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.
