Robrecht Coppens - Loyens & Loeff

Within: Private equity

Loyens & Loeff provides ‘a very good and commercially minded service’ to its clients, which include leading Belgium, Benelux and international private equity houses. In recent developments, the firm established a multidisciplinary and cross-office start-up team in 2016, headed by senior associate Robrecht Coppens. It also has a strong track record in venture capital transactions. Its capacity to advise on fund formation and structuring, through its cooperation with the firm’s Benelux funds practice, is another distinguishing feature. A team led by Grégoire Jakhian and Wim Vande Velde recently assisted new client Iconiq Capital with an investment in Belgian company Collibra. Other clients include Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, Lion Capital and Doughty Hanson. Stefaan Deckmyn heads the practice.
