Corporate practice

All lawyers in the firm regularly work in corporate matters, and have represented clients in all major industry sectors, including real estate, financial services, manufacturing, energy and infrastructure, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, consumer products and retail, food and beverage, media and marketing communications, and telecommunications.

Our transactional practice in that field covers the whole range of legal services that sellers or purchasers of Belgian companies (whether listed or not) may require. Our role thus typically includes the following services:

  • classical M&A work (due diligence, preparation and negotiation of the sale documentation) in asset and stock deals;
  • organization of joint ventures;
  • acquisition/sale of equity participations by private equity and venture capital funds;
  • minority investments;
  • corporate restructurings;
  • preparation and negotiation of shareholder agreements; and,
  • assistance in the organization of IPOs , de-listings, or public take-over bids.

In addition, we provide on an on-going basis assistance to corporations or shareholders with respect to a variety of issues arising under company law (with a particular focus on compliance issues for listed companies, stock options programs, conflicts among shareholders, and corporate governance issues).

We finally represent corporate clients in commercial transactions and disputes, mainly in relation to distribution agreements and real estate transactions.
