We have extensive experience in all aspects of commercial and contract litigation and arbitration.
We deal with disputes arising in the context of a wide range of contracts that are commonly entered into by any company, such as purchase and sale agreements, (commercial) lease agreements, management agreements, non-compete and exclusivity covenants, service agreements, loan agreements, manufacturing agreements.
Additionally, we advise clients in contentious situations with regard to distribution, franchising or agency contracts.
An increasing part of our practice is dedicated to disputes regarding IT contracts, such as software development and licensing, both for software companies confronted with client complaints and payment refusals, as for entrepreneurs and companies that engage with an IT company to optimize their internal processes and are dissatisfied with the service provider’s work.
Cooperation agreements and joint venture agreements between separate entities wanting to join forces may also lead to conflicts. We assist our clients in tackling those.
The team is solution oriented. We provide pre-litigation advise, risk management, and regularly assist clients in settlement negotiations. Whenever required, we represent our clients before Belgian courts and arbitral tribunals.
