Loyens & Loeff Belgium strengthens the practice Corporate Investigations, Compliance & Business Crime Defence
Corporate clients must comply with a booming variety of obligations that are criminally sanctioned. The risk of facing prosecutions and their reputational impact has clearly become a serious concern for clients, who seek assistance from competent counsel to both prevent criminal behaviours within their company and remedy such situations.
Since companies themselves can become a victim of fraud or breach of internal regulations or be exposed to a new type of cyber-criminality, knowing who to turn to for counsel regarding criminal investigations and procedure has become part of their risk management strategies.
In order to respond to these clients needs, Loyens & Loeff Belgium is adding a branch to its Litigation & Risk Management services and expanding with the development of the Corporate Investigations, Compliance & Business Crime Defence team on a local and international level.
Clémence Van Muylder
As of 1 February, Clémence Van Muylder will join the Litigation & Risk Management Practice Group of Loyens & Loeff Belgium to reinforce the team focussing on Corporate Investigations, Compliance & Business Crime Defence. Clémence is an all-round litigator with considerable experience in a wide range of commercial litigation, white collar crime, regulatory, administrative and criminal investigations and proceedings, as well as products liability. She has developed an expertise in the fields of business crime law and international private law. Additionally, Clémence obtained the certificate of cassation training in criminal matters and is able to represent clients before the Belgian Supreme Court (Hof van Cassatie / Cour de cassation) in criminal matters. She also holds an academic position of teaching assistant for the course of conflict of laws at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.
Hakim Boularbah, Head of the Litigation & Risk Management Practice Group of Loyens & Loeff Belgium: “We warmly welcome Clémence to Loyens & Loeff.
