Personable, pleasant and always prompt and effective in responding.
Martine van Krieken-Boersma is very thorough, personable, knowledgeable and responds very quickly to questions. In short, outstanding!
As an organisation, we contracted SPEE advocaten & mediation to test our way of working in the Netherlands for achievability, as we are a foreign company and do business abroad it goes without saying that it might need to be changed in the Netherlands. Martine van Krieken-Boersma did an excellent job. We are extremely grateful to her and can warmly recommend SPEE advocaten & mediation.
Excellent! Good workflow - listening - researching - advising/proactive thinking - create.
Pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable.
I got good help with a non-standard question.
Advice on pros and cons is given in a pleasant but businesslike manner. As a client, you are part of the team that handles the case and together we think about strategy, working method and planning.
To the point and quick.
Monique Spee has helped me tremendously, was very quick in her feedback and is an expert in her trade like no other!
Professionally precise; inoffensively objective; listen, mind, and base opinions only on fact
It was a long and complicate case presented, on both the structure and the content, with very much twisted information. Pretty annoying when trying to understand in limited time. I knew SPEE only by a case I ever read about. While not actually knowing each other, SPEE managed to calmly read through the scenarios from the conversation, solve the puzzle based on the documents presented, and independently give the unbiased opinion. I regret a lot (absolutely as compliments!) for not allowed to have SPEE as advocaat as I wished after the independent opinion. In any scenario I will give SPEE my recommendation.
Expert advice combined with a personal approach.
Expert and clear advice, plus a listening (and analytical) ear. They get straight to the point, which ultimately led to the prevention of a lawsuit. Needless to say that we are very satisfied with both the approach and the result!
Sound legal knowledge combined with great commitment leads to appropriate advice.
As a layman in the legal field, it is initially frightening when you are confronted with legal actions. Especially the consequences are frightening. However, the level-headed and clear view of Monique Spee of SPEE lawyers & mediation took away the uncertainty and brought nuance to the overwhelming legal correspondence from the other party. What particularly struck us was the very high level of involvement and the effort taken to translate legal language and actions into understandable language for us.
Very happy! I am very satisfied with the way I was assisted in a legal proceeding that was nothing but harassment by the other party.
Skilled, thoughtful and compassionate.
Monique is very patient and clear with her communication. Professional!
Excellent advice and quick and decisive action.
SPEE advocaten & mediation have assisted us with excellent legal advice in an employment conflict. On the basis of that advice, SPEE advocaten & mediation have guided us carefully and resolutely through the conclusion process. Short lines of communication, perfect follow-up and very tight and convincing communication with the opposite party. Legal support provided entirely to our wishes, please don’t change a thing!
Fast settlement of the termination of an employment contract: thanks to the advice and assistance of SPEE advocaten & mediation, we have been able to terminate a fixed-term employment contract prematurely in a proper and correct manner by means of a VSO.
Very fast and adequate support.
I am very positive about the support. The lawyers Monique Spee and Martine van Krieken act very quickly and adequately. They are also available 24/7 and committed.
Smooth and clear communication. The mediation process was quickly set up and worked out. A solution was reached to everyone's satisfaction.
Pleasant, professional, warm. .
I have experienced the mediation with Monique Spee as very pleasant. She radiates confidence and warmth, while she approaches the discussions energetically and is not afraid to ask the right questions.
We were relieved of all our worries by SPEE lawyers & mediation.
Clear, accurate and very pleasant service. The cooperation is taken up and carried out with attention and care.
Clear commitments and correct follow up.
The office gives an honest advice about the feasibility and is clear in the expectations. During the process, there is always sufficient communication about the progress.
Just great lawyers, who listen to you and are there for you. Super law firm!
Great lawyer! Professional and to the point.
I would like to thank the mediator once again for the good support, from the first moment it felt right. This was the first time I went into mediation and hopefully the only time, although I never had a bad feeling before, during or after the mediation sessions. I am truly grateful that I chose Monique Spee. The picture on the website and the story underneath immediately gave me a good feeling, she radiates calm and confidence. During the mediation she is decisive, to the point, but all this from love; this is how I felt and experienced it. Without the mediation and her guidance, I would never have had the chance to reintegrate according to the rules of the law. It hasn't all gone well, but at the same time I have learned beautiful life lessons from it. I had lost confidence in myself for a while and that confidence came back during the mediation and that is partly due to what Monique radiates and conveys. She is a beautiful and sweet person, with her heart in the right place, sincere, honest, with a portion of curiosity that is important to reach solutions and with attention to the emotions of both parties, without judging them. A completely unique, and I suspect special, way of mediation. There is always respect for both parties and what I like best is that she masters the art of turning negative into positive. The fact that she discusses what someone experiences as negative, but does not refer to it as such later on: as far as I am concerned, that is her strength. I hope that one day I may meet her under different circumstances, she is a source of inspiration. I suspect that this is not the "standard" way of working for a mediator and I am therefore extremely grateful that I ended up at SPEE advocaten & mediation when I was looking for a mediator.
