Belgian law firm Laga announced today the hire of Benoît Feron as partner in the Corporate team. Feron joins from NautaDutilh Brussels where he has been a partner since 1995.

He is a top notch lawyer who will further add breadth and experience to our existing practice, especially in the Walloon, (French speaking) Brussels and French market. Continuing to strengthen our position in these markets is important for us. Benoît is a highly effective and skilled practitioner with the right skillset, market standing and collegiate approach. His hire further underpins Laga’s position as one of the leading Belgian law firms with a strong footprint in the various regions of Belgium and a broad international client base. We are very glad to have him on board.”

Benoît Feron added: “I am delighted to join Laga, which is a top firm in Belgium with an excellent reputation. It is one of the largest Belgian law firms. Their lawyers are amongst the best in their fields and we share the same client centricity and values. Laga has a thriving corporate M&A and capital markets practice with high profile clients across a range of sectors. Within Laga I found truly like-minded colleagues who have high professional ethics and a down to earth attitude. I am sincerely glad to give my clients this comfort for the future.”
