As a member of the Real Estate practice group in our Brussels office, Lien developed extensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of private real estate law. The scope of her work ranges from advice to litigation, including negotiations and the drafting of legal documentation. Lien is frequently involved in real estate transactions (both asset and share deals) and development projects, managing the deals from the initial offer to closing.

Lien has developed particular experience in property law, with a focus on complex rights in rem structures. The past year, she focused on the important reform of property law in Belgium that entered into force on 1 September 2021 and the main changes of the reform with regard to the usufruct right, the long-term lease right and the right to build in commercial real estate transactions. Together with Ariane Brohez, Lien authored the book on the reform of property law (in Dutch) "Vruchtgebruik, erfpacht en opstal onder het nieuwe goederenrecht" published by Wolters Kluwer Belgium Legal. 

Christophe Laurent, Head of the Real Estate Practice Group of Loyens & Loeff Belgium: “We are proud to support Lien in her new role and wish her a lot of success on her journey ahead. Her expertise, knowledge, commitment and contagious enthusiasm have become indispensable in our Real Estate team and a crucial differentiator in the relationship with our clients.”

Ariane Brohez, Partner in the Real Estate Practice Group of Loyens & Loeff Belgium: “I congratulate Lien with this new step in her career. I am convinced that Lien will continue to fully thrive as a very valuable asset within the team and I look forward to further developing our Real Estate practice with her in the years to come.”
