About Me

As a counsel in the Brussels' Corporate & Finance group, I have expertise in the fields of corporate, financial and commercial law, with a strong focus on M&A, restructurings and investments.

Examples include private equity and venture capital transactions but also impact funding and strategic acquisitions, as well as advising clients on (sustainable) governance and shareholders' cooperation, and dealing with directors' liability issues. Other fields I'm passionate about are business contracts, financial services and capital markets transactions.

I also regularly intervene in litigation proceedings or as a conference speaker in my areas of practice, and am the author of many in-depth publications in reputed legal journals and books.

Recently appointed as 'scientific collaborator' at the university of UCLouvain, I am, amongst others, currently co-authoring the new edition of a Belgian reference book on company law : Précis de droit des sociétés.

The languages I am equally comfortable with are French, Dutch and English.

As a lawyer since more than a decade, my leitmotif is to think out of the box while remaining surgical in all circumstances. Each case is different, but deserves to be handled with the same enthusiasm, curiosity and creativity.
