The new kid on the block in the legal services sector starts out
Marieke Van Driessche, General Manager, is the leading lady at Ask Q. Marieke was a senior associate in Quinz’ Life Sciences department and one of its rising stars.
“I was driven to look beyond the traditional paths of law in today’s fast-moving legal business world. Our clients’ needs are changing and what they need is often a true extension of their legal team. The experience gained during our work for in-house legal departments and the company culture of Quinz have been incorporated into our solutions at Ask Q”.
Olivier Van Obberghen, one of the partners at the law firm Quinz that founded Ask Q:
“Marieke’s promotion demonstrates her depth of experience and her ability to lead a team. It also reflects her professional expertise and her capacity to design innovative solutions to complex and challenging legal issues. It also shows our commitment to putting young entrepreneurs on the map”.
Pieter Wyckmans, also a partner at the law firm Quinz that founded Ask Q:
“World-leading companies already turned to Quinz to provide support to their in-house teams. With this new venture, Ask Q, we can now offer full-service solutions to the in-house teams of Quinz’ existing clients and also to new clients that will come to form part of Ask Q’s new client base”.
The Ask Q management team is coached and mentored by Dieter Honoré, as 'entrepreneur in residence'. Dieter was the founder and CEO of Legal Forces, a Belgian market leader in legal staffing, which was later sold to USG People and rebranded as USG Legal. Dieter is a renowned executive coach and start-up mentor.
“All of the ingredients for a success story are there. Several top lawyers have already joined the venture in the first months. Numerous client interviews have shown that in-house teams have an urgent need for this type of legal services. Also, the backing and guidance of Quinz will provide an exceptional advantage that will allow us to hit the ground running”.
