Linklaters is a leading international law firm, and has advised on significant deals in over 100 countries. In addition to serving clients from its 30 offices and via its alliance with Allens and Webber Wentzel, Linklaters’ lawyers have expertise in key jurisdictions across emerging Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. In Belgium, Linklaters is recognised as a market-leading law firm, with a presence in the Belgian market dating from 1969 and with offices in both Brussels and Antwerp. Its wide offering of specialised practices, ranging from corporate and banking to IP/TMT and tax, means that the firm provides market-leading advice across the full spectrum of legal specialities.

As set out above, IP matters in Belgium are conducted before specialised courts (see 2.3 Courts with Jurisdiction).

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including mediation and arbitration, can be used for the resolution of patent disputes, but in practice this only rarely happens (see 9 Alternative Dispute Resolution).

There are a few institutions (other than specialised courts) with certain expertise in the field of resolving patent disputes, eg CEPANI (ie, the Belgian institution for arbitration and mediation), WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center and International Chamber of Commerce.
