Philippe & Partners

Pourquoi agissons-nous ?

Notre conviction est que l’innovation doit être privilégiée comme source de progrès.

Notre action  est  donc inspirée  par  une valeur essentielle, qui fonde le rôle social de l’avocat : la réussite de vos projets.

Comment exerçons-nous ?

Avant toute chose, nous cherchons à vous comprendre.

C’est pourquoi nous ne concevons pas le rôle de l’avocat comme étant seulement de décrire les règles du droit, mais bien comme étant de dégager des solutions pragmatiques, juridiquement solides, assurant  la  réalisation  de vos objectifs. Nombre d’entre nous ayant été détachés au sein de vos entreprises, nous comprenons votre fonctionnement interne.

L’anticipation  des  évolutions  du  droit  permet  de contribuer à la pérennité des solutions juridiques. Pour cette raison, notre association est composée d’avocats spécialisés. Elle a également tissé des liens très étroits avec le monde académique, nombre de nos avocats assumant des charges d’enseignement au sein des principales universités  belges et de certaines universités européennes.

Notre association est présente dans plusieurs pays et nos avocats sont multilingues. Nous avons  en outre développé, au  fil du temps, des partenariats privilégiés avec des  réseaux internationaux d’avocats partageant nos valeurs humanistes. Cette richesse nous permet d’accompagner vos projets partout dans le monde.
