Coen Verberne

Coen works at Holla since 1995 and has been a partner since 2004. He has extensive experience in the field of health law. Coen is known as the expert in health care. He worked as an IC nurse at a hospital and as an ambulance paramedic for eighteen years before becoming a lawyer, which explains why he can manoeuvre so easily between the medical and legal worlds.

Coen advises, among others, caregivers, and institutions on the various aspects of health care legislation and assists them in legal proceedings. This mainly concerns collaborations and quality of care, for example in disciplinary cases and proceedings involving dysfunctional caregivers. Coen has a ‘healthy dose’ of willfulness, which makes him determined to see his clients win their case in court and to make a real difference to them. Coen also works as a mediator and the skills and knowledge that he gains in this capacity help him manoeuvre complex collaborative relationships.

Besides his work as a lawyer, Coen is the chairman of the regional review committee for euthanasia (RTE) in the regions Overijssel, Gelderland, Utrecht, and Flevoland. His activities in this function seamlessly connect with his work in health law.
