Arianke Smolders, LL.M. graduated from the University of Ghent in 2014, after which she started her traineeship at the Dendermonde bar. In 2015, she made the switch to the Brussels bar where she worked for 4 years at Vanden Eynde Legal. There, she came into extensive contact with various areas of law and discovered a preference for corporate law.

Arianke is fascinated by the business world and the legal issues that entrepreneurs have to deal with. Because she wanted to expand her expertise in this field even further, she obtained the extra Master’s Degree in Company Law at the KU Leuven in 2020, which she combined with her full-time job.

In 2019, Arianke decided to leave Brussels to fully focus on corporate law at our firm. Within our Corporate Law team, she assists clients with legal advice, drafting contracts and litigation before the courts.

In addition to the legal profession, Arianke likes to spend time with her friends and family, with whom she enjoys exploring the world, doing sports or discovering new restaurants.
