Testimonials

Tiberghien is a very well-known tax law firm in Belgium, with whom I am pleased to work with. They are excellent in their practice and very reactive.’

‘Emilie Van Goisenhoven is a partner with who I work a lot, since she both deals with French and Belgium questions. She is very precise, and she is totally fluent in French, English and Dutch.’

‘As a specialised tax firm they can provide for each type of tax matter, a true specialist.’

‘Both Vincent Vercauteren and Ben Van Vlierden are experienced tax litigators. In addition to this they are also able to translate this litigation experience into hands-on and to the point tax advice, in order to anticipate and avoid possible tax disputes in the most complex matters.’

‘The team is always available to react quickly to requests and has a wide range of skills, technical but also emotional intelligence to approach clients from a practical angle and to give personalised advice directly applicable to their environment.’

‘They are thorough, creative and pro-active.’

Ben Van Vlierden is outstanding. I really appreciate his broad tax knowledge, his capacity to immediately assess and advise without lengthy and costly written advice. He can easily make the bridge to accounting and pure legal issues related to some tax queries. He also has good language skills (besides Dutch also English and French) which is really a plus when there are meetings with colleagues.

‘The team at Tiberghien are exceptional and their knowledge of Belgian tax issues unrivalled. They are also extremely user-friendly. Aside from tax, they are capable of taking on complex cross-border litigation covering both civil law and common law jurisdictions.’
