About Nadine Groeneveld-Tijssens

Nadine Groeneveld-Tijssens is a lawyer admitted to practise before the Dutch Supreme Court. Her practice spans a wide range of cases, including contract and liability law, expropriation law, transport law and procedural law. Also litigating before the District Court and the Court of Appeal, she frequently handles class action suits or test cases.

Civil procedural law is where Nadine feels most at home. This stems not only from her expertise and experience as a Supreme Court lawyer, but also from her doctoral research into declaratory judgments. After her doctoral thesis was published, in 2015, Nadine stayed affiliated with Tilburg University through a fellowship. She presents guest lectures on Advanced Civil Procedural Law for the master's syllabus and regularly teaches courses to judges, justices and higher education institutes on topics deriving from procedural law, such as the heads of claim, the operative part of the judgment, res judicata and appeals.

Nadine regularly authors articles on topics relating to procedural law and substantive law. For example, she is the author of a monograph about the special custody agreement as part of the leading Monografieën BW series and a co-author of the Sdu Commentaar Internationaal Privaatrecht (Boek 10 BW).
