Corporate law

Our corporate team is specialised in national and international mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, joint ventures, strategic alliances and restructurings, more particularly in the IT market.

Our corporate law team has extensive experience in advising and supporting shareholders, such as strategic parties, private equity and venture capital, enterprises, directors and other stakeholders, all of this characterised by quality, pro-activity and a pragmatic approach. Because of our experiences with both purchasing and selling parties, we take the different legal and commercial interests of parties into consideration.

Key element in our fields of expertise is special interest in and knowledge of the IT market. To be able to offer the highest quality of legal services, we advise our clients with a focus on this expertise. If a client needs advice on another field of law, we can rely on qualified colleagues in our network, so that the idea of a “one-stop-shop” is guaranteed.
