Tel : +32(0)2 894 45 80
Catherine Jimenez has nearly ten years of professional experience in public and administrative law. She began her career as a civil servant, first working as in-house government counsel and then taking a post as chief legal officer for two municipalities, the first in the Brussels region and the second in Wallonia. There, Catherine Jimenez practiced in all areas of the administrative law field, favouring a pragmatic approach based on providing sound advice and searching for legal solutions to concrete legal issues faced by local governments in fulfilling their public service obligations.
This professional experience also provided her with the occasion to gain knowledge about the particularities of education law, which she taught during three years in vocational higher education programmes for social advancement.
With a Master’s degree in public and administrative law and a Bachelor’s degree in criminology, coupled with sound practical experience working in administrative law, Catherine Jimenez decided to take the next step in her career. In January 2017, she joined the public and administrative law team, working alongside Michel Kaiser, Emmanuel Gourdin, and Marc Verdussen for her internship to become legal counsel at the Brussels Bar. Catherine Jimenez’s objective in this new challenge is to continue expanding her theoretical and concrete mastery of administrative law and defend the interests of the firm’s clients with humanism and determination.
