The Proteus association of law firms was founded in 1996 and has recently celebrated its 20th year’s anniversary in Antwerp during the last weekend of May this year.

Since its start up, the association not only grew in number of members but also in perspectives and achievements. The event was hosted by two of the member law firm, namely Anteius Advocaten and DILAW, both from Antwerp, Belgium and gathered most of its members.

Following its yearly tradition, Proteus will be having its next reunion in 2017, in Sofia, Bulgaria.
