Through an extensive and careful nomination and peer review voting process, Best Lawyers® offers unbiased legal referrals from top rated lawyers across the world. We have highlighted the extraordinary talent and accomplishments of the legal community for more than four decades.

Lawyers who are nominated for consideration are voted on by currently recognized Best Lawyers working in the same practice area and located in the same geographic region. Our awards and recognitions are based purely on the feedback we receive from these top lawyers. Those who receive high peer reviews undergo a thorough verification process to make sure they are currently still in private practice. Only then can these top lawyers be recognized by Best Lawyers.

The year 2023 marks the 12th edition of The Best Lawyers in Belgium™ and recognizes the professional excellence of 630 lawyers in 55 practice areas, including 38 “Lawyer of the Year” recipients. “Lawyer of the Year” honors are awarded annually to only one lawyer per practice area in each region with extremely high overall feedback from their peers, making it an exceptional distinction.
