Angela Melsen

After completing my bachelor’s degree in IT law, I started following the practice-oriented Togamaster (specialization in corporate law and intellectual property law) at the University of Groningen. I completed this master’s degree cum laude in 2020.

During my studies I did an internship at the Public Prosecution Service in Groningen, the court in Zwolle and three law firms, including Dorhout Advocaten. I was also a member of various committees at the Groningen Legal Faculty Association and as Treasurer for External Affairs I held a board position at the Groningsche Cricket and Hockey Club, where I could get a taste of entrepreneurship.

Through my practical experiences I have learned that it is not only important to answer the legal question, but that one has to look at the bigger picture. With a creative approach I like to look for suitable and structural solutions. Just like in sports, I am also a team player in my work: I like to work together in a down-to-earth way with both clients and colleagues.

I have been working at Dorhout Advocaten as a lawyer in general civil practice since mid-2020.
