Legalis is specialized in company law, in the broad sense.

This means that companies can call upon our services at the start of their company until its liquidation, as well as during the entire period in between.


As one of few offices, Legalis can claim to be specialized in transportation law.

The office can provide practical solutions for every question or problem regarding, among others, transportation licences, CMR and load securing. Furthermore, the office has acquired knowlegde in criminal transportation law.


As a bankruptcy administrator, Mr. Macours has full knowlegde of insolvency law.

Therefore, Legalis can assist you in every aspect of insolvency and bankruptcy law: Continuity of Companies, bankruptcies, liquidations.


Through the years, the clients of Legalis are getting more often confronted with questions or problems in an international context.

Because of this, the office has had the opportunity to optimise its knowledge concerning cross-border juridical problems.


Legalis can rely on an experience build up over many years in the field of traffic law.

The defense in criminal proceedings, as well as in civil proceeding in front of the Police Court and the Court of First Instance, as well as the application for damages and the resolution of civil interests for these courts can be entrusted to the office.







Legalis strifes to deal with the cases entrusted while offering the largest guarantees of quality as possible. This means that work should be carried out selectively.

In this case, it means that the office will only deal with cases within the sectors of company law, business law, economic law, transportation law, social law, traffic law, insurance law, social and economic criminal law, criminal transportation law, administrative law and cross-border disputes.

The office strifes primarly after a relationship of trust with the clients.

A good cooperation often begins on the ocassion of legal proceedings, but should result in a reduction of the number of pending proceedings by means of a preventive approach.

Advices are often (figuratively) priceless, when they can prevent innecessary expenses. However, providing solid advices requires a thorough knowledge of the activities of the clients.

That is why specialized expertise is most efficient when there is a lasting cooperation. Besides this, Legalis is often consulted in the sectors of transportation law, company law and international private law in single cases. These interventions happen on request of a colleague or a legal expenses insurer. In some cases, the nature of the dispute can actually require a specific expertise of the concerning matter.


  • Transparancy

    Legalis has a high regard of the concept of transparancy. This translates into clarity towards the clients in terms of the course of procedures, but also in terms of costs.

  • Consultation

    Legalis strifes after a permanent consultation with clients about the approach and services.g

  • Experience

    Mr. Theo Macours is a lawyer since 1987 and therefore posseses an extensive experience.

    21/06/2017 - WLN's footprint in Delhi, India

    WLN had a fantastic conference in Delhi in February 2017 but we were touched too by the work of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) India (Doctors without Borders). Sexual and gender based violence is quite a taboo in India and therefore it is difficult to reach those victims and to offer help. MSF Delhi is now working on a campaign to advertise in the metro (see photos, right) and we gladly support their fantastic work and this campaign.  We are pleased in the meantime to have collected a significant sum from WLN members and paid that on to MSF. For more information on MSF and their work in Delhi:
