My name is Anne-Marie Weersink and I have been practising as a lawyer for over 35 years. I have extensive experience in corporate law with a focus on the insolvency law, which is my specialism. I advise companies that are experiencing financial problems in order to find suitable solutions. I also enjoy the challenge of drawing up a written contract for the parties that accurately records their agreements. I am regularly appointed as a liquidator by the court.
I am solution-oriented, thorough and transparent. I am a generalist among specialists because insolvency law interfaces with many areas of law. I am persistent without losing sight of the practical aspects and the human dimension.

Three questions for Anne-Marie
I have experience in advising companies in difficult situations and drawing up contracts, particularly in the construction, retail and healthcare sectors.
I briefly and concisely outline the client's legal problems and search for a solution together with the client for the optimal and most pragmatic solution.
One of my client companies experienced cashflow problems because a major debtor no longer fulfilled their obligations. Negotiations with the bank did not provide a solution. Eventually, bankruptcy was considered. The client filed for bankruptcy, which was pronounced by the court. The owner of the bankrupt company, in cooperation with the liquidator and with me, was able to make a fresh start, in the course of which employment was preserved, properties were leased again and finally an amount could be paid to the creditors. This solution proved to be satisfactory for all parties involved.
