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.

We are thrilled to have organised and been a part of the conference “Managing New Business Frontiers in Africa: The Role of Arbitration” organized as part of the Paris Arbitration Week. The panel discussed the role that arbitration and arbitration practitioners can play in providing stability and security to new business endeavours in Africa

The session was moderated by Aimery de Schoutheete, Partner in Liedekerke’s International Arbitration practice and founder of the Kinshasa (DRC) and Kigali (Rwanda) offices of the firm.

The panel was composed of;

Diamana Diawara, ICC Director for Africa at the ICC International Court of Arbitration,

Karim Zein, Legal Counsel at Consolidated Contractors Company,

Alma Forgó, Head of Arbitration at Airbus SAS,

Erik Christiaen, Head of Legal, ENGIE Energy Access,

Arnaud Nuyts, Head of the Liedekerke IADR practice,

Bruno Hardy, Counsel in Liedekerke’s International Arbitration practice.

Closing remarks were delivered Gabriele Ruscalla, Senior Associate in Liedekerke’s International Arbitration practice.

The event was a great success with more than 80 participants.
