COVID-19

The implications of the COVID-19 pandemic reach across borders, industries, and legal disciplines. That is why Loyens & Loeff has set up dedicated expert teams - to offer you an integrated answer to all your legal and tax questions related to the coronavirus outbreak.

Op 12 maart 2020 werd door het kabinet aangekondigd dat vanwege COVID-19 iedereen die daartoe in staat was de komende twee weken thuis moest werken.

Digital Economy

Digital transformation is all about using the latest technology to improve your business model. Digital technology creates new business opportunities which in turn creates a whole new range of tax and legal challenges such as contracting, data protection, privacy questions, intellectual property, consumer protection and competition issues.

Over the past few weeks, we have discussed the main changes to Belgian consumer law resulting from the implementation of the so-called Digital Sales Directive and Omnibus Directive.

How we can help

Comprehensive strategy

Our team has ample experience in defining comprehensive class action strategies. By closely monitoring all relevant media, we anticipate any potential class actions. In the event of an actual class action, we will deep dive into the claims and facts, and guide you through the possible scenarios. From settlement at an early stage to pursuing litigation, you can count on our experts to take your business interests to heart.

Four home markets in Europe

In the absence of a single EU regulation on general collective redress, you may have to deal with several European jurisdictions. As an independent firm based in our four home markets of Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland, we are firmly anchored in continental Europe. Our international offices in the world’s main financial centres, enable us to stay in close contact with other global law firms.

Team & work highlights

With over twenty experts focusing on class actions, we have all areas covered: from securities litigation and data and privacy law, to antitrust infringements. We have successfully represented Facebook (Meta) and Ryanair in Belgian class actions, a defendant in the Dutch class action related to the LIBOR case, a company in a class action involving public interests.

 

Our litigation teams focus on the most appropriate form of dispute resolution, in and outside of court, from arbitration to mediation. Always looking for the best possible outcome.
Trust in our multidisciplinary legal teams to do what it takes to adequately resolve any type of commercial or corporate dispute, and support you in facing litigation proceedings.
The effects of a cartel claim can be far-reaching. Cartel damages actions are large and complex. Seeking legal assistance at an early stage is vital.
