Governance and regulatory matters

We are a standing adviser on a vast variety of general corporate law and governance matters, such as the preparation of corporate policies, corporate governance charters and dealing codes, and in connection with shareholder engagement and directors’ duties and liability. We assist clients in matters pertaining to information and transparency requirements, and compliance with insider trading and market manipulation rules. Our team has developed extensive expertise regarding all aspects of (variable and/or share based) remuneration for board members and senior management.

Our experts also frequently act as independent legal experts or advisers to committees of independent directors advising on related-party transactions.

Our firm has helped numerous new board members and corporate secretaries get up to speed with the challenging Belgian legal framework for listed companies, relying on the combined in‑the‑field and academic expertise of our attorneys.
