Partners from various firms decided to launch STRELIA as a new law firm on the Belgian market as of 1 January 2013.

They were motivated by the complementarity of their practices and their individual career experiences. They have the same strong desire to provide a high quality service to their clients, while believing strongly in the need for good personal relationships with clients and in-depth understanding of their business. Equally important, they shared common personal values and knew they would work well together as a team for the benefit of their clients.

For these reasons Jean-Pierre Fierens, Olivier Clevenbergh and Benoît Malvaux became the first partners of STRELIA. They were joined a few months later by Gisèle Rosselle. Jacques Richelle joined the team in November 2014. In July 2015, Bart De Moor and his team reinforced STRELIA.

The partners were also joined by a team of associates and trainees.

The name “STRELIA” was chosen from the Spanish and Portuguese word “estrel(l)a” meaning “star”. We do not consider ourselves as stars but we strongly believe that our role as a law firm is, like a star, to enlighten and guide our clients through the - sometimes complex - legal aspects of their transactions and disputes.
