WHY SHOULD YOU WORK WITH US ?

Working with Eric van Hooydonk Lawyers brings you distinct benefits.

 

We deliberately distinguish ourselves from other law firms, both great and small. In 1988 we started out as one of the very first niche law firms in Belgium. We are proud to offer you the following strengths.

We can guarantee top quality because we are a niche legal firm of academic standard. Our niche approach means that we strive to be the leaders in our field and that we also keep a close watch on new developments. One of the ways we do this is by helping governments and stakeholders with the preparation of new legislation.

 

Similarly the organization and structure of our firm is such that it is directed at on-going strict quality control.

 

One of the great strengths of our firm is our ability to deal with new bottlenecks and to think up new and original solutions. The success of the trials we pursue, our opinions, contracts, articles of associations and legal texts can easily be seen from how much attention other people give to them.

 

We do not handle much routine business, rather we are specialized problem solvers who deal with things nobody else dare touch and for which no answer can be found in reference works or case law.

 

The profiles of our lawyers, and in particular the academic references and excellent reputation of Professor Eric Van Hooydonk and our extensive legal library and source archive gives you the assurance that your case will be handled in the best way possible. Our younger associates are selected strictly and are given thorough training.

 

Thanks to its standing in its chosen fields Eric Van Hooydonk Lawyers is an international brand, which provides you with an authoritative legal product that people are certain to take good account of.

Eric Van Hooydonk Lawyers is fast and direct where it needs to be. We have flexible diaries, we work at the weekend and during the holidays, and huissiers (process servers) are always ready to act.

 

When demanding research is called for we can draw on the legal databases and our own specialized library, which must be one of the best stocked in the country for our particular niches. If you are looking for academic depth and authority, you have come to the right address.

NO NONSENSE APPROACH

MORE THAN 25 YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL LITIGATION AND CONSULTANCY

TOP LEGAL QUALITY WITH A RESOUNDING BRAND NAME

DOWN TO EARTH AND MARKET DRIVEN

EXTENSIVE NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL NETWORK

Working with us gives you the important certainty of a personal and fast response and direct contact with the lawyer or lawyers handling your account.

 

We waste no time with an internal hierarchy and bureaucracy. Your file will not get lost in the anonymity of the back office.

 

It is for Professor Eric Van Hooydonk a point of honour to draft all opinions, writs of summons, pleadings, letters and so on, himself or in close consultation with an associate. We leave no stone unturned.

We have been successfully advising government agencies and business for a quarter of a century.

 

We know the ins and outs of legal proceedings both in Belgium and abroad. We have given hundreds of legal and multidisciplinary opinions, drafted dozens of new laws, decrees and regulations, and successfully supervised the negotiation of commercial and political deals, both large and small, public contracts and concessions, new rules and regulations and major intra-governmental agreements in Europe and Asia.

Even though we are very proud of our academic reputation, Eric Van Hooydonk Lawyers is a practice-based law firm that always does what the client needs, no more and no less than that.

 

We work towards the desired result in close consultation with you. For example we work to ensure that your investment project can go ahead, your negotiations come to a successful conclusion, government services, agencies, politicians and judges take account of your position, your claims are paid, and discriminatory legislation and rules are circumvented.

 

Is a specialized law firm expensive? Quite the opposite. Our firm does not incur pointless overheads that are irrelevant to the client. Our offers to businesses, whether large or small, and to government agencies quote very competitive rates and we are always ready to discuss our terms. Depending on your preferences we work on a lump-sum basis, by hour, by day, or depending on the value of the settlement, or some other formula. No unpleasant surprises in this respect when you work with us.

Our specialist firm offers you the advantages of a specialized worldwide network when you need it.

 

If your case so requires, we can arrange collaboration with legal specialists in other fields. For example we work with outstanding tax experts and notaries, and with the best economic, financial and technical consultants, just to ensure that we can bring you the best overall solution. Does your case call for action in another country? We will quickly find a leading lawyer or adviser there for you.

 

Our firm works with a broad base of faithful customers and maintains high level personal contacts with politicians, diplomats and business, both in Belgium and abroad. This too works in your favour.

Eric Van Hooydonk Lawyers is active in virtually all parts of the world.

 

Car park concessions in Flanders and Wallonia, shipping disputes and port policy and law in the European Union, transport and river policy in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos, port reform in Africa and South America, expert testimony before the courts in the United States, academic research in association with our Australian correspondents, and so on. We have the right references and contacts wherever you may go.
