Public Lawyers

Our Public and Administrative law team has a broad experience in all fields of public and administrative law. We deal with the most important matters concerning public procurements and financing public projects, public-private partnerships and public utilities. We also provide representation before regulatory authorities, the European Commission, the Competition Council in Belgium and other national jurisdictions. Whether you are a public organization, a municipal, regional or federal government or a European institution, our lawyers always handle your matters with an in-depth understanding of the sector in which you operate.

Our lawyers assist their clients in drafting laws and regulations (including for the implementation of European directives), in the creation of new public or private actors, or their reorganisation. We have an extensive knowledge of the public authorities’ interventions in the economy: competition, State aid, public holdings, inter-municipal entities, economic expansion laws, public service concessions, management agreements, exclusive and special rights, Eurostat criteria, etc.
