Family Settlement and Court Proceedings

Divorce and separation cases and all related issues such as custody over minors and alimony issues between parents/(ex-)partners and the liquidation of assets after divorce or separation, inheritance quarrels between heirs and the liquidation of estate assets and issues related to personal status such as legal capacity (last will), surrogacy and legal parenthood. Our FSCP team serves private clients in potential or arisen, national or international, issues regarding their personal status, their families or their family enterprises.

As facts of life, these issues disrupt both your private and professional relationships and may result in conflict. Conflicts entail a huge risk of escalation.

Each issue merits a tailor-made approach. Litigation is not the inevitable way to deal with issues. Litigation may last for many years and often takes a heavy toll, emotionally and financially. We analyse and decide with you how to handle your issue in the most appropriate way: facilitation, negotiation, collaborative law, mediation, case settlement, arbitration or litigation (defending your interests in court). Our approach is closely linked with our offering in Advisory and Family Business Dynamics.

Our FSCP team is led by Stefanie Denorme and Prof. Dr. Frederik Swennen.
