Laura van der Meulen joined our Spatial Planning and Environment team in 2013. She litigates and advises in the area of environmental management law. Laura represents the Dutch national government, provinces, municipalities, water boards, COA (Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers) and commercial (real estate) parties in the preparation and defence of spatial decisions for numerous extensive developments. From urban and area developments to infrastructural projects, and from dyke reinforcements to the environmental safeguarding of events, Laura makes every effort to ensure that a project is concluded successfully. Recent projects she has worked on include the Zalmhaventoren in Rotterdam and the Rijnsburgerblok in Leiden, the RijnlandRoute, the Maastricht-Hasselt tram and the reinforcement of the Markermeer dykes.
Laura received her master’s degree in Dutch Law from the University of Groningen. She also studied for a number of months in Florence.
