The Role of the Lawyer
The lawyer advises. The lawyer represents. The lawyer defends. If you are faced with a dispute, we will advise you on the most effective strategy to regain control of your situation.
We will present you with your rights and those of your opponent before working with you to determine the best solution to turn your business around.
If necessary, we take your word to the courts. We defend your interests before all courts.
The lawyer reconciles. In the event of a dispute, a commercial solution is often preferable to court proceedings. Legal arguments can strengthen your position in a commercial negotiation. We assist you in providing the arguments that will tip the negotiations in your favour.
The lawyer drafts. The lawyer is a legal auxiliary. If your company does not have a legal department, we will draft the documents (articles of association, contracts, etc.) you need. If you already have in-house legal counsel, we will assist you in reviewing and strengthening the most complex legal documents.

I act in accordance with the ethical rules applicable to lawyers at the Bar of Liège.
My fees are subject to a fair moderation which takes into account the importance and complexity of the dispute, the duties performed, the level of the interests in dispute, the specialisation of the matters dealt with, the result obtained and the urgency of the intervention.
Depending on the type of intervention, we agree on one of the following fee calculation methods:
- an hourly wage ;

I will keep you regularly informed of the progress of your case with transparency and clarity.
