“Mobility studies and environmental impact reports, company law and fiscal issues, contracts and contacts with international retailers, and contracts for the Uplace BMC triathlon team – they’re all part of my job at Uplace. Even though the work is really tough, we do have lots of laughs, mainly about ourselves, thanks to all the ‘noplaces’ and so-called Uplace officials. I guess by now, my colleagues have realised that despite the dryness of their work, it’s possible for lawyers to have a good sense of humour.”
Matthias read law at the University of Leuven and at Duke University in North Carolina (Erasmus). A member of the Brussels bar, he worked for various law firms including Loyens & Loeff. In 2012, he joined the Uplace team as a legal advisor. He doesn’t hide the fact that he’s a huge fan of Anderlecht, despite his employer’s support for Club Brugge!
