Stan Brijs and Sophie Jacmain, partners in our Litigation and Arbitration practice and restructuring and insolvency specialists, were recently interviewed in Trends, the Belgian business and finance weekly, about liberal professionals facing bankruptcy due to a drop in economy activity as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.
