The increasing globalisation has not only a huge impact on everyday life but also on legal practice, since crossborder cases are getting more and more common. Avolink is a cooperation of medium-sized law firms supporting one another in the representation of the interests of clients in national and international matters. The aim of the cooperation is to connect clients and lawyers from all over to grant quality professional legal advice wherever a client needs it.
For more than 30 years, Avolink has been an efficient alliance of national lawyers associations. With Avolink Belgium (and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg), Avolink France, Avolink Germany, Avolink Netherlands,
well covering up the legal districts of their respective countries, the association is already impressively spread out in the heart of productive Europe. At present, we are also represented in several other countries such as Estonia, Italy, Spain, Iran, Poland, Belarus, Greece with the aim of soon covering up the most significant countries in Europe and worldwide.
What make us different from other networks is that we offer our clients and partners not only the possibility to find qualified, well-known and tested lawyers in each country, but a very unique wide and widespread choice of lawyers in the territory for what concerns Belgium, France, Germany, Luxemburg and the Netherlands, so that you’ll find the right lawyer exactly where you need it.
When advising clients, we attach great importance to professional and high-quality legal advice. Therefore, the members are assigned to specific areas of law. This guarantees professional legal advice in as many areas of law as possible.
Within the association, we value personal interaction and discussion between the members. Therefore, we regularly organise virtual as well as personal meetings holding technical seminaries. The joint experience of our members and their commitment to enhance the professional skills allows them to achieve excellence for themselves and their clients.

What our clients say about us
The cooperation with the French offices is running smoothly. The relationship between Jan Leysen and his international colleagues makes cooperation easy. They also immediately know we expect quality.
The only thing that remains is for me to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your human approach and expertise. I also want to thank you for the fact that you were so easily to get in contact with during this entire period for all advice, including by telephone and by mail. I want you to know that you both really made a difference in my life, and what I can still make of it … Thank you very much for that. Still, I hope I never need you again, but if someone else is in that case, I will recommend you and your Truyens lawyers firm. Thanks again.
Direct and practical approach, good communication and agreements. Truyens Advocaten offers exceptionally good service and achieves results.
Thanks for the pragmatic advice and your motivation to find a solution that both parties could agree with, rather than letting ourselves get drowned in legal procedures with a lot of uncertainty.
