Tax

Within: Tax

Eubelius' Wouter Claes and counsel Korneel Decroix 'provide tax advice in a pragmatic manner', and are experienced in assisting corporate clients with the direct and indirect tax aspects of M&A and real estate transactions. Aside from real estate, Decroix (who is particularly noted for his expertise in complex VAT issues) undertakes work for clients in the public, healthcare and not-for-profit sectors. Another key figure at the firm is tax litigator Svjatoslav Gnedasj, who joined in January 2018 from Linklaters, and co-heads the practice with Claes. A recent highlight for the team involved assisting Triple Living with the tax aspects of its acquisition of Land Invest Group.
