Godfried Ampe - Loyens & Loeff

Within: Commercial, corporate and M&A

The 'business-minded' corporate and M&A practice group at Loyens & Loeff 'combines quality work' with 'a proactive and pragmatic' approach. In a transaction led by practice head Grégoire Jakhian, the team assisted Gener8 Maritime on its merger with Euronav. The department was also instructed by CTH on its acquisition of Ferrara Candy Company from L Catterton, including on the structure of the deal across Belgium, the US and Luxembourg. In another work highlight, a team including 'pragmatic' senior associate Robrecht Coppens, who attracts praise for his 'very solid technical background', advised General Electric Company on the Belgian aspects of the global restructuring of its oil and gas business. Peter Callens has considerable experience handling domestic and international transactions. The 'efficient, result-oriented' Wim Vande Velde and Godfried Ampe are also key names to note, particularly for real estate and energy sector matters respectively. Stefan Deckmyn left the firm for an in-house role.
