The new judicial year begins today bringing in its wake a new firm : DALDEWOLF.
DALDEWOLF is the result of the merger between DAL & VELDEKENS and a dozen former members of the firm DE WOLF & PARTNERS.
As a renowned law firm established in Brussels, DAL & VELDEKENS, through the initiative of its founders, has developed its practice dealing with all aspects of corporate law. It has acquired over time an eminent reputation in European law, competition law, arbitration and more recently in public procurement. The firm combines technical expertise with a strong culture of independence.
With the arrival of lawyers from DE WOLF & PARTNERS who are active in corporate law (M&A, restructuring, OHADA), arbitration, tax, IP/IT and construction law, the firm strengthens its expertise and expands its scope of activities as well as its international coverage.
Our various and complementary areas of competence, the young talents we wish to promote, the in-depth experience gained by our teams through experience, academic work in universities and though positions in American law firms, as well as our valuable international background, particularly in Africa, are key assets in providing our clients with the best services.
Clients are facing numerous and complex challenges.
The development of technology requires continuous adjustments. Despite many attempts to cure the problem, the length of judicial proceedings continues to be an issue. Economic recovery remains slow.
Our firm helps its clients to overcome these difficulties by providing them with the most appropriate assistance.
Economic development requires good knowledge and proficiency in all aspects of IP and IT law as a priority. The same applies to the use of alternative dispute resolution methods, which provide for quick and appropriate means to reach a settlement. In addition, an economic approach to law and the practice of competition law is more and more necessary in various economic sectors, such as telecom, distribution, energy and regulated professions.
These services will be made available on all markets where we are active, including the on the African continent which, thanks to sustained growth, is characterized by the development of a stronger competition legal framework and by the rising number of investment disputes.
In order to mark this renewal and to implement this action plan, our firm has adopted a new image and a new website.
A change in the management is also being implemented as of September 1, 2015, with Patrick DE WOLF succeeding Thierry BONTINCK as Managing Partner.
