Fortis

The Fortis case shocked Europe in 2008. In the middle of the subprime crisis, Fortis collapsed resulting in a dismantling operation organized by the Governments of the Netherlands, Belgian and Luxemburg. SQ was the first law firm who deposited a criminal complaint by shareholders, represented by SQ founding partner Geert Lenssens. SQ conducted many litigations which contributed to a final settlement of 1.3 billion Euro. All shareholders represented by SQ accepted the settlement in which they obtained awards as active claimants.
