Gabriël Troostwijk, CEO of web agency 9Yards:

“Babs has helped us draw up employment contracts and advises us in employment related issues. She is trustworthy, competent and sociable. If there are employment disputes she is always looking for mediation, rapprochement and compromise. Because of her calm and composure she knows how to ease the conflict. It’s very comfortable having a specialist to whom I can safely delegate these things. Babs comes across as a very approachable and pleasant person, who is also very competent. She knows how to explain things in a calm manner, yet without beating around the bush. She gets to the core of an issue in a charming, non-confrontational way. Babs is easy to get a hold of and quick to respond. Whenever I need preventive advice to know my position, Babs is able to supply it to me very quickly. Because of her in-depth and up-to-date knowledge, she often does this from memory. Labour law is like the first aid of the legal profession, because you often need an immediate legal perspective. Babs always gives me a very fast assessment. Whenever people in my network deal with labour related problems, I often tell them to call Babs because she is able to provide that first aid.”
