The fact that two of its partners are members of the Belgian Court of Cassation bar (Paul Alain Foriers and Caroline De Baets) and the presence of the former President of the Court of Cassation bar (Lucien Simont), together with a team of  otherspecialist partners, enable SIMONT BRAUN to defend its clients’ interests before the courts at all levels. Their in-depth knowledge of the case-law of the Court of Cassation also proves to be a considerable asset, when it comes to proceedings on the merits before all Belgian judges.

In addition, the Supreme Courts team regularly represents clients before the Supreme Administrative Court for injunction and setting-aside appeals, including in matters of urgency.
In relation to Community trademark litigation, the team’s lawyers also regularly appear before the European Court of Justice, the Benelux Court and the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM).
