Christine Visser is partner at our firm and specialises in administrative and environmental law. She started working as an attorney at law in the field of administrative law in 2004, and has specialised since in environmental law and nature conservation.
Christine specialises in issues related to zoning plans and permit procedures for infrastructure projects, and business and residential housing developments. She is also inspired by the complexities of environmental and nature conservation law. At Ten Holter Noordam advocaten, Christine is part of the Building Industry market area where she applies her broad knowledge and experience of environmental law with great effect on behalf of (project) developers, housing corporations and investors who need assistance in getting complicated projects off the ground.
