Rudy Van Turnhout


Rudy Van Turnhout launched his career with GSJ advocaten in the year 2007. Since then, he has specialised in liability law, insurance law, criminal law and health law. Within these particularly challenging areas of legal practice, he has assisted public authorities, businesses and private clients with various types of cases.

Driven by his special interest in personal injury issues, in 2009 Rudy completed a postgraduate course in physical injury assessment at the Catholic University of Leuven, and in 2013 he decided to acquire even more in-depth knowledge of health law as a seconded staff member responsible for legal affairs at the Antwerp-based hospital and residential care group GZA. He also devotes much of his time and energy to industrial accident cases. In addition, in 2014-2015 he lectured at Syntra, where he gave lessons in industrial accident insurance in the course on insurance intermediaries.

Mr Van Turnhout is the author of several academic papers and articles in the field of liability and insurance law and he is a regular speaker at seminars organised by Escala and Confocus, among others.

As former secretary and chairman and currently vice-chairman of the Kempische Verzekeringskring, Rudy has built up an enviable reputation for his thorough knowledge of current practice in the insurance industry. In addition, he has experience of corporate management.

Rudy is the holder of a special training certificate in cassation proceedings in criminal cases and can therefore handle criminal cases before the Court of Cassation.
