I am a partner in our International HR Services group in Brussels with over 30 years' experience of advising on contentious and non-contentious issues in employment and benefits, including high profile employment litigation, boardroom advisory work, strategic change management, industrial relations, compliance and reward issues.
Clients come to me for all aspects of employment & benefits law, preferably complex, sensitive and cross-border ones, including compliance issues, works council and industrial relations matters, remuneration and benefits. Combining bespoke, in-depth yet hands-on advice and counseling with strategic insight and proper business perspective is in my view the key role of a senior and experienced partner. That is where clients need me most.
My client base ranges from start-ups, over SME's through global (top-branded) organisations including authorities, in all lines of business and industry.
I have published extensively, and I am a regular conference speaker and commentator in the consumer and trade press on legal HR issues. I am a guest and practice lecturer at KULeuven Law School. I work in Dutch, French and English.
