Alexander Vandenbergen - Lydian

Within: Employment

Lydian's 'very responsive' team is singled out for its 'very dynamic spirit and client-focused approach'. Jan Hofkens is 'a great employment lawyer'; he jointly heads the practice with the 'outstanding' Alexander Vandenbergen, who is the key name for pensions work. In a major highlight, the team assisted the Flemish Department of Integration with a prominent transition project, which involved the collective dismissal of over 180 employees.
