Administrative, environmental and urban planning law

Administrative, environmental and urban planning law contain a multitude of questions facing a business when it undertakes a project.

One of the main difficulties arises from the overlapping of rules. Various regulations overlap not only at the Belgian federal, regional, provincial and municipal levels, but also at the European Union level.

We work in matters as wide-ranging as the civil service, public procurement markets, expropriation in the public interest, and permits.

Our team of specialists can assist you in preparing your projects or in connection with disputes before Belgium’s administrative and trial and appellate courts. We often appear before the Constitutional Court and the Council of State (Conseil d’Etat), two of Belgium’s highest jurisdictions. We also plead cases before the Court of Justice of the European Union.

We have comprehensive experience in all these practice areas.  

In public procurement matters, we have often represented, depending on the matter, the awarding party, the awardee or the losing bidder.

The same goes for other disputes, e.g., in appointments of civil servants, permit applications and expropriation in the public interest.

This special trait enables us to better understand the arguments of the opposing party in order to better overcome them. This is, in some way, a case of putting the millennial wisdom of Sun Tzu to work.
