Lawyer Rankings

Belgium > Commercial, corporate and M&A

Schoups demonstrates strong capabilities in both Belgian and cross-border transactions. Although it particularly distinguishes itself acting for Belgian corporates and their owners on the sell-side of deals, its team also has extensive experience of acting on the buy-side. Its team’s sector experience is particularly notable in areas such as retail, franchise and manufacturing. In 2019, the practice was strengthened by Christine Heeb‘s promotion to counsel and the arrival of Stefaan Wauman from Laurius. In a more recent development, counsel Liesbeth Truyens joined from Linklaters. Heeb and Wauman co-head the practice with Gwen Bevers.
