AKD boasts one of the largest administrative law teams in the Benelux. Do you need to file a request for information from a public authority? Are you embroiled in a dispute over subsidies or in charge of maintaining public order? Then AKD is the right partner for you.

We advise and litigate on behalf of the public sector and semi-public institutions as well as on behalf of companies.

A full-service firm, AKD is able to muster all the expertise needed to tackle every administrative dispute imaginable, ranging from local and provincial government law to water authorities legislation, from tax law and administrative fines to obligations to tolerate, and from orders subject to penalties and administrative coercion to municipal measures in the social domain.

While general administrative law is the general springboard for many cases, each of our lawyers works from a specialist niche. For example, we have lawyers specialising in economic administrative law, the issues surrounding "scarce permits” or municipal cooperation and redivision. Contracting with the public sector, at the interface between contract law and administrative law, is a special area of attention at AKD.

Our wealth of expertise enables us to handle the largest and most complex cases while offering top quality. Our lawyers keep up with developments and enhance their specialist knowledge all the time, regularly publishing articles in scientific and other journals or acting as editors of professional publications.
