The Campine acts as a hub between the Benelux and Germany. The E313 and E34, the Albert Canal, the Iron Rhine and the proximity of the port of Antwerp are important assets which stimulate entrepreneurship and provide creative and innovative impulses.

Schuermans advocaten has its roots in the Campine. Carried by the Campine dynamics, the firm not only has become an established reference in the area, but also is recognized both nationally and internationally, in several specific practice areas.

We highly value the ideals of the Campine:

entrepreneurship, labour and persistence. Our over 90-year history guarantees this.
