DS DE BACKER&BASTIN

The legal practice of DS De Backer & Bastin offers both consultancy and advisory services as well as expert help with litigation cases in the main areas of business law. The practice has earned a highly respected reputation in the business arena and amongst its peers.

It is spearheaded by a strong team of lawyers from both French-speaking and Dutch-speaking backgrounds, who also speak the other main western languages.


Right from the practice’s foundation in 1990, it has been forging strategic links with other practices internationally to achieve its aim of creating a truly worldwide presence.

In 2005, the original organisation joined forces with DS in order to strengthen its relationship with Asia.

Since then, the practice has been instrumental in helping companies develop major projects within Asia, working closely with the various DS practices based locally on that continent.

In parallel, DS De Backer & Bastin and its fellow DS participants are developing and consolidating expansion into other key locations within the European Union.
