Cadanz constantly aims to proactively manage its clients' business risks to avoid unnecessary disputes.

However, in case a dispute arises, and an amicable settlement is no feasible or sensible solution, Cadanz will resolutely defend the interests of its clients.

Over the years, the lawyers at Cadanz have built up a broad experience in litigating the most diverse matters before Belgian courts and arbitral tribunals.  Occasionally, we act as experts to opine on matters of Belgian law in disputes before foreign courts.  

Although we assist clients in a variety of matters, Cadanz has specific expertise in litigation with respect to problems of commercial and corporate law.
