Liedekerke Wolters Waelbroeck Kirkpatrick has launched a complete rebrand that includes a new visual identity with changes to its logo and colour scheme, a new website and shortened brand name, Liedekerke. The rebrand reflects the firm’s client centricity focus that is the foundation of its culture and approach to service delivery and how it keeps on evolving and innovating to cater to the ever-changing needs of its clients.
Founded in 1965, the firm has grown from 4 to 200+ people and is today a recognised independent full service law firm. Based in Brussels and with a representative office in London, it has opened offices in Africa and consolidated its networks and relationships with leading law firms abroad throughout the years. While constantly re-inventing itself, it has maintained its strong values and solid reputation built on true grit and unwavering determination, which make Liedekerke the firm it is today.
Vincent Busschaert, Managing Partner of the firm comments: “We realised through the past years that the perception of the market did not completely fit with what we are and can offer. We needed to redefine our purpose and our mission, which is to be the go-to-firm that meets the legal business needs of our clients in an integrated fashion, in Belgium and beyond, building on our legal excellence, on our legal and sectorial knowledge and on our networks.”
François Tulkens, Chairman of the Board, adds: “Our vision is to operate with a focus on client intimacy, complementing our legal excellence with a permanent client-centric way of conducting business. We wanted to provide our clients, our networks and peers with the look and feel and user experience that truly reflects this purpose. We chose to create a visual identity which reflects our constantly changing environment, the passion of our people to deliver the best day after day.”
Founded in 1965 by lawyers committed to legal excellence, Liedekerke is an independent law firm recognised for its leadership and expertise and with an international reputation built upon an unchallenged expertise.
As a premium Belgian business law firm for nearly 60 years with offices in Brussels, London, Kinshasa and Kigali, our firm is dedicated to providing a world-class service by consistently delivering the finest assistance and guidance.
The firm has a strong advisory practice based on sector expertise and an in-depth knowledge of Belgian and European law. As an essential complement to its advisory activities, it represents clients in complex litigation before national, European and international courts, both judicial and arbitral, the Court of Cassation, the Council of State and the Belgian Constitutional Courts.
Clients can rely on creative and multidisciplinary teams which can advise on all types of matters in Belgium and assist with cross-border projects, thanks to our solid international service capabilities and relationships with leading law firms across the world. Liedekerke is recognized for its ability to quickly mobilise competent, flexible and multidisciplinary.
Our clients, active in a broad range of industries, including financial services and financial institutions, energy, real estate and construction, environment, TMT, retail, consumer goods and trade, public authorities and government agencies, automotive, transport, infrastructure and logistics, funds and asset management amongst others, rely on us to consistently go above and beyond their expectations. We offer them the finest legal guidance possible, combining the firm's solid international capability with strong local roots and in-depth regional knowledge.
With over 130 lawyers including 31 partners, our goal is not to be the largest firm but to be the firm of choice for clients who require trusted advice and innovative and business-aware legal solutions. Although we excel in minimising conflict, when litigation is unavoidable, we have a record of prevailing in court.
