Miles Legal : A Step Ahead
Our lawyers all specialize in specific legal areas that they teach or in which they publish. They are constantly updating their knowledge. This perfect management of these specific legal areas goes together with a profound knowledge of the environment and practical needs of our clients.
The interesting ecological and societal changes and challenges means a lot to Miles. Economic actors as well as other actors of our society are responsible for the environment. The lawyers of Miles take Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) very seriously. Therefore, we are committed to the goals of sustainable development (SDG).

No internal costs (scanning, printing, invoicing, dispatch of non-registered mail,...) are charged*.
In application of its CSR charter, Miles is committed to controlling its costs by avoiding the waste of consumable goods, drastically limiting printing costs and making optimal use of energy and premises.
*Some Miles Network members apply special rules in this area, which they communicate in advance.
We encode our services by 6 minutes, the lawyer of the service is always mentioned and the description of the task is specified. The details of this encoding are attached to the invoice.
The invoicing takes place monthly, so that the status of the services can be checked transparently.
In the context of specific agreements, subscription formulas or lump sum formulas can be considered.
In the event of a favourable result, a success fee may be claimed.
