Partner appointment at Cresco

Cresco is thrilled to announce that Steven Daems will join the partnership, effective as of 2022.

The partner appointment significantly strengthens the firm’s Dispute Resolution Group. Steven has been with the firm since its inception and is an expe­ri­enced lit­i­ga­tor with a focus on cor­po­rate lit­i­ga­tion, com­mer­cial dis­putes and insol­ven­cy pro­ce­dures. 

His additional expertise as a cor­po­rate trans­ac­tion­al­ist allows him to pro­vide clients with a 360° guid­ance in all dis­putes per­tain­ing to the cor­po­rate life­cy­cle, rang­ing from incor­po­ra­tion and cor­po­rate struc­tur­ing over to con­tract­ing, (inter­nal) com­pli­ance and oper­a­tional legal sup­port, all the way through to restruc­tur­ing, liq­ui­da­tion and bankruptcy.

Steven’s assis­tance ranges from pre-lit­i­ga­tion guid­ance, set­tle­ment nego­ti­a­tions to assis­tance dur­ing share­hold­ers’ and board of direc­tors’ meet­ings as well as rep­re­sen­ta­tion in front of Bel­gian courts and arbi­tral tribunals. 

We are honored to welcome Steven to the partner team and for him to take a leading role within the firm and Cresco’s growing dispute resolution team, and we are certain that he will continue to serve as trusted counsel to our clients. 

Olivier Van Raemdonck, Partner, adds: “From the inception of Cresco we have been committed to offer our clients dispute resolution capabilities, alongside our transactional and operational legal expertise, and are very pleased for Steven to lead and grow the dispute resolution practice.”
