ALTIUS

In global M&A and capital markets, private equity is a major driver. Operating in a rapidly changing, complex, and highly competitive market, private equity investors need lawyers who can help them navigate through legal complexities and provide guidance to reach practical solutions.

At ALTIUS, we feel that nowadays clients want rapid and concise legal advice and, even more than in the past, expect their lawyers to assist them to make strategic decisions. Our assistance is practical, pro-active and always aimed at improving the business of our clients. We have a commercial approach and provide our clients with clear advice at an affordable cost.

ALTIUS’ Corporate Finance team has extensive experience in private equity and venture capital transactions. We advise clients at all stages, from establishing the fund and making investments, to ongoing portfolio assistance including restructuring advice, to exiting from those investments.

A private equity deal may also raise challenges related to finance, anti-trust, regulatory, real estate, employment and intellectual property law. Being one of the largest full-service independent law firms in Belgium, we have expertise in all these areas.

For all tax related issues, ALTIUS works closely with Tiberghien, a leading independent Belgian firm specializing in tax law and estate planning.

The ALTIUS / Tiberghien alliance recieved the “Best Benelux Law Firm Gold Award” for 2012, awarded by the jury of the International Legal Alliance Summit Awards (ILASA).
ALTIUS (in co-operation with Tiberghien) is ‘one of the best firms, in terms of competence, pleasantness and speed of response’. – Legal 500, 2012
