I stand for your cause

Tessa Sipkema


When Tessa is not working, there is a very good chance you will find her on the hockey field. She plays for the Feijenoord hockey club first ladies team and has a busy training and competition programme. Tessa is full of energy and is always ready for one last effort. Not only does this produce good results on the hockey field, but it also comes in handy in her work. When Tessa handles your brief, you know she’s going to stand for your cause.

Taking a look at her study career, it is obvious to see that she does not like to sit still. She completed the first part of her study (Employment Law) at the University of Amsterdam. She completed her second Masters degree (Health Law) at Erasmus University Rotterdam. In addition, Tessa followed Summer School in European Private Law at the University of Salzburg. Since February 2020, Tessa has been a lawyer at De Haij & Van der Wende and focuses on general civil business law, with an emphasis on Employment Law and Business Law.

In addition to her work as a lawyer, she is engaged in various side activities. Together with her colleague, Dennis Oud, Tessa is affiliated with Duurzaam Capelle, where she and other companies are the driving force behind circular entrepreneurship within the Capelle region. Tessa also sits on the disciplinary committee of Hockey Club Feijenoord.
