Morgane Merveille

Attorney – Partner


I am a lawyer since 2012. I started my career at Claeys & Engels (law firm specialised in human resources law), before co-founding Yelaw in 2022.

What defines me:

I am committed to establishing and maintaining a trust relationship with the clients I advise and defend.

I am passionate about employment law in general and in particular I can handle complex issues related to employees’ remuneration (optimisation of salary packages, NSSO treatment, holiday pay, etc.).

I am native from Berchem-Sainte-Agathe and currently live there with my husband and daughter, Victoire. I am involved in the development of my neighbourhood, which I am very attached to.
