I joined contrast in 2015 and I am a senior associate since 2021. I have extensive experience in a broad range of commercial, competition and privacy and data protection law matters, with a focus on distribution law. My experience includes several in-house assignments at clients of contrast.

I graduated with a master’s degree in Law from the University of Ghent and obtained an LL.M. in International Competition Law & Policy from the University of Glasgow.

I contributed as a co-author to the book ‘Gegevensbescherming in de praktijk’ (‘Data protection in practice’), published by Intersentia in 2019. I frequently speak at in-house seminars and trainings.

I am a member of the Brussels bar. I speak Dutch, English and French.

"Those present at the meeting were full of praise for Laurence because she was so competent and to the point, practical and clear."
