Who we are
Founded in 2012 by lawyers renowned in their areas of expertise, Younity is a firm with a human touch practising law with due regard to strong values such as respect, transparency, trust, solidarity and conviviality.
Such values that were fundamental at the time Younity was created, still maintain their relevancy in our daily contacts with clients:
- Entrusted partner: our clients should be able to rely on a team that is both proactive and responsive.
- Respect for the client’s unique situation : like any individual is unique, we treat any client with the same regards by surrounding the client with a team of dedicated experts who are listening to the client’s needs.
- Transparency in client contacts : we stimulate a clear communication with the client, informal if appropriate.
- Personal and creative service : a diversity in expertise, culture and specializations enables us to build a hightrusted relationship with our clients, leading to in tailor-made solutions.
But first and foremost Younity is a firm where any individual is stimulated to take ownership in the matters dealt with. We strongly encourage team work which we believe is fundamental to provide quality answers to complex questions. Team work is sharing expertise, cultures and know-how. Team work implies delegating work whilst encouraging personal initiative and input.
Younity’s key to success is team work, internally in the first place but also together with our clients.
Our practice areas
More than ever Human Resources is a core business of enterprises. Due to its complexity and in view of a society permanently evolving, it is not amenable to a broad-brush approach. This is even the more true when HR interferes with issues concerning new technologies, optimisation of salary packages and the specific nature of employers for example in the public sector. Or when looking at the variety in occupational pension plans, invalidity schemes or medical cost plans.
In these areas you need a team of dedicated experts offering you a qualitative, pragmatic and efficient service. Our expertise is the result of many years of enthusiastic investment alongside our clients. Our experience is further enhanced with college and university teaching positions, conferences and trainings we offer as well as numerous reference works and articles that we publish.
It is a real pleasure to work with Jean-Philippe. He has a very pragmatic approach of labour law topics and issues, and is pedagogical in his explanations.His results oriented approach is helpful for building together the solutions we need. Moreover, you can count on him to respond quickly and accurately in urgent situations, which is key in my HR life. Thank you Jean-Philippe!Fabienne Hanssens - Human Resources Director AbbVie
I work with Younity for several years now. As a former lawyer, I find it very important to have a sparring partner for a second opinion when I have a difficult legal issue in the company. My lawyer within Younity knows that as a HR Director I need a pragmatic and practical solution for my legal problems and not a theoretical advice of too many pages. A simple ‘yes or no’ is sometimes much more important. I can really recommend Younity for their professionalism and reactivity.Tiny Coppens - HR Director Confiserie Leonidas
Sébastien Roger is a highly knowledgeable and experienced attorney in Labor Law, focused, hard worker and who always keeps his client’s best interests in mind.

I strongly endorse and recommend him.Sandra Petrovic - Freelance Interim HR Manager/HR Consultant
In a culture where change is accelerating and bringing more complexity every day, we work together with you to facilitate your work. Our main priority is getting to know you to understand your needs and expectations. Because being a legal expert means nothing without an understanding of the underlying issues. Because legal advice is worthless unless it helps you to take the right decision at the right time. We therefore believe that for us to suggest pragmatic solutions, it is our job also to know yours.
