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 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:
