Organising regular events for all members of the firm is pretty much synonymous with the Liedekerke approach 'we work hard but play hard as well'. A number of events such as the Liedekerke Summer Event, the Liedekerke After Summer Event, the Liedekerke Revue, our regular afterwork drinks throughout the year, ‘brain maniac’ breakfasts in the firm, etc… are recurring events that allow us to connect with each other more outside the professional working environment which obviously has a positive impact to the cooperation in the office as well. Soak up the cool atmosphere that is strong at these events by watching some after-event movies.


For the 19th year in a row, 58 international and national law firms based in Brussels joined forces as one team to participate in the annual 20km run through Brussels (20km door Brussel-20km de Bruxelles). Nearly 500 lawyers and law firm staff ran under the Legal Run banner to collect money to support Oxybulle, the selected charity of the year.

Oxybulle is an association of volunteers supporting some 190 children and teenagers from 3 to 18 years of age housed in 12 residential homes in the province of Namur. For a variety of reasons, including difficult family situations where parents are unable to offer safe and secure environments or struggling with financial difficulties, many youngsters are growing up in residential homes. They are surrounded by professional educators, speech therapists and, psychologists and while some stay for a few days or months, others stay until they reach the age of 18. Although some youngsters go home to their families on the weekends, others have little or no family contact at all. Oxybulle exists for them, to offer outings, leisure activities and opportunities for learning, discovery and connection.

The Legal Run has become a tradition within the Brussels legal community. Each participating firm sponsors its runners who collectively run for the same charity. The Legal Run is not only a fun sporting event for lawyers and legal staff alike, it also provides great exposure and financial support for the selected charity. For the previously selected charity, Kick Cancer, the Legal Run was able to raise almost €50,000.
