We have been deeply saddened by the loss of Jean-Marie De Backer on 16 June 2018. Our founding partner in 1987 and a driving force behind the merger with CMS in 2005, we owe him the success of our firm as we know it today. To many among us, he was a colleague and a mentor and last, but foremost, he was our friend. His kindness, sensitivity, brilliance and unparalleled aura will be sorely missed. Our thoughts go out to his friends and family.
In this newsletter, we bring you the latest legal news on retail and consumer products, technology, banking and finance, corporate law, real estate, competition, public procurement, employment and Luxembourg law. Please also check out the new book, just published by Larcier, “Jaarboek Omgevingsrecht”, edited by our colleague Gregory Verhelst, specialist in environmental law. The book covers various topics on environmental law, including the environmental permit for the parcelling of land.
We hope you have an enjoyable read.
