About Nadine Groeneveld-Tijssens

Nadine Groeneveld - Tijssens is a partner and 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. She regularly collaborates in the writing of documents in complex first-instance or appellate court cases, contributing ideas about what approach to take in proceedings.

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 academic activity. Nadine has been an endowed professor of appellate law at Tilburg University since September 2022, in which role she conducts research into appellate law and appellate procedural law and teaches Advanced civil procedural law to master's students. She teaches regular courses to judges, justices and higher education institutes on topics deriving from procedural law, such as declaratory judgments (the subject matter of her doctoral thesis), 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).
