Louis is a Senior Associate on the Commercial team in Brussels.

He advises domestic and international clients from the retail and e-commerce sectors on their advertising campaigns, compliant product regulation towards consumers and national authorities, and unfair competition and trade practices matters. He regularly assists these clients on the same matters before domestic courts and regulatory bodies.

His work also includes the drafting of operational agreements (online and offline), including distribution, terms and conditions, commercial and office leases.

Between March and July 2019, he worked on assignment in Osborne Clarke's New York office, where he provided support and assistance to US clients seeking to expand their business overseas and more particularly in Belgium and the Benelux.

Within the office, Louis is deeply involved with offering digital solutions and tools for clients in order to help them in their decarbonisation process. He is also an active stakeholder in our Diversity and Inclusion initiatives.
