Client driven approach: we are confident that each one of our clients acknowledges and values our proactive and fast approach. Certainly in this industry sector, a swift and active follow-up on legal issues, is indispensable. Practical assistance: we know that business values practical and pointed input on the often complex legal questions. Unless required, we do not write handbooks on Belgian law but always provide ready-to-use, business-friendly and comprehensive feedback. Regulatory knowledge: DLA Piper Brussels has regular and good contacts with the Belgian Gaming Commission, which is the most important administrative authority in Belgium on any issues that arise in the industry. As a result, we have the most up-to-date information that can be taken into account when assisting our clients. Cross-departmental approach: many legal issues at stake for gaming, gambling and betting operators involve other branches of law and are not merely limited to sector specific legislation as such. We offer a unique advantage in this respect. We offer assistance in the fields of Litigation, Intellectual Property and Data Protection, Real Estate, Criminal law, Competition law, Mergers and Acquisitions, Tax and Financial regulations, and many others. As a result, in case of legal issues arising in any of those domains, DLA Piper Brussels can handle these issues in house and does not need to outsource to another law firm, which is only beneficial in terms of costs, efficiency and client ease.
