Paul MUYLAERT has always been interested in insurance and liability law and didn’t have to think twice about specializing in liability law in general with a strong emphasis on the healthcare sector (medical liability, personal injury assessment, medical accidents, workplace accidents, etc.), along with insurance law, construction law and road traffic law.

He has extensive experience in international insurance law and oversaw the trial that followed the fire in the Mont Blanc Tunnel in 1999. Paul Muylaert is one of the founders of Insuralex, an international network of insurance law specialists of which the law firm is the Belgian member.

His well-established professional and human qualities and the fact that he makes a point of ensuring that major lawsuits end in settlements whenever possible have made Paul Muylaert the go-to lawyer for many insurance companies and hospitals across Belgium.

Driven by a real commitment to teaching, Paul Muylaert is a part-time lecturer at the Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc academic hospital; he lectures on all legal aspects as part of the institution’s Master’s degree in immuno-haematology and transfusion. In addition, he regularly gives lectures on medical liability issues.
