Esther Plompen

Esther (1972) started her career as a private practitioner with a particular focus on employment and corporate law, advising on the legal and tactical aspects of large reorganisations, start-ups and mergers & acquisitions and at all times carefully considering the interests of the many different stakeholders in such processes.

Esther’s experience gained through a local communal services program to reconcile neighbourhood conflicts further affirmed her personal conviction that to sustainably resolve a conflict between parties, it is best if the parties design a solution themselves, together. The chances of achieving such a solution/positive result are largely enhanced through mediation. As a registered mediator with Mediation Federation Netherlands (MfN), she now is fully devoted to helping parties to sustainably resolve conflicts via an analytical and to-the-point approach, with a keen eye to the interests and views of all parties involved. (For conflicts in which the parties involved seek a decision by a third party, through arbitration or other alternative conflict resolution, Esther is also trained to set up that process, lead the parties through it and provide for all the support required).
