With Baker McKenzie CVBA/SCRL‘s Belgian practice forming a key part of a wider global network, clients are well served in the full range of domestic and cross-border tax matters. Led by Alain Huyghe, who has a first-rate reputation and is the chairman of the Belgian branch of the International Fiscal Association, the team advises Belgian and multinational companies on inbound and outbound planning strategies, tax litigation, and also matters involving an interplay between tax and private equity, as well as fund structurings. Philippe Lion‘s experience includes the tax aspects of M&A and real estate transactions. The firm is also home to a number of economists, which makes it effective in assessing transfer pricing issues; Géry Bombeke is the head of the Belgian transfer pricing practice. Other notable individuals are Luc Meeus and senior associate Thomas Gernay, who assisted M80 Capital with the tax issues associated with the structuring and establishment of a €100m private equity fund in 2018.
