Simont Braun unveils new logo and designs

As we are now (more or less) allowed to go out again… Simont Braun is happy to also release its new logo!


Simont Braun’s new logo is designed to be a reflection of the firm’s evolution while preserving our fundamentals.

We wanted to keep the green, Simont Braun’s historic colour, as it represents balance and progress, but we made it more intense and modern. We also added our secondary colour: the orange. This colour is a symbol of creativity, communication and energy, which embodies perfectly the evolution Simont Braun has experienced in recent years,” explains Nelly Chammas, Communication & Marketing Manager.

The new logo also reinvents our famous vertical line, this time as a link between Simont and Braun.

We are delighted with this new design which embodies the firm’s values with a spirit of freshness, modernity and continuity,” adds Béatrice Thieffry, co-Managing Partner.

Simont Braun’s rebranding includes a top-to-bottom redesign of the company’s communications, brochures, news, etc.

Simont Braun worked on this new logo with the cooperation of the graphic design agency McArnolds.

The Simont Braun Train has arrived at the MIPIM 2019!

Cette année encore, le cabinet d’avocats Simont Braun a organisé un voyage en train pour les Belges qui se rendent au MIPIM à Cannes.

Une initiative lancée en 2017 déjà. ‘A l’origine motivé par une conscience écologique grandissante avant la lettre, c’était aussi l’occasion de créer un événement… autour de l’événement,’ explique Thomas Braun, à l’initiative du projet. Et le succès ne s’est pas fait attendre : le « Train Simont Braun 2019 » est complet depuis le mois de décembre.

Les participants sont enthousiastes : la formule est pratique et conviviale, le déjeuner offert à bord, et les voyageurs ont l’occasion de rencontrer, en plus petit comité, un panel varié de professionnels de l’immobilier avant le bain de foule à Cannes, et d’en débriefer lors du trajet retour.

A l’heure où l’on marche pour le climat tous les jeudis, voilà une démarche qui s’inscrit dans l’air du temps. Quand on sait que le MIPIM attire près de 2000 belges chaque année et que moins de 8h suffisent pour s’y rendre en train, reste à espérer que le « Train Simont Braun » inspirera même les plus pressés.

International Women’s Day at Simont Braun

As a founding member of the Legal Diversity & Inclusion Alliance, Simont Braun celebrated the International Women’s Day by quizzing its lawyers on women’s achievements across centuries. Did you know that women were not allowed to become lawyers in Belgium until 1922? And that both the circular saw and wipers were invented by women?
