Mediation if possible, litigation if necessary.
Laura Leunissen has been a lawyer since 1998. Initially, she worked as a general legal advisor and litigator. In 2002, Laura specialised in employment law. From 2005, Laura has been specialising in the law of persons and family law and subsequently in divorce mediation and in inheritance law.
In a family law practice it isn’t only legal and professional issues that play an important role, but also emotional ones. To come to an arrangement that can help both (former) partners and their children to come to terms with the situation, Laura prefers mediation or other ways to find solutions for the problems that have arisen between (former) partners. When an amicable settlement appears not to be feasible within a reasonable period of time, litigation may be the only way out. Laura’s clients can then count on her experience, skills and abilities to protect their best interests in court.
Laura has a sound knowledge and much experience in the field of inheritance law, both in giving advice and in litigation. In complex disputes Laura’s aim is to find practical solutions, together with her clients.
Laura’s current specialisms include: the law of persons and family law in a broad sense, inheritance law and (divorce) mediation.
