Together with the team, I have defended a number of high profile cases in international employment law issues related to dismissal and contractual claims of companies and international mobile employees. I have 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, I have been working extensively on projects involving a pragmatic approach in creating a flexible workspace in respect of working time, home working, salary and benefits structuring as well in respect of non-discrimination, diversity and equal treatment.
A large part of the clients I assist are European or globally based companies, but I also act for several local Belgian companies and individuals as well. My clients are active in a range of sectors such as manufacturing, pharmaceutical, banking, media and service areas.
I am a member of the European Employment Lawyers Association and a regular contributor and editor or a Kluwer Legal Journal on international employment, social security and tax subjects.
I am ranked as "Next generation lawyer" in the "Legal 500" and as "Associate to watch" in the "Chambers & Partners" legal guides and for employment law in Belgium.
I regularly speak at internal and external seminars on employment and social security law issues.
My mother tongue is Dutch and I am fluent in French and English.
