In 2008, Jean-Philippe graduated his Master’s degree in Law with honours from the University of Antwerp (UA). That same year, he began his career as a lawyer at Ardent.
With a special interest in Individual and Collective Labour Law from the start, over the years he has gained considerable experience in Labour Law, through negotiations with trade unions, social inspections, challenging law suits, provision of advice and suchlike. He assists employers and employees, and represents them at the Labour Court. Jean-Philippe is also active in the area of Family Law.
As well as a lawyer, Jean-Philippe is a huge sports fan. He continues to be challenged and fascinated by striving together for a goal, in a team in which dedication, effort and the smallest details can mean the difference between winning and losing. He uses this mindset in his professional career, and tries to pass it on to the younger generation, as a youth coach for a local football club.
