Working across six offices nationwide, Claeys & Engels' boutique employment law practice enjoys a stellar reputation among its formidable roster of blue-chip domestic and international clients. Best known for its work in the finance, food, transport, and manufacturing sectors, public sector mandates are, increasingly, a core focus for the group. The large team is jointly led by two partners: chairman Chris Engels, an expert in dismissal and European labour law; and Olivier Wouters, a specialist in reorganisations and collective bargaining who also serves as the firm’s managing partner. Inger Verhelst is recommended for her capabilities in individual and collective labour law issues, including discrimination cases, and often appears before the labour courts and European Court of Justice.

Many thanks to our clients and peers for their continuous support!
