Caroline Mehlem

Caroline is a lawyer who thinks in terms of solutions and whose main strength is her personal and resolute approach. Her commitment, knowledge and clarity create much confidence among her clients and colleagues. Caroline is French, but also has German, Spanish and English roots. And she indeed speaks five languages, which is of course an added bonus.

Education and career

Caroline studied Dutch law at Leiden University, where she majored in International Law. She joined De Clercq as a lawyer in 2003, where she practices labour law in the broadest sense. Her multilingual background and international interests mean that Caroline regularly enjoys advising international clients. She has also specialised in education law and public service law, while the mediation training that Caroline has completed is a further excellent advantage in her practice.

Caroline’s daily practice

‘In my work as a lawyer, I have gained extensive experience in representing employers and employees in all facets of labour law. I can assist you in individual dismissal processes, drafting contracts, as well as complex reorganisations and corporate acquisitions. As the regular lawyer for various companies, I find it important to get to know my clients well. More often than not, this gives rise to a long-term, productive relationship. I am particularly interested in labour law in education and the public service, and also regard myself as an expert in the area of cross-border employment.’
