World Services Group (WSG)

At ALTIUS we feel responsible for the development of a fairer, more inclusive, and more sustainable society, both within and outside our firm. Therefore we conduct our business in a way that is consistent with our values.

Diversity

ALTIUS acts with integrity towards its lawyers and support teams. We foster openness and transparency at all levels within our firm. Mutual trust and respect are essential to us.

Diversity and multi-culturalism are at the heart of our business and help us to respond better to our clients’ needs. Our belief is that diversity creates a positive workforce environment and that our clients only want to work with law firms who respect their lawyers and employees and share their values.

ALTIUS is a founding member of the Legal Diversity & Inclusion Alliance (LDIA), an association created by various law firms in Belgium that aims to promote, develop and implement knowledge and best-practice exchange on diversity and inclusion. We are committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace in which everyone benefits from equal treatment and opportunities, irrespective of race, ethnic or social origin, gender or sexual orientation, age, disability, language, religion, political preference or any other grounds of personal discrimination.

We “walk the talk”. For more than 14 years, ALTIUS has been led by female managing partners. Female lawyers compose 45% of our practitioners and are well represented at all levels within the firm.

In addition, we regularly organise workshops and debates about diversity and inclusion in the workplace and never miss a chance to celebrate special days such as the International Women’s Day.

 

Society

At ALTIUS we highly value ethical entrepreneurship, not only by embracing its spirit in our daily work but also by supporting ETION, the forum for committed entrepreneurs. ETION’s values of warmth, strength, thoroughness and openness, are very much like ALTIUS’ ones. We are a proud sponsor of this organisation that supports and train entrepreneurs.

Caring for society means also caring for its less privileged members. That is why ALTIUS is a proud sponsor of several associations active in the fields of access to education (Cunina, thanks to which ALTIUS is the ‘godmother’ of 5 young girls in Uganda, Kinderarmoedefonds), research and support for children and families affected by cancer (Kinderkankerfonds, Olivia Fund, KickCancer) and culture (Friend of AB).

Via initiatives such as the Legal Run and de Warmste week we also ‘put on our running shoes’ each year to raise money for various associations.
