Multinational businesses are in need of advisors who are familiar with the local Belgian market as well as the international context they operate in.
As a firm specialised in tax law, Tiberghien has laid claim to a unique position in the Belgian market, employing around seventy lawyers in Belgium and Luxembourg who allow us to tap into a large array of ‘critical mass’, so we can always assign a specialist with extensive expertise in their field to our clients’ cases. This in turn makes for the most sustainable and reliable solutions to the tax issues (multinational) businesses are confronted with, no matter how complex they may be. It goes without saying that we closely follow-up all legislative developments in Belgium and assess the consequences, risks or opportunities, they may entail for (multinational) businesses. Due to our reputation, we are moreover a trusted party in the eyes of local tax authorities.
Not only in Belgium, but also internationally, Tiberghien is a valued partner in advice, a status confirmed by our TIER1 ranking in the Legal500, for instance. In our practice, we combine solid expertise in the area of Belgian tax legislation with an international perspective, continuously following up any international developments of importance to (multinational) businesses. Some of our lawyers are furthermore reputed specialists in international and European tax law as well as cross-border transactions.
Undoubtedly, one of Tiberghien’s strengths is its multidisciplinary and tailored approach: as we have specialists in truly every field of expertise in tax law, we can put together an appropriate team that is capable of working towards the ‘right’ solution(s) in any case. Our multidisciplinary approach stretches past the boundaries of tax law. Sustainable tax solutions go hand in hand with correct economic analysis. This is why we have joined forces with Tiberghien economics, a firm providing services in the field of transfer pricing, valuations, business modelling and legal economics. We also build our sustainable tax solutions on solid legal advice. To that end, we have joined forces with Altius, an independent Belgian law firm specialised in (non-fiscal) business law. Finally, as an independent firm, Tiberghien can rely on an extensive international network and a strong presence in the Benelux.
