I am a leading expert in employment, social security and business migration matters with over 20 years' experience advising major international and domestic Belgian clients.

I have a particular expertise in individual and collective labour and employment law matters, including employment contracts, employment terminations, international mobility (international social security and business migration).

I am also experienced in advising on-compete and restrictive covenants, privacy on the work floor, employee/self-employed status, flexibility in work conditions, employment issues in the context of M&A (e.g. TUPE), collective lay off and closing of companies, social disputes and industrial actions with unions, executive compensation, assistance of companies with audits/disputes with the government and employment litigation.

I act for both European and global organisations and SMEs.

My clients are active in a range of sectors, such as media, pharmaceutical, banking, manufacturing and service areas.

I have participated in more than 150 speaking engagements (ERA, ABA, JSB, etc…) and I teach employment law at the University College Brussels.

I have written or contributed more than 120 articles and books and am a co-editor of a Legal Journal by Kluwer.

I have been repeatedly named as one of the 10 leading employment lawyers in Belgium by Legal 500 and listed by Chambers, Best Lawyers and Whos Who of business lawyers for years.

I recently joined the Legal 500 Hall of Fame, which promotes leading lawyers who have received constant praise by their clients for continued excellence.
