YOUR LEGAL AND TAX EXPERTS
 
The law firm DE BROECK - VAN LAERE & Partners, with offices in Brussels, Ghent and Antwerp, has grown, since 1998, into a professional and dynamic team of lawyers offering companies and private individuals integrated legal services ranging from compliance to consulting and litigation, led by the following partners: Leo De Broeck, Didier Van Laere, Jan Van Camp, Bart Coopman and Marc Quaghebeur.

In contrast to traditional law firms, we work as tax "business lawyers" and estate planners and consider companies and their managers and bankers and notaries to be our principal client group.

Our objective is to find tailor-made and pragmatic solutions, while paying special attention to quality and strategic insight.

Our law office is based on two complementary pillars:
 
the Tax Department

the Corporate Department

Our specialist and academic know-how and the permanent synergy between both departments are undeniably one of the firm's strongest assets and are conducive to the settlement of cases.

In order to optimise the services provided to our growing client base, we strive to enhance our knowledge of the law continually by teaching seminars, actively taking part in academic activities and contributing to frequently to books and magazines in our area of specialisation.

Zich kunnen verdedigen tegen de fiscus werd als zo fundamenteel beschouwd dat er geen financiële barrières mochten zijn.
