In Belgium’s negotiated economy, a significant number of professions, industries and markets are regulated and controlled by, for example, various types of professional organizations, overview committees, advisory boards, market regulators.

Our public law experts advise both private sector clients and governments on complying with the regulations applicable to the area they are active in.

More specifically, we assist our clients in proceedings before market regulators and supervisors (e.g. when seeking authorizations, market access or arbitration) as well as before the (administrative) courts. In this respect, we often work together closely with other Lydian teams, specialized in the underlying field of law (energy, pensions, and insurance amongst others).

We also assist our clients in reaching negotiated solutions for their compliance with the regulatory framework, for example, by drafting policy agreements, administrative appeals or briefs.
