Established in 1989, the Brussels office is an essential component of Hunton Andrews Kurth’s cross-border corporate and regulatory practices. The lawyers in our Brussels office advise a wide range of clients on compliance, transactional, strategic, dispute resolution and policy matters at both the EU and national levels.
Our award-winning data protection and privacy team handles cross-border security incidents, data transfers, and privacy issues pertaining to “new media” technologies such as cloud computing and mobile apps. We are particularly renowned for helping clients comply with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
As one of the leading EU regulatory law firms in Brussels, we focus on environmental law, health and safety, energy, chemical law, life sciences, biotechnology and product regulation. We provide the depth of understanding necessary to devise smart, sustainable solutions for our clients’ thorniest problems, handling issues that are often situated at the interface of science, policy and law.
Our corporate and commercial practice in Brussels assists clients with virtually every form of corporate transactions. We also advise on commercial agreements, including agency, distribution, franchising, licensing, manufacturing, warehousing and equipment leasing contracts, and are adept at coordinating cross-border transactions handled from Brussels.
Besides providing high quality legal services to clients, we are mindful of our social responsibility, and understand that social responsibility cannot be limited to the performance of pro bono work. For that reason, we regularly supplement our pro bono work by identifying opportunities where our people can help “on the ground.”
