[The term “Tribunal commercial” (French) and “Rechtbank van koophandel” (Flemish) are equivalent. Both occupy a position in the Belgian court hierarchy equivalent to that of a U.S. federal district court. For case presentation purposes, the abbreviation “Rb” is used to refer to both courts. “Hof” is a designation used to identify an appellate court of Belgium.]
