Public service law & disciplinary law
Van Goethem Law is well-known for its detailed knowledge and years of experience in public service law. Our firm advises clients on the legal status of both statutory and contractual public servants, and has mastered all aspects of employment in government, education and with the police. It also has in-depth expertise concerning evaluations, and conducts proceedings before administrative courts and courts of justice.
Our lawyers are also well informed on all aspects of disciplinary law. This is quite formalistic by nature, and many procedures are often nullified due to a procedural defect. Thus, governments and individual civil servants regularly call upon our experts , who guide them with expertise and if required defend them before bodies such as the Council of State or the Appeal Commission for disciplinary cases.
