Dear reader

You regularly call in our expert teams to help you. The market has once again validated that trust.

At the 2011 edition of the Belgian Legal Awards, on 24 March, CMS DeBacker was awarded “Best Environmental, Energy and Regulatory Team of the Year”. The awarding jury was composed of a selection of in-house legal advisers and business leaders.

For Eric Gillet, Head of our Public Law department, “the award is an accolade from the market for our firm and the quality and breadth of our regulatory advice – which includes among others: environment and energy, public private partnerships, public procurement, REACH, healthcare and life sciences. Our firm holds a leading position in regulatory issues and our involvement in complex high-visibility projects demonstrates that.” Luc Depré, Head of our Environment and Energy practice, sees the award as a great boost for his practice: “this is a wonderful reward for the teams’ brilliant work”.

Following recent recognition in public procurement and insolvency, this award demonstrates our firm’s engagement in innovation, quality and outstanding service delivery.

This month the newsletter looks at developments in IP, environment and energy, competition law, healthcare, and public procurement.

Have a great read!
