We are renowned for our responsiveness and our mastery of complex cases. Our clients particularly appreciate our understanding of their business, as well as our constant concern for creating value by providing practical and concrete solutions.
High technicality, transversality and excellence are our watchwords.
Our team is currently composed of 49 lawyers, 40 of whom work in our Brussels office and 9 in our Kinshasa office. A number of them are registered not only at the Brussels and/or Kinshasa bars, but also at the bars of New York, Paris or Geneva.
