Liedekerke assisted EDF Luminus, one of the largest energy supplier in Belgium, in an important procedure against the Belgian State.

The case refers to the reimbursement of taxes on the gas used to generate power (the so-called “federal contribution”), for breach of EU directive 2003/96 on the taxation of energy products.

The Brussels Tribunal of First Instance recently ruled in favor of EDF Luminus.

Liedekerke’s team was led by Damien Verhoeven, head of Energy.
