Luuk joined LXA Lawyers in 2020 and practices in all areas of administrative law.

In 2020 he graduated from Tilburg University for the master's degree in Law with specializations in administrative law and criminal law. He wrote his master thesis on scarce permits granted for an indefinite period of time.

Luuk regularly advises and litigates on cases in which enforcement action is taken by the government; for example, enforcement by means of an administrative fine, an order under penalty, an order under administrative coercion, a demand for compliance or a warning/stoppage of work. His knowledge of both criminal and administrative law comes in handy here.

His knowledge of enforcement by certification bodies also deserves special attention. Luuk regularly assists companies whose certificates are (un)conditionally suspended or revoked.
