Dr. Yvonne Waterman
European Asbestos Forum Foundation
Dr. Yvonne Waterman (Waterman Legal Consultancy) specialises in (comparative) liability law relating to occupational accidents and diseases, in which she received a Ph.D. from Erasmus University Rotterdam.
Her particular interest in asbestos led her to found the European Asbestos Forum Foundation in the Netherlands. The Foundation strives to increase awareness, knowledge and networks across borders and professional sectors in order to prevent future asbestos victims, improve safety and eventually lead to internationally common asbestos legislation (‘level playing field’). ‘Sharing makes us stronger’ is its motto and one in which she thoroughly believes.
Yvonne also teaches liability classes to lawyers, is editor of and contributor to various legal journals and enjoys being a jurist in such a worthwhile and exciting field of law.
