Our team's IP litigation clients range from small designers like La Fille d'O, over major entertainment production companies like Studio 100 to BEL 20 companies like Telenet or multinationals like Vitra.
For these and other clients we have been involved in several landmark cases like the Telenet / United Video Properties patent litigation case which went up to the Court of Justice of the European Union "ECJ"). (C-57/15).
In a couple of months we will again appear before the ECJ in what will be a ground-breaking case on the question whether users who exchange copyright protected materials through peer-to-peer networks commit copyright infringement (C-579/19).
Besides our IP litigation practice, we have also built a nice sports law practice, which has led us to represent professional football players and cyclists before a wide variety of national and international arbitration panels. We are also active on the transactional front and have, for example, negotiated Marouane Fellaini's transfer to his current Chinese club or TV rights deals with the Premier League.
Our team is consistently well ranked in the Chambers Europe and Legal 500 legal directories
as well as in more IP focused directories like the 'IAM Patent 1000' and the 'Word Trademark Review 1000' rankings. I am particularly proud of the client quotes, which underline our energy, tenacity and creativity in our litigation work like this one:

"They are energetic, efficient and can think on their feet. Most importantly, they are brilliantly creative and tenacious." (WTR 1000, 2018).
I have attended four universities in four different languages. I accomplished my Bachelor at the Université de Namur, my Master at the Catholic University of Leuven (including one Erasmus year at the Università degl Studi di Siena in Italy) and an LL.M at Columbia University School of Law.
