Our multidisciplinary team handles all aspects of constitutional law and human rights, placing years of public and administrative law expertise at our clients’ disposal.
There are many constitutional and human rights law questions we handle in the area of public law such as the structure and organisation of government, division of powers and the position of the judiciary. In Belgium, we also advise on the limitations of these areas of law in the governmental and administrative structure of the country as a federal state.
We assist clients in ascertaining if governmental policy and legislation is allowed or not both from a constitutional law and human rights point of view. In addition, we have special expertise of tort law in the context of human rights, and we are involved in proceedings against the State because of unlawful legislation.
Another key aspect of our service is advice on the creation of legislation at all state levels. We also represent clients in litigious matters regarding alleged inconsistency of legislation with constitutional law and human rights. In such matters our team represents clients before the national courts, the European Court for Human Rights and the European Union Courts.
