Sophie (S.D.I.M.) Stolker
Attorney at law
After completing her degree at Leiden University, Sophie entered the employment at Delissen Martens in January 2014.
Specialist area of legal practice
As a lawyer she is engaged in all aspects of employment law. Sophie usually assists and represents employers, but also employees in divergent employment-law issues, such as reorganizations and restructurings, dismissal processes and disputes on employment conditions.
What is the motivation that drives her as a lawyer?
“Making the legal opportunities and possibilities clear and comprehensible for my clients and acting as a designated and accessible point of contact for all the matters they may encounter at an employment law level.”
As a lawyer Sophie is committed. “I attach importance to good personal ties with my clients; on the whole this inures to the benefit of the legal assistance provided. I try to achieve this by giving consideration to each case, by being accessible for my clients and to keep to appointments and arrangements made.”
Sophie’s approach is solution-oriented. “Through the experience I have gained in the past years I am able to get to the heart of the problem quickly. This makes it possible to draw up a plan of action – always in consultation with my client – and to realize appropriate solutions. Wherever possible I try to find such solutions in an amicable settlement, which often produces better results, is less costly and saves time. That is not always possible, of course; in that case all effort will be aimed at achieving the best possible result for my client.”
That Sophie is very competent in that regard is evidenced by the fact that in 2018 she won the The Hague Moot Court Competition and she came second in the National Moot Court Competition.