Fine way of working. The mediator took her role well and kept the overview. The mediator did not get carried away. Skilled and above all sufficiently assertive. Therefore insensitive to manipulations.
Very professional, expert, careful with human dimensions and empathy, mediator Monique Spee knows how to find a balance between the interests of those involved and how to work constructively towards a solution.
Committed and knowledgeable. If you need a lawyer, better a good one!
Professional, clear and determined to reach agreement.
Compliments for the good mediation meetings.
Professional and friendly approach.
Martine van Krieken helped me along all the process of negotiations with my employer, in a constructive and effective manner.
A big nine. A regrettable purchase of a product with major consequences. Fast action and follow-up made a good start. After the first letter and some waiting (as it should be) more important information came to light. After weighing the pros and cons for a while, we consulted Mrs. Van Krieken again. After weighing up the costs and benefits, we decided to close the case, but were well advised and supported.
Driven and adequate. Monique Spee is our regular lawyer. That says it all. If we have a problem or if something happens, we immediately go to SPEE. They know where the bottlenecks are with an honest look at both the case and the bottom line. They know what needs to be done!
As always, good service, fast response and of course well-founded and explained.
Very friendly contact with Mrs van Krieken-Boersma.
Always punctual and detailed report on the state of matters. Highly targeted approach. Pleasant telephone calls and meetings. 100% successful in the matter.
Very involved and expert firm, committed to you as a customer in an empathetic and very involved way. Reliable and good.
Personal, committed and professional.
Excellent legal advice and support.
SPEE advocaten & mediation have supported us in a number of legal cases. The cooperation was very pleasant and we experienced the advice as highly professional. The cases were well prepared and the communication was careful and complete. We can certainly recommend SPEE advocaten & mediation.
Very satisfied. Pleasant communication and knowledgeable staff.
Professional, expert and with an eye for the interests of both parties.
Monique Spee has guided the advised mediationprocess in a very professional manner. Constantly focused on an optimal final outcome for both parties and with equality of all involved, as a basis.
With a feeling for the emotional side, everything was handled in a businesslike and serene manner.
Apart from the fact that we won our case, there was a pleasant feeling during the entire procedure: here we are in the right place, here they listen to us and here they know how to translate this into a thorough consideration.
I received good advice that was needed in this precarious situation.
Empathic, no-nonsense, straightforward, fast and clear in motivation. They think in terms of solutions. In short, they understand their profession.
Good advice and timely, prompt and knowledgeable resolution.

First rate! All I can say is, this mediation was conducted flawlessly by Monique Spee. Everything was clear, and she was so professional. She got straight to the crux of the matter. Thanks so much, Monique!
Mediation with consideration for both parties, to the point. Impartial, independent, incisive, exerting just the right amount of pressure, empathic.
The mediation process was really constructive, and everyone's interests and feelings were handled with professionalism. I felt really safe throughout the process.
Well-structured approach, professional, results-focused.
10/10 in all respects, fully lived up to my expectations.
I was reassured by the genuine commitment. The first time we spoke, I could tell my case was in good hands. Knowing that somebody genuinely cares puts you at ease and gives you confidence. I have little experience of litigation and/or negotiations, but because they always kept me in the loop, I always knew what was going on. I would recommend SPEE advocaten & mediation to anyone, and would like to thank them again for their great service.
SPEE advocaten & mediation are able to take the emotion out of the situation, and understand what makes the employee tick. Thanks to a thorough personnel file and a detailed record of new developments as the case progressed, we were able to bring the employment relationship to a satisfactory conclusion
Their handling of the case was meticulous, straightforward, and diligent. Meester Martine van Krieken-Boersma and meester Wil Dols were very professional, clear, and reassuring in their dealings with us.
Attentive, precise, and highly knowledgeable. Meester van Krieken-Boersma, the lawyer who handled our case, listened to what we wanted and dealt swiftly and expertly with our file, preparing the matter for appeal with all the professionalism one would expect.
Fast, professional, empathic, and friendly personal advice.
