Our contribution to society

 

We believe that a good lawyer is a responsible lawyer.

Environment

We have developed innovative solutions to environmental challenges, which include a recycling plan and a comprehensive range of initiatives designed to minimise our consumption of energy and paper.

Moreover, the fact that our office is located just 5 minutes on foot from Brussels Central Station enables our lawyers and staff to use public transport, helping to reduce our CO2 burden.

 

Not-for-profit and pro bono

Many of the lawyers in our firm actively help non-profit organisations.

Drawing on their experience and their extensive knowledge of the law, they work tirelessly, often in their own time, providing free advice.

The firm itself is also involved in socio-cultural projects: contributing to the development of society is both a duty and a pleasure.

With our pro bono programme, we are also keen to promote accessible justice for all, in order to defend organisations and individuals who otherwise might not have access to legal assistance.

We are also active members of the Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation, which supports the world’s biggest social entrepreneurs by providing them with legal services and know-how.

 

Education and personal development

More than 20 of our lawyers and many of our associates hold academic posts as professors, assistants or researchers, both in Belgium and abroad.

We are also involved with ‘Women on Board’, which aims to promote women’s access to management posts in Belgian companies, and with ‘Women in Law’, which trains, encourages and supports talented women in law firms.
