Spectrum Legal is a multidisciplinary partnership of lawyers, legal practitioners and mediators with the aim of providing legal peace of mind to entrepreneurs, companies and administrations and thus allowing them to focus on the actual business.
From years of experience as a lawyer and legal interim manager in various national and international companies, we noticed that too little value was attached to the prevention of legal problems and conflicts. Once a conflict had arisen, too little was focused on the solution to be achieved.
We work from our experience and our knowledge of your day-to-day business, possibly after first going through a legal interim / secondment process, so that our opinions are pragmatic and concrete. We point to risks and problems, but also offer solutions so that you can do business undisturbed.
We prefer alternative dispute resolution, based on negotiation and mediation, over one-sided rulings by outsiders (judges, arbitrators...), but if there is no other way out, our lawyers defend your interests with heart and passion before any court or arbitrator.
Spectrum legal is an innovative multidisciplinary partnership between lawyers, legal practitioners and mediators, because we are convinced that sharing knowledge and experience from different legal perspectives is in each client's favour.
We are committed to digitisation and modernisation, with electronic file management and access to digital legal databases. We closely follow economic, technical and legal developments. But also in terms of cooperation, we leave the classical hierarchical structures, and prefer horizontal cooperation with (external) partners when this can support the service to the client.
We work precisely, meticulously and cautiously, with a heart for the client and demand that our employees and partners share the same values.
