Lucie Lambrecht is the founder and managing partner of Lambrecht Law Office. She has been practising as a lawyer at the Brussels Bar since she obtained her law degree from the University of Leuven (KUL, 1986) and her master’s degree in law from the University of London (LLM, 1987).
Before she set up her own legal practice, Lucie worked at the banking and corporate practices of Linklaters’ and Allen & Overy’s Brussels offices for more than 20 years; she also worked as a lawyer in London for a couple of years. However, art law has always been Lucie’s main area of interest and she has further developed this since her time in London.
Lucie has been an independent adviser for the Flemish government for many years and was thus involved in the preparation of a number of pieces of important legislation in cultural property matters.
She has been a speaker at various legal seminars and has published diverse articles in specialist legal periodicals in her different areas of expertise.
She is a member of several professional associations and groups, including Collections Legal, the Institute of Art and Law, Professional Advisers to the Art Market, the Art Law Foundation and the Belgian Copyright Association.
Lucie has been a substitute judge at the Court of Appeal of Brussels since 2014. She was appointed as an arbitrator in the original arbitration pool of the Court of Arbitration for Art in January 2020.
