Integrated approach

Our Family Owned Business & Private Wealth team is composed of expert attorneys in civil and tax law. They assist our clients in a holistic and sustainable way at each stage of their development. In their business, we assist them in all matters related to tax structuring and possible investments (eg, in real estate or private equity). When it goes about their private wealth, we answer all their questions related to possible optimisation, pensions, wedding contract, donations, investments and transfers.

Multidisciplinary team

We assist individuals (company director, shareholder and pater familias) as well as intermediaries such as private banks, fiduciaries and family offices. Our team operates from Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Outside our four home markets, we regularly work with foreign law firms and are therefore in position to handle any cross-border matters.

How can we help you?

For any questions related to your family owned business or your private wealth, you can count on the expertise of our team members. They can answer all questions and provide complete and bespoke solutions. They advise on the best choice to make, assist at implementation stage and, if needed, ask for rulings and negotiate with the competent authorities. They draft contracts implementing the decisions taken and defend our clients’ interest before courts. They handle all compliance related matters and take care of corporate and personal income tax returns.
