Treatment of files
Each file is treated under the supervision of a partner of S.C. Delacroix& Partners, which can be assisted by another lawyer from the firm.
Payment of invoices
Invoices are due upon receipt in euros without any type of deduction or retention. In case of non-payment within a delay of 30 days, as from the date of issuance, they will be increased with the legal interest on arrears rate. We reserve the right to suspend our services, provided prior written notification.
Our deontology rules are accessible, with either the French or German speaking Bar (www.avocat.be), the Flemish speaking Bar (Orde van Vlaamse Balies) (www.advocaat.be), the French speaking order of the Brussels Bar (l’Ordre français des avocats du Barreau de Bruxelles) (www.barreaudebruxelles.be) or the Flemish speaking order of the Brussels Bar (www.baliebrussel.be).
S.C. Delacroix & Partners, its partners, associates and staff’s liability in the execution of their mission towards a client for a specific case is limited to the totality of the fees paid for that case.

Depending on the lawyer, the civil liability will be insured by the insurance company selected by either the order of French and German speaking Bar or the order of the Dutch speaking Bar.
The insurance policy will be transferred upon first request.
