Francis ten Broeke – Lawyer
Francis is a specialist in employment law. She gives legal advice and conducts litigation on a wide range of employment law issues, such as terms & conditions of employment, reorganisations, individual and collective dismissal, summary dismissal, occupational disability and reintegration and non-competition clauses.
She also deals with privacy law issues. These include cases that have both an employment law and a privacy law aspect, such as control and supervision in the workplace and monitoring of employees. But she also has knowledge of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the processing of personal data, accountability under the GDPR and (reporting) data breaches.
Francis mainly represents employers. She provides them with legal advice and conducts litigation for both SMEs and large national and international companies. Francis also regularly acts on behalf of employees.
In all cases, Francis opts for a practical and clear approach. She is approachable, accessible and her advice is to the point and clear. She always seeks to analyse the question: what does her client want to achieve? This means that a practical approach may at times be preferable to a substantive legal solution.

During her studies, Francis worked at a legal consultancy for more than four years, where she gave advice to entrepreneurs on various legal matters. She also studied at the University of Stellenbosch in South Africa for six months.
