Fieldfisher promotes Senior Associate Tim Perdieus to Of Counsel




Fieldfisher announces today the promotion of Tim Perdieus to Of Counsel, effective from 1 May 2021. Tim Perdieus, based in the Brussels office, joined the firm in 2011.
Admitted to the Brussels Bar, Tim is part of Fieldfisher's HR-Law department, encompassing Employment, social security and immigration law at the Brussels office. He advises Belgian and international companies and individuals on all aspects of individual and collective employment law, both contentious and non-contentious, and on national and international social security matters.

Together with the team, Tim has defended a number of high profile cases in international employment law issues related to dismissal and contractual claims of companies and international mobile employees. He has also acted as advisor on the employment law aspects related to a number of major restructuring operations, involving transfers and collective lay-offs of personnel. On a compliance side, he has been working extensively on projects involving a pragmatic approach in creating a flexible workspace in respect of working time, home working, salary and benefit structuring as well in respect of non-discrimination, diversity and equal treatment.

A large part of the clients he assists are European or globally based companies, but he also acts for several local Belgian companies.

He is a regular contributor and editor of a Kluwer Legal Journal on international employment, social security and tax subjects.

Tim has been ranked for years in renowned directories such as Chambers (as an Associate to Watch) and the Legal 500 (as a Rising Star) and praised by clients as "talented and responsive" and "a good technical lawyer and also very responsive and valuable in the team".

Stefan Nerinckx, Head of the Employment practice said: "I am extremely pleased to see Tim raising to the position of Of Counsel. Tim has been accompanying and guiding our clients for more than 10 years: he understands their needs and requirements and he has their trust. This well-deserved promotion is testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment that Tim has put in over the past years".

Jean-François Germain, Joint Managing Partner, added: "This promotion reflects the growth and development of the firm and its willingness to further invest in young talent. Tim's range of skills and expertise will enhance and strengthen the services offered by the firm in the employment area and will consolidate the practice's position, as Tim's reputation is outstanding on the market".
