Simont Braun has a solid reputation in Belgium, and internationally, for being thorough, resourceful, and uncompromising on quality. The firm stays on top of market trends and emerging industries, and in 2021 it established a multidisciplinary team dedicated to the gaming industry, with the goal of providing vital support to rights holders in this arena. It has a strong presence in the telecommunications space, and of late all three ranked practitioners – Eric De Gryse, Emmanuel Cornu, and Fernand de Visscher – have been supporting ASSIA, a commercial company connected to Stanford University and owner of many standard essential patents, in proceedings against Nokia and Proximus. “Their advice on procedural and strategic issues is brilliant, and they are always eager to dive into the scientific aspects of each case. The trio are excellent team players, work to a quick turnaround time, and the quality and clarity of their guidance is great. They are absolutely brilliant and a delight to work with.”
