Practice Description

Rudi Desmet and his team assist their clients in legal issues related to HRM and staffing. The HR Team is specialised in employment law, social security law, immigration and international employment, TUPE, additional pensions and privacy protection.


He has considerable experience in advising, litigation and negotiation (including collective negotiations during a restructuring with collective redundancy) for both national and international clients.


Astrea is an independent, dynamic law firm with 13 partners and more than 40 specialist and experienced lawyers, spread between offices in Antwerp and Brussels. The firm was established in 2006 by a handful of experienced lawyers who had gained a wealth of experience in various firms, and has steadily been expanded with experienced specialists and young talent. We offer high-quality legal services to Belgian and international businesses, ranging from promising start-ups and growth companies to long-established corporations (including more than fifteen Fortune 500 companies). We also do regular work for government departments and public bodies in Belgium.


With our exhaustive specialisations and strong capabilities in virtually every area of law with which companies may find themselves confronted, we are in a position to offer our clients a comprehensive approach. After all, legal problems are hardly ever limited to a single legal field; and the law is becoming increasingly complex. Based on your particular issues, Astrea will put together the right team of specialist lawyers, who will then work pragmatically to formulate the most efficient solution.


Availability, speed and a proactive approach are our watchwords. We pride ourselves that the service we offer is not only the highest quality service, but also the most cost-effective, and that it is provided within the context of strong client relationships.


And, in case you were wondering: Astrea is the daughter of Zeus and Themis. In Greek mythology, she represents justice and fairness; values which, in our opinion, all lawyers should hold dear
