Deminor is an organisation that defends the interests of thousands of private and institutional investors as well as small and large corporations who have suffered losses caused by fraud, misleading information, violations of competition law, breach of contract, tort or other types of misconduct.
Without our intervention our clients would often not be in a position to recover their losses. Values such as access to justice, fair justice, good governance, transparency, equal treatment and solidarity are the main drivers of our daily activities. These values inspire us outside of our work environment as well. In the true spirit of sharing, Deminor believes that part of the fruits of its activities must be used to support charity projects carried out by members of its team.
Deminor is very proud to continue its unique charitable partnership with MIMA (the Millennium Iconoclast Museum of Art located in Brussels), to enable 1,000 school children to visit this iconic museum during the school year 2021-2022.
Now in its third year, Deminor has been able to help schools in Brussels overcome their increasing budget restrictions, which have limited the number and variety of off-site activities that pupils can engage within.
The MIMA is an art initiative that provides artists from the street art scene with a platform to meet new audiences. The MIMA is located in Molenbeek, a district of Brussels known for its multi-cultural society.
Through Deminor’s financial and creative support, schoolchildren from this district and beyond gain the opportunity to discover, explore and constructively interact in ways that would otherwise not be available to them, which not only helps them with their school learning, but also opens their minds to potential career and life choices.
Private community partnerships, such as this, are something that the entire team of Deminor are passionate about, as Edouard Fremault, Chief Strategy Officer for Deminor, explains:
“We are so pleased to be supporting this unique initiative again. Hearing back from the teachers and the children to understand how valuable, and potentially life-changing, these trips can be is so rewarding. Our goal is to spread the word and highlight to other companies the importance of building similar relationships within their communities, and by doing so, help to influence and inspire the next generation of people coming into our workforce.”
Being a champion of good causes has always been core to the DNA of Deminor, most notably demonstrated through the origination of the company’s name, which was derived from the French ‘défense des minoritaires’, reflecting its origins in providing services to minority shareholders.
Deminor is still very much defined by the pursuit of good causes and its determination to restore justice to those who lack the resources to defend themselves.
Values such as access to justice, fair justice, good governance, transparency, equal treatment and solidarity are the main drivers of our daily activities. These values inspire us outside of our work environment as well. In the true spirit of sharing, Deminor believes that part of the fruits of its activities must be used to support charity projects carried out by members of its team.
This is one of several ESG initiatives that Deminor is committed to, and we look forward to sharing updates on these in the very near future.

The Deminor team carried out painting works in the building of Entraides, saving them an important budget that they would otherwise have had to spend on executing the works.
In 2018, the Deminor team prepared and delivered food boxes to the homeless refugees at the Brussels North Station.
In 2017, Edouard Fremault, CSO, ran the New York City Marathon in order to collect funds to support the NGO “Every Mother Counts” in its fight for making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every women on earth. Deminor supported his initiative through a donation to the organisation.
“Face for Children in Need” (FACE) is a Belgian NGO that aims at assisting and protecting orphans and street children, as well as their families and communities in Egypt, regardless of race, culture or religion.
Deminor participated to the fundraising organised by a member of its staff (Jean-Philippe Timmermans, Head of Back Office) as part of his participation to the Marathon des Sables 2015 (taking place in the Sahara desert) in favour of FACE.
