Through the years, the clients of Legalis are more often confronted with questions or problems in an international context.
As a result, the office has had the opportunity to optimise her knowledge regarding cross-border juridical problems.
For example, the office regularly does reviews of agreements and contracts in an international context, obtains judgements against foreign parties and takes care of the execution abroad of Belgian judgements and of foreign judgements in Belgium.
To work as efficiently as possible on the international level, Legalis is a member of an international network. Because of this, it is possible to call upon foreign correspondents when necessary.
Obtaining judgements against foreign debtors and the monitoring of the execution thereof abroad
After a review of the competence, a judgement or a European payment order can obtained from the Belgian courts. After the declaration of enforceability, the necessary will be done for the execution in the country of the debtor. The approach will always be coordinated with the client at the beginning of a case.
Legalis disposes over a sufficient experience and knowledge regarding the costs and expenses for executions abroad.
Drafting and review of agreements in an international context
In all domains where Legalis is active, it is also possible to call upon the office for agreements of an international nature. Particular attention will always be paid to competence of courts and applicable laws.
