, sports, information technology, wholesale and construction.

Why to choose for Zilver Advocaten

Our lawyers have each earned their spurs in employment law and therefore bring with them vast experience, gained at large and renowned firms. This enables us to act quickly, to maintain overview and to advise in short and understandable language.

Employment law is also people’s business. This requires a personal approach with short lines of communication. You always work directly with one of our lawyer-partners. And you know that we know your industry and case in detail. This way we can guarantee the best service.

We are fully specialized in and committed to employment law. In addition to advising our clients, we are regularly asked to publish in professional journals, such as ArbeidsRecht (Employment Law) and Jurisprudentie Arbeidsrecht («JAR») (Case Law on Employment Law) and to participate in employment law podcasts, such as 9 to 5. We also maintain close contacts with our fellow employment law specialists with a view to sharing knowledge. In this way we maintain our lead and ‘edge’ in our field.

In addition, our lawyers are all members of the Dutch Employment Lawyers Association (VAAN), a high-quality specialist association to which only experienced employment lawyers who have successfully completed an officially recognized specialist training in employment law and demonstrably follow annual training courses, are admitted.

With Zilver Advocaten you immediately have an extensive network of specialists. Should a complex case exceed our expertise, for example because of a case that covers more areas of law, we work closely with specialized firms with the same quality standards and passion for their work.
