Liability

Oswell & Vahida is a lawyer’s grouping (“groupement d’avocats”) under Belgian law, notified to the Brussels Bar.  Its members are individual lawyers acting through their personal limited liability companies (Belgian “sprl” or equivalent) and cooperating, as may be needed, with other, independent, lawyers on an “Of Counsel” or a correspondent (“correspondant organique”) basis, in line with applicable bar rules.

 

The use of the name "Oswell & Vahida" and words or phrases such as "firm", "law firm" or "legal practice" is for convenience only and does not imply that any of Oswell & Vahida’s lawyers are in partnership together or accept responsibility for the acts or omissions of each other. Subject to this proviso, legal responsibility for the provision of services to clients is defined in engagement terms entered into between clients and the relevant Oswell & Vahida lawyer or its personal limited liability company, and these should be relied upon in determining liability for the services provided. Absent the explicit agreement and consent of both entities involved, no Oswell & Vahida lawyer is responsible for the acts or omissions of, nor has any authority to obligate or otherwise bind, any other Oswell & Vahida lawyer or its personal limited liability company.
 

The liability of Oswell & Vahida and its lawyers for any loss or damage suffered as a result of professional negligence or other breach of contract shall, unless the loss or damage was occasioned intentionally or through gross negligence, in respect of each engagement or individual project within a framework engagement, be limited to the sum covered by the mandatory professional indemnity insurance of the Brussels Bar, currently capped at €2,500,000. 

 

Oswell & Vahida and its lawyers shall not have any liability for any loss or damage suffered as a result of the use by a client or any third party of Oswell & Vahida’s work products or advice in any other context or for any other purpose than for which it was given. 

Oswell & Vahida shall not be held liable for any damages arising out of any direct or indirect use of this website, the information made available on or via this website, its interruption (even as a result of a serious fault), electronic viruses or bugs, "Trojan horses," or electronic communications via this website (e.g., e-mails), or interceptions or manipulations by third parties of such communications.
