MONIQUE J.E. SPEE, LLM

Attorney-at-law & Mediator

SPEE advocaten & mediation Maastricht

My name is Monique Spee, and I am the founder and owner of SPEE advocaten & mediation, which has offices in Maastricht and at Maastricht Airport. As a lawyer and as a mediator, I specialize in labour law and in advising and assisting private individuals and entrepreneurs in a variety of civil law cases. As well as being a lawyer and mediator, I am also an entrepreneur, and I relish the challenge of drawing on that background and experience to actively support other entrepreneurs, even when a different facet of business is involved.
.
Our office has always enjoyed a strong reputation in labour law and, over the years has also become known for its expertise in company law and advising companies and private individuals. I advise on individual and group redundancies, reorganizations and takeovers, executive position and liability, labour conflicts, working conditions, occupational accidents, incapacity for work and cross-border employment law. In addition, I can help you with various aspects of the law of obligations.
.
As a horse owner and dressage rider, I have a special affinity with equine law, and can advise you on rights and obligations when buying and selling horses, drawing up contracts and so on.
.
My approach is practical, analytical, and solution-focused, with a very strong sense of justice. I never lose sight of the underlying relationships and personalities involved.
.
I have been a practising lawyer since 1998 and, since 2012, have been an officially registered mediator at, and a member of, the Mediatorsfederatie Nederland (Dutch mediation federation, MfN). Whether in their private or professional lives, people sometimes have more to gain from proper dialogue and conflict resolution, or from avoiding conflicts and the potential for litigation. In my role as a mediator, I restore dialogue between the parties to a business-related or personal dispute. In many cases, a solution can be found. If the problem turns out to be more deep-seated, I involve horses in the mediation process, as they possess a pure and infinite wisdom and an innate feel for the underlying dynamic.
.
You can come to me for both legal representation and advice, and for mediation. If you aren't sure what's best for you, or for your company or team, I am more than happy to help clarify your needs. Every problem is unique, and I believe there's a solution to every problem.
.
If there is an international dimension to a dispute and/or mediation, or the parties are international, rest assured that I am able to represent you or conduct mediation in German or English.

 

I have registered the following areas of legal practice in the rechtsgebiedenregister (register of legal practice areas) of the Netherlands Bar:

  • Labour Law;
  • Law of obligations.

 

This registration requires me to obtain 10 training credits per calendar year for each registered area of law, in accordance with the Netherlands Bar standards.
