Our preference is to prevent disputes altogether or nip them in the bud.

AKD advises and litigates on every possible dispute involving corporate law, including shareholders’ disputes, disputes between joint venture partners, inquiry procedures, corporate governance and participation disputes, group liability and directors’ and officers’ liability issues.

Class action lawsuits
AKD regularly represents consumer groups, investors or companies in class action lawsuits. We have the knowledge and the network to assist in these matters from the very start (obtaining funds) to the very end (drafting a settlement, for example).

Takeover disputes
Our lawyers have considerable experience handling disputes over broken negotiations, post-closing disputes such as guarantee and indemnity claims, disputes relating to unlawful competition and arguments over earn outs.

Commercial litigation
In our Belgian, Dutch and Luxembourg offices, AKD brings together specialists having ample expertise in a wide range of areas, including contracts of sale and purchase, general conditions, collaboration agreements, franchise agreements, manufacturing agreements, product liability and numerous other non-standard commercial contracts. Many of our specialists focus on particular markets, such as healthcare, defence, the media, international trade, industry or the public sector. This guarantees that you will get the expert to match your case.

Professional liability
Our specialists frequently assist independent professionals, such as doctors, accountants and tax consultants, who are being held liable for professional errors. In these cases, our services are often sought by the insurer with whom the professional concerned has taken out insurance.

Financial litigation
AKD advises and litigates on financial disputes, including disputes on structured finance transactions, investors’ liability and derivatives.

Impartial appreciation
Our clients highly appreciate our approach and the results we achieve for them, as comes to the fore in leading legal guides such as Chambers Europe and Chambers Global.
