Eliza Akopova

Senior Associate Employment Law

Prior to joining Vestius, Eliza gained more than eight years of experience and knowledge at a full-service medium-sized law firm. Eliza is an enterprising lawyer and works with precision and determination. Eliza has specialized in (international) employment law, but – by working closely with the corporate law department – has learned to look at cases from different perspectives. She is therefore creative in devising and implementing practical solutions for her (international) clients. Eliza also has extensive litigation experience. During her training as a lawyer, for example, Eliza did an outdoor internship at the court. As a result, she knows the tricks of the trade to convince the judge that her client is right. Eliza mainly assists (international) employers. She is equally happy to look after the interests of individual employees.
