Bringing people together is a natural form of building bridges. It requires understanding and knowledge.

Weer een verplichte beëindiging van een slapend dienstverband

Wanneer de werkgever na twee jaar ziekte in dienst houdt, zonder dat de werknemer nog arbeid verricht en loon ontvangt, dan is er sprake van een slapend dienstverband.

Op 29 juli 2019 heeft een kantonrechter te Arnhem geoordeeld dat een werkgever verplicht is om het dienstverband met een langdurig zieke werknemer te beëindigen (ECLI:NL:RBGEL:2019:3440).

Sylvia Broeseliske

Property law, insolvency law, restarts.

Reaching agreements and setting them clearly down in writing is often the best way to prevent legal disputes. If a dispute arises nevertheless, then I opt for a ‘down-to-earth’ approach. A pragmatic solution. The fact is that litigation is not always the best way given that people may possibly still want to do business with each other in the future. Furthermore, litigation costs time, money and energy. And in practice, being right does not automatically mean winning in court.

Robert Nolten

Insolvency law, commercial law, attachment and execution law, debt collection.

Prevention is better than cure, but it is often already too late when a lawyer is engaged. That’s the moment when a strategy has to be devised where your interests are given priority and, at the same time, separate attention is given to the costs and benefits. What exactly is your issue? A plan of action is developed together with the client. Can the dispute still be resolved amicably and to your satisfaction? This is generally preferred. If this is actually no longer possible and litigation is unavoidable, then you can count on a substantial quantity of combativeness and a tireless and dauntless advocate.


  • Master’s degree in company law and commercial law;
  • Member of JIRA, Dutch Association of Young Insolvency Law Practitioners;
  • The court appoints Nolten as bankruptcy trustee.
