Mergers & Acquisitions

Some of our lawyers have more than 20 years of experience in negotiating M&A transactions, whether in Belgium or at an international level. Our lawyers have assisted sellers and buyers in various industries, such as retail, ICT, energy, banking and finance, insurance. The range of our practice is broad and goes from very large multi-jurisdictional transactions on shares to disposal of individual assets or enterprises (“fonds de commerce / handelszaak”). We also advise the various parties involved in public take-overs.

Our tax specialist can provide input into our M&A transactions so that we can advise our clients on the structure of deals from various relevant angles.

Private Equity (PE) rebounded spectacularly ever since the financial crisis, and it is growing at an unprecedented rate. Today, PE is one of the largest and most important asset classes on the market. The PE industry is indeed flourishing with an ever-increasing amount of “dry powder” (i.e., unvested capital) that is expected to reach US$1 trillion by the end of 2017.

Trust is the cornerstone of every M&A transaction. As an agent of trust and a nearly unalterable, decentralized system that implements, verifies and records transactions, blockchain can expand the current M&A market by introducing trust.

On 26 September 2017, the French government approved the merger between French high-speed train manufacturers Alstom and the German group Siemens.

Following the formation of a new federal government in 2011, Belgium has been under less pressure from the financial markets in 2012. However, the Belgian government will continue to closely monitor its budget, as would any other EU Member State. In this light, there has been an important stream of new restrictive tax and social legislation entering into force at the beginning of and throughout 2012. Obviously, the eurozone crisis was and remains the most important factor for cautiousness regarding the Belgian M&A market.
