The contractual relationship client–lawyer exists as between the client and the individual lawyer in the cooperation. Only this lawyer shall be potentially liable towards the client. Each lawyer in the cooperation carries professional liability insurance for any breach of duty or negligence vis-à-vis the client. The liability of any lawyer in the cooperation is limited to the effective payment (minus costs of defense) by the insurer. A higher limit may be agreed upon if expressly so requested by the client and the lawyer’s consent to such higher limit shall derive only from an express confirmation in writing from the lawyer. An insurance certificate is available at first request, with no charge. The relationship with the client is governed by Belgian law (with exclusion of any further reference – renvoi – to the laws of another country through the application of any rule of Private International Law). In case of any dispute, whatever its nature and origin, exclusive jurisdiction is conferred upon the Brussels Courts, to the exclusion of any other court even in the event of a claim for indemnity, to hold harmless or any other claim by a third party, lis pendens, related actions, or any other procedural incident.
