Arbitration (national and international)

Arbitration is an efficient, flexible and business-oriented dispute resolution mechanism. With an extensive international enforceability of arbitral awards, it is especially suited for clients with international business activities. No wonder that arbitration has become increasingly preferred both by Belgian and international enterprises.

Experience as counsel and arbitrator

Our arbitration team is renowned for its extensive experience in national and international arbitration procedures. 

We are also involved in procedures under the rules of the major arbitral institutions, such as the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), CEPANI, WIPO and the American Arbitration Association (AAA), and in ad hoc proceedings. Our lawyers regularly act as counsel to parties and as arbitrator. They also intervene as expert witness in Belgian law.

 

Flexibility and strategy of arbitration

As counsel, we assist our clients through the entire arbitration procedure: the request for arbitration, the arbitral procedure and the enforcement and/or annulment of the arbitral award. 

At every stage, we exploit the flexibility and efficiency offered by arbitration to organise the procedure in line with our clients’ expectations and to obtain the best results for our clients. Our arbitration team works closely with our clients to set out and implement strategies that correspond with their business needs.

Our arbitration experts are frequently nominated as sole arbitrator or as a member of an arbitral tribunal. They are widely recognised for their sound knowledge, extensive experience, pragmatism and efficiency.
