In property law, she works for different players in the real estate market, covering all civil law aspects, and more in particular issues related to commercial lease, construction, co-ownership, buying and selling of property and easements. Since 2005, she has been appointed as a deputy judge in Brussels (Etterbeek), the jurisdiction, competent for, among others, all matters related to lease agreements and co-ownership. Because of her involvement in the real estate part of due diligence procedures, she gained particular knowledge on soil pollution.

She acts for principals as well as agents; franchisors as well as franchisees. A lot of her work relates to the Belgian Act of 1961 on unilateral termination of exclusive and quasi-unilateral distribution agreements concluded for an indefinite term, since 2014 incorporated in the Code on Economic law, book X, title 3.
