About us

Let’s talk law. Let’s talk Laurius.

Laurius is a firm with a rich history and an impressive track record. It was founded in 2006 by Dirk Wellens and Bert Luyten, out of a passion for the law, for a professional clientele. After two years, the firm moved into the Antwerp “Werf and Vlasnatie” offices, and in 2011 a second office opened in Brussels. Growth of which we are proud, but rather than sketching our history, we prefer to look forward.

Future-oriented and dedicated, that is how we make an everyday difference for our clients. With inimitable lawyers who – case by case – apply legal techniques in their own, refreshing way. Unparalleled. Unmatched.


Antwerp & Brussels based, with a strong international network.

Laurius lawyers are internationally acknowledged for their know-how, pragmatism and highly committed, client-oriented approach. Thanks to our constant striving for quality, we have grown into a benchmark for commercial transactions, M&A, private equity, employment law, dispute resolution, litigation and real estate. In Antwerp and Brussels, but also far beyond. Our rankings in Chambers and The Legal 500 are the best proof of this.


Committed & client oriented

The partnerships with our clients are intensive, and we like it that way. From proactive advice to permanent follow-up. Our lawyers work actively in front of, behind and alongside each client, with a very good knowledge of their unique business and sector. So we create a confidential framework in which companies can grow and thrive in all comfort.

Efficiency. What else?

Laurius is an agile office with an efficient, solution-oriented mindset. Whether analysing, advising, mediating or litigating: our lawyers work pragmatically, change gear quickly and handle every case with flair. You will notice this in our versatile approach to cases and clear, to-the-point advice.

Network of knowhow

Networking is anchored in the Laurius DNA. In recent years, we have surrounded ourselves with specialists and firms at home and abroad. Each with their own expertise, but with the same Laurius quality level. For each case, either our lawyers offer an in-house solution or we tap into our network. Everything so that your case is solved quickly and effectively.
