For the past 10 years, Adrienne worked as an in-house corporate lawyer at real estate agency DTZ Zadelhoff, which later merged into “Cushman & Wakefield”. Since the end of 2016 she worked as Head Legal Netherlands.
Like no other is she familiar with the dynamics and legal issues in the commercial real estate market and brokerage issues. She specialises in commercial real estate law and legal issues relating to property management and property law. Her expertise focuses particularly on commercial tenancy law (both retail and offices), disputes about the purchase and sale of real estate and general contract law (general terms and conditions, assignments) related to real estate matters.
Adrienne studied law at the University of Amsterdam. After completing a legal master’s degree (MCJ) at New York University in 1992, she started as a lawyer at NautaDutilh in Amsterdam. There she first came into contact with real estate law in the broad sense. She advised property owners, housing corporations, project developers, municipalities and city districts on all kinds of matters in the field of real estate law.
In 2001, after years of legal practice, she moved to the commercial real estate market and worked as an in-house lawyer at various real estate companies. She was, among other things, involved in advising on a variety of matters in the field of tenancy law, assessing purchase / sale agreements, cooperation agreements, agreements with contractors, architects, advisers and assisting in legal (professional) liability disputes.
In April 2019, Adrienne joined Zeevenhooven Advocaten as a lawyer.
In addition to real estate law, Adrienne is also involved in debt collection cases. As an internal corporate lawyer, she directed debt collection agencies and external lawyers to collect the unpaid invoices from debtors/clients. Now she handles that herself for the sole purpose of ensuring that you receive the money to which you are entitled as quickly as possible. She does that smoothly, efficiently and on a pleasant no-nonsense basis. She can negotiate well and listen attentively. She also remains sincere and involved. In most cases, the costs for collecting the unpaid invoices are entirely for the debtor.
