With many years of involvement within both companies and government bodies, we are trusted advisors regarding litigation issues for the public and private sectors.
Through our multidisciplinary approach we handle complex disputes before administrative courts and the Council of State (Conseil d'Etat/Raad van State), other administrative courts and in Belgium, the Constitutional Court.
With experience in the various types of proceedings, we handle litigious matters for the central/federal state, municipalities, regions, government agencies, public bodies and public corporations in general administrative law. Conversely, we also advise private companies in lawsuits against public bodies.
Notably, various levels of government across the Benelux frequently consult us to prepare draft legislations and decisions. Such expertise gives us an in depth understanding of both lawmakers’ intentions and the interpretation of the law as well as decision makers’ practice.
Furthermore, we are highly experienced advisors in the rapidly growing field of government liability, where public authorities are increasingly faced with claims for damages from private individuals and companies.
