IFLR

2018 IFLR1000 

Laga is among Belgian law firms recommended by IFLR in the newly released edition of their guide.

In its 2018 edition, IFLR (the guide to the leading financial law firms), recommends Laga's Banking and finance, capital markets and M&A teams.

Werner Van LembergenDavid Roelens and Benoit Feron continue to be highly regarded and have been nominated as Leading Lawyers.

Client feedback includes:

  • “Laga provide good, practical advice in relation to Belgian law issues. They have very good English language skills and understand the Anglo-Saxon working model. They are therefore responsive and flexible when it comes to adapting Belgian law requirements to English law deal doing.”
  • “They are a very accessible and commercially minded team. They are also very inquisitive and well-connected in the market and very service oriented and cooperative.”
  • “Laga's M&A team is very client orientated and consequently very flexible and creative in finding legal solutions. The team works together in an excellent manner so that as a client you do not notice who is doing the actual work. A minor weakness last year was the fact that two (junior) lawyers left the team, but the transition to their successors was bridged very well by the rest of the team.”
