"Clients highlight the team's 'dedication, knowledge, availability and business sense" - Chambers & Partners


Combining a personal and pragmatic approach

Our services will ensure your tax and legal solutions, both personal and business, are up to date and place you in the strongest position possible. We also work with you to facilitate a smooth transfer of your (family owned) company to the next generation, without disrupting the continuity of your business. We always give consideration to your individual circumstances and understand that these decisions are often as personal as they are practical.


We take a co-operative and forward-thinking approach, anticipating social dynamics, and help you to make the right choices. This also applies to our services for family offices, private bankers, (family) foundations and (family) trusts.

More than 100 years of expertise

We offer a unique, fully-integrated collaboration between tax advisers, civil law notaries, and lawyers. We find solutions to your questions using a multi-discipline approach, independent from accountants. We draw on specialist tax and legal knowledge of the regulations in our four home markets (the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland) and our global (business) network. We work with you to transform your complex tax and legal issues into pragmatic solutions, aiming to build long-term client relationships founded on mutual trust (trusted adviser).

  • Tax and legal structuring of your family owned business;
