Loïc Timmermans is part of the Employment & Benefits Practice Group.
Loïc is an international lawyer passionated about employment law since his first year of University. Since he started his career at the Brussels Bar, his passion evolved to solving (tricky) problems based on his knowledge of the law and creative thinking.
He provides strategic advice to multinational and domestic companies in sectors such as technology, transport, energy, chemicals, hotels, and public administration. Although his work covers all aspects of employment law, including wage and working time laws, wrongful termination, closure and transfer of undertaking, and collective dismissal, he has specific experience in workplace harassment, discrimination and well-being at work.
Loïc authored a book on burn-out at the workplace and regularly publishes in employment law reviews.
As a former high-level athlete, Loïc is committed to excellence and sees every challenge as a golden opportunity.