Objective, genuine interest in the case, quick communication, space for me to say what I needed to, understanding of the ups and downs of my personal situation. The guidance and mentoring I received were appropriate to me as an individual, and to the situation.
Very effective, dynamic mediator and mediation. Strong commitment to the process.
I've built a good relationship with SPEE advocaten & mediation. They’re very professional, give thorough advice, and are very proactive.
Dependable, respectful support. Good knowledge of the case and of my rights and obligations, and sound advice.
Thorough, fast, and solution-focused. I quickly reached a settlement agreement with a (now former) employee after obtaining advice from SPEE advocaten & mediation.
Comprehensive, available, very professional. I appreciated to be helped in my problematic situation. The service is nice, as the office. I appreciated the professionalism of Monique, who was really dedicated in solving the situation. Even if the mediation did not end in what I expected, I had a lot more than proposed, and I can leave relieved of the situation. Many thanks to Monique and her secretary, who was really polite and welcoming. Best regards, Wish you the best for the future. PS: I do really think there is nothing to improve.
Professional and result-oriented. We had a mediation session with Monique being the mediator. In no time she managed to bring parties together working towards a solution.
Really great team mediation, which the whole team found very useful and worthwhile!
Very friendly and committed.
During the mediation process, I gained a clear understanding of the miscommunication that had led to the problem. The process clarified everybody's expectations, culminating in specific, actionable agreements.
My experience of your firm is very positive! I received expert and highly professional assistance.
A highly effective, driven, and determined approach. Intuitive and delivers on expectations. They understand what you're going through, and I was particularly impressed by their unhurried, patient approach.
A committed, professional, and tenacious team with a can-do attitude. Skilled legal assistance is one thing, but the high degree of empathy and commitment I experienced was like an emotional safety net. This was exactly what I needed during a difficult period in my life.
Expert help, with quick results. I was really impressed with their professionalism and the advice given, which helped resolve things fast. I would definitely use SPEE advocaten & mediation again, should the need arise.
Good, solid help, unambiguous and transparent communication, clear and to the point. Practical advice.
Mutual trust and respect. Dialogue-based approach to the issue, with expert advice. It all made sense and felt doable.
Expert, committed, and focused on the objective. Unfortunately, a divorce meant I had to use the services of a law firm. Having had very positive experiences of SPEE advocaten & mediation in the past, when dealing with contracts and purchases, I turned to them on this occasion. Of course a divorce is not the same thing as a contract, which is why I had a chat with them first, to decide whether they offered the personal touch I needed, and the right approach. Based on this, I entrusted this case to SPEE advocaten & mediation. During the process, I found that they were not only professional, but also prioritized my feelings and personal interests. Of course I would rather not need a law firm in the first place. But I was very impressed with the interactive process, their understanding of the specifics, and their human touch.
I’m happy, they are patient and meticulous. Definitely recommend this very professional firm.
Thank you for representing my interests. I received excellent support and was satisfied on all fronts!
They provided great assistance and explained everything clearly.
I was impressed with my reception as soon as I arrived. It put me instantly at ease. The entire mediation process gave me confidence that I was in good hands. The honesty, candour, and neutrality were spot on. I can’t fault them!
Meticulous, knowledgeable, and to the point. A very good, discerning law firm.
We're so pleased to have found Ms Boersma and your firm as a ‘partner’ in legal matters.
Following a frustrating turn of events in my employment situation, Ms Spee provided instant help. She wasted no time getting to grips with the problem. Plus, she was always happy to answer my questions and proactively supported me, giving me reassurance in what was a very unsettling situation.
When Manon mentioned timelines, she always stuck to them! She made the effort to really get to the bottom of things, and had my best interests in mind. It was great working with her.
Good, fast, and professional service.
Meticulous, very committed, to the point, true experts in their field, with a friendly but not overfamiliar human touch. In short: excellent.

Our dealings with them were always friendly, and the advice was appropriate and to the point. I can't fault them!
We’ve used the services of SPEE advocaten several times, for issues in various areas of law. Each time, they ‘helped’ or advised us quickly, appropriately, and to a high standard. With clients, whey strike the perfect balance between informal and professional.
SPEE advocaten has been supporting us in various matters for 10 years. We've had SPEE oversee and prepare personnel-related cases for several of our organizations. They've given us feedback on the staff manuals we use, and helped improve them. Also, SPEE assisted us with the switch from outsourced to in-house payroll administration, and took care of all the legalities. SPEE also reviewed the associated employment contracts. They have also helped us reach settlement agreements as and when the need has arisen in our organization, seeking the best possible solution for the employee and for our organization.
