I have extensive experience in dispute resolution in various fields of business law such as post-acquisition disputes, company disputes, business intermediaries, construction and insurance matters, professional liability of auditors. I practice litigation, arbitration (both as counsel and as arbitrator) and mediation in domestic and cross-border disputes. I handled arbitrations under the ICC, Cepani, Vienna, NAI, DIS rules and ad hoc arbitrations.

I joined contrast in 2009. I started at the Antwerp bar (1977-1980). I joined Braun Claeys Evrard Sorel in 1980, where I became a partner in 1984. This law firm merged in 1990 into Loeff Claeys Verbeke. In 2001 I became a partner at Allen & Overy LLP.

I hold a Masters degree in law from the University of Leuven (KULeuven) (1976) and an MBA from the University of Antwerp (UFSIA) (1979).

I have an extensive publication record in my practice areas. I am a member of the editorial board of TMD, the Dutch-Flemish Journal for Mediation and Conflict Management, and I am a member of the editorial board of b-Arbitra, the scientific arbitration journal launched by Cepani in 2013.

I lectured at the University of Antwerp on negotiation and mediation and at the Antwerp Bar on mediation. I am a member of the board of directors of Cepani.

I am a member of the Antwerp bar and of the Brussels bar. I handle files in Dutch, English, German and French.

Department head Luc Demeyere of contrast acts in both litigation and arbitration proceedings. Clients note that he is an experienced litigator who does an excellent job.

Also on a strategic level, their advice is extremely useful.’ Happy to be highly recommended in all of our practice areas, and as a Belgian Top Tier Firm in Competition Law. Especially proud of Herlinde Burez as a ‘next generation partner’ in competition law and Anouk Focquet, who leads our Privacy and Data Protection practice, as a ‘rising star’. Congratulations to both lawyers and the team! Read more here
