Chambers Europe (Client testimonial)
Our practice, with more than 15 specialised lawyers in tax dispute resolution, is recognised as one of the leading practices in Belgium by various international legal directories and guides, such as International Tax Review, Chambers & Partners (Global and Europe editions) and Legal 500. Several of our lawyers have been individually ranked in these publications. Our clients encompass all industries, from multinational quoted companies, to individuals facing tax disputes.
