Belgium > Commercial, corporate and M&A

ALTIUS provides clients with a ‘high-quality service’ in connection with mid-market M&A transactions, with a strong track record of advising on both domestic and cross-border transactions, corporate restructurings and reorganisations, and private equity investments. The practice profits from the firm’s in-house tax, employment, finance, and litigation capabilities, which enable the team to advise on acquisition financing matters, complex due diligence questions, and post-acquisition disputes, particularly in the retail, energy, and TMT spaces. Tom Vantroyen, who co-leads the practice with restructuring and M&A specialists Marie Brasseur and Jérôme Vermeylen, is particularly noted for his advice on joint ventures and private equity deals.

Belgium > Private equity

Belgian-based private equity and venture capital clients as well as international funds such as Platinum Equity instruct ALTIUS to advise on the domestic due diligence and negotiation aspects of cross-border buyouts and investments, relying also on the team’s integrated expertise across tax, regulatory, and financing matters. In addition to its transactional expertise, the team routinely advises international clients on the set-up of new Belgium-based fund structures. Tom Vantroyen and Marie Brasseur are key contacts for corporate matters, while Audrey Zegers is recommended for her financing expertise.
