Ben Schaumont, Author at De Groote De Man

Atty Ben Schaumont graduated with distinction as Master in Law from the University of Ghent in 2018. During his studies, the intriguing organisation of companies and economic life inspired Ben to specialise in corporate law. Before his law studies he first earned a professional Bachelor in Business Management – Legal Practice at the Artevelde University College.

Since 2018 he has been a member of the Ghent Bar and, as a trainee lawyer, he forms part of the Corporate Law team at De Groote – De Man.

“De Groote – De Man is one of the only firms that has the true entrepreneurial spirit. The firm’s appeal lies in its passion not only to provide top-quality service, but also its openness to innovative solutions for doing so.”

Along with the legal profession he attaches great importance to healthy living, and likes to engage in physically challenging sports like squash and jujitsu.
