COMMERCIAL LAW

Our clients are relevant commercial players within their market and are daily confronted with legal challenges such as: market practices, insolvency, intellectual property rights, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, etc. We proactively support our clients with their strategy and the legal hurdles towards their business ambitions.

 

CONFLICT MANAGEMENT

Discussions with business partners can block the operation of your company. Conflict management is imperative to solve the disputes with the less possible harm to your business.

At Van Gompel Advocaten we go for a negotiated solution, possibly within the framework of mediation. We are fair, yet tough players at the negotiating table.

Within our niches, we are experts in effective litigation. When alternative dispute resolution did not bring the hoped-for result, we carry out a thorough cost-benefit analysis of filing a legal procedure, in which we have large experience: whether in summary proceedings, on unilateral request or by summons.

Our office is also involved in various arbitral proceedings, both as counsel for one of the parties and as a member of the arbitral panel.

SPANISH DESK

Pioneers in the field of law

Our Spanish desk is led by Laura van Gompel.

Anno 2021 we have our own legal counsel in Mexico and Spain (who support us for example in proceedings before local courts or customs authorities and/or specific advice under Mexican or Spanish law).

With this counsel, our Spanish desk officially took shape.

Assisted by our local teams, our Spanish desk focuses on Mexican companies or companies with Spanish language that want to do business in Belgium or Europe. In the other direction, we provide legal assistance to Belgian and European companies with commercial interests in Mexico.
