Family Owned Business & Private Wealth
Managing family owned business and private wealth requires a multidisciplinary and bespoke approach. It is equally important to thoroughly understand what makes family owned businesses, their shareholders and managers so particular in order to come up with pragmatic and well-balanced solutions. When elaborating on a possible solution, we always take all interests (and sometimes divergent) at stake into account in order to consolidate your wealth on the long term.

Our Family Owned Business & Private Wealth team is composed of expert attorneys in civil and tax law. They assist our clients in a holistic and sustainable way at each stage of their development. In their business, we assist them in all matters related to tax structuring and possible investments (eg, in real estate or private equity). When it goes about their private wealth, we answer all their questions related to possible optimisation, pensions, wedding contract, donations, investments and transfers.
We assist individuals (company director, shareholder and pater familias) as well as intermediaries such as private banks, fiduciaries and family offices. Our team operates from Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Outside our four home markets, we regularly work with foreign law firms and are therefore in position to handle any cross-border matters.
