Mass claims and class actions
Simont Braun is a leading firm in mass claims and class actions in Belgium. Large-scale actions are increasingly frequent in Belgium and the litigation landscape is shifting accordingly, due to the magnitude of the risk faced by defendants. In this field, our litigators rely on their renowned and extensive legal knowledge to address the most complex issues of our clients, domestic and international, across various industries. We offer detailed risk assessment, pragmatic guidance, efficient strategy, comprehensive case management, and swift solutions.
Our accomplishments include the representation of claimants in major Belgian cases: we notably advised thousands of shareholders of Fortis bank in a multibillion financial liability case after the 2007 crisis; we also assisted hundreds of consumers of canceled Ryanair flights in 2018 in a multimillion EU Regulation 261/2004 case. Our strategies as claimants’ counsel have repeatedly led to successful outcomes through valuable settlements by defendants.
