About Us

Founders

Chairman & Co-Founder

Ever since Younes saw his mother watching courtroom dramas, he knew what he was going to become later: a lawyer. And he has managed to do so in the meantime. He has found his place in a major international law firm, where he is involved in international deals and IPO's. He also publishes regularly on an array of legal topics. Younes was the first in his family to attend university and has always been supported and motivated by his environment. "I realize that this is an incredible strength. As a token of my appreciation, I try to distinguish myself in each aspect of life. Not only professionally and academically, but also socially - through (international) volunteering – and athletically – I am a kickboxer – I always want to give the best of myself.

Younes Sebbarh

Gilles had the urge to be successful from an early age. That premise has remained, but what he means by that has changed drastically over the years. Initially, the focus was on his career. He now finds his daily intellectual challenge as a tax lawyer in an international law firm. Over the years - and especially during his student years - he has come to realize that there is more to it than just building a career. In order to get the most out of life, he is committed to as many activities as possible. Gilles is the author of several legal contributions, does kickboxing and sees "Belgian Lawyers for Africa - It's Legal to Care" as the logical extension of his previous voluntary work in Africa.

Camille Degrave

Webdesign & Co-Founder

Camille grew up in the small Limburg town of Hamont-Achel. Upon completion of his legal studies, he started working as a lawyer in Brussels in 2018. In his early student days, Camille met the co-founders after which the three of them built up an exceptional friendship. Not only career wise, but also on a social level and in terms of sport, they challenge each other on a daily basis to bring out the best in themselves.

 

Camille already visited Africa as a volunteer in an orphanage, where he saw the tragic situation with his own eyes. This eye-opener made it painfully clear that so many people still need help every day. With "Belgian Lawyers for Africa - It's Legal to Care" Camille hopes to generate an impact on a larger scale.
