Mr Beau Vanderstraeten graduated with distinction as Master of Laws at Ghent University in 2021.

During his studies, he focused mainly on general contract law and corporate law. To gain more insight into the practical aspects of the legal profession, he did a summer internship at a Ghent law firm.

He also has a special interest in civil procedural law. During his studies, Beau also engaged as a member of the Law Education Committee at Ghent University.

As a final part of his studies and given his special interest in the legal profession, he wrote a master’s thesis on the topic “Professional secrecy of notaries and lawyers: a comparative overview”, which was rewarded with high distinction.

In September 2021, Beau started his internship at DGDM, where he mainly focuses on handling corporate law cases of very broad scope, with a focus on contract law and M&A.

The cooperation between the different teams within DGDM, the broad knowledge base and innovative view of the legal profession attract him greatly.
