Our approach and our assets
- The flexibility of a small united structure
- Useful and pragmatic advice at a well-controlled cost
- Well thought out openness to alternative dispute resolutions
- International openness and experience
- Proven experience and judgment
- Excellence and rigor
- Confidentiality and Independence
All our energy and our time are dedicated to the study of the cases and to personalized services to our clients. We are not subject to any internal constraint likely to enter into conflict with the clients’ interest.
This freedom and flexibility allow us to give top priority to the result pursued by the customer by paying particular attention to their business objectives. Our financial conditions are well controlled and flexible.
Our versatile experience allows us quickly to judge whether and when the solution of a dispute can – with a reasonable chance of success – be sought within an alternative dispute resolution mode. A solution obtained through negotiation or mediation can avoid years of costly and sometimes unproductive litigation.
Our frequent interventions in transnational operations and the practice of international arbitration put us in constant contact with many different subject matters and with foreign law firms situated in a wide range of countries, with whom we have appropriate contacts whenever needed. Our independence allows us to respond on a case-by-case basis to the needs of firms that do not have adequate resources in Belgium.
We rely on a versatile experience in the legal profession. We alternate between consulting roles in the design of operations, as contract drafter, negotiator, arbitrator or in giving advice in litigation. Practicing these multiple roles allows us to perceive the strengths and weaknesses of a situation in a timely manner.
Imagination and flexibility are nothing without rigor. We lay great importance on the fact that our opinions should result from high quality legal analysis. Each member of our firm has a university post and / or regularly publishes legal studies. All partners have developed their business activity while working for reputable law firms which apply the highest international quality standard.
Our small, independent structure guarantees the highest level of confidentiality.
