Simont Braun’s lawyers act before courts at all levels in civil, commercial and administrative matters, as well as in special proceedings.
Our lawyers also act in national and international arbitration as counsel, legal expert or arbitrator.
Simont Braun tends to favour mediation, conciliation and negotiation to solve conflicts. Our firm is a signatory of the Bmediation Charter and counts several mediators registered with the Federal Mediation commissions.
Simont Braun counts two partners admitted to the Belgian Supreme Court bar (Cour de Cassation/Hof van Cassatie): Paul Alain Foriers and Ann Frédérique Belle. Their in-depth knowledge of the case law of the Supreme Court is a highly valuable asset for all proceedings before Belgian courts. Our lawyers also have longstanding expertise in proceedings before the Council of State (administrative supreme court) and the Constitutional Court.

Besides a team dedicated to dispute resolution, the lawyers of our other departments are also renowned litigators in their area of expertise.
At Simont Braun, we firmly believe that work of the highest quality is delivered by lawyers able to anticipate and understand potential judicial issues. .
Our experts are fully aware of business realities and will always focus on finding efficient, pragmatic and constructive solutions, with litigation being the last resort.
