Upon request, SHEGEL can bow on its (inter)national network of legal and other subcontractors. If required, SHEGEL can make suggestions to its client to hire specialized legal or other subcontractors such as lawyers, specialist consultants and other service providers in various jurisdictions.
SHEGEL is thus NOT a law firm and will in no event exercise the reserved activities of any (Belgian or other) privileged profession but does strive towards a fruitful collaboration with such professions.

SHEGEL does therefore not act as a lawyer but will collaborate, manage and coordination the relationship between the external lawyer and SHEGEL as client’s representative.
