Le nostre practice

Labor and Employment Consulting and Litigation

We are the day-to-day partner of management, HR and legal departments when it comes to every aspect of labor and employment law, including GDPR and contacts with official authorities. We also have a very strong litigation practice. Many of the lawsuits we handle relate to unfair dismissal and discrimination, harassment, compensation in lieu of notice, employees protected against dismissal, strikes, restrictive covenants and bonus and equity plans. Litigation also includes defending our clients and members of management in employment related criminal proceedings. Having both Dutch- and French-speaking specialists and offices in Flanders and Brussels, we comfortably cover the entire Belgian territory, both in terms of presence and litigation capacity.


We have extensive experience advising our clients on mergers and acquisitions. Our team’s background at major international law firms includes the HR aspects of both national and cross-border corporate transactions and restructurings. We perform due diligence processes and advise our clients on relevant HR and employment law-related issues. We identify potential non-compliance risks, and also translate these into the relevant transactional documents and recommend suitable solutions to remedy the identified issues pre- or post-closing where appropriate.

International Mobility

We often advise on how to best structure international employment, from contractual (including applicable law), social security and tax perspectives. We also provide extensive experience in other immigration matters, such as application for visa and work permits.

Mass Lay-Offs and Reorganizations

We regularly assist clients with planning and executing mass lay-offs and reorganizations in general, within or outside the context of corporate transactions. We very often are involved directly in discussions and negotiations with the workforce, employee representative bodies (such as works councils) and external unions.

Unfair Dismissal and Discrimination

Our team has extensive experience in the field of unfair dismissal and discrimination cases. Ours was the first Belgian law firm to conduct a full analysis of case law on unfair dismissal and is renowned for its expertise in this area of law. Our conclusions have received press coverage and have been the object of various seminars and articles. We also handle numerous litigations on unfair dismissal and discrimination.

Data Protection

Our team regularly assists clients with questions related to privacy at work. We help our clients comply with privacy rules, including the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
