Mergers & Acquisitions

As M&A specialists, we have extensive experience in assisting companies with all types of M&A transactions. In addition, their in-depth (legal) expertise enables us to advise on complex transactions and to develop adequate solutions. By combining the tax-technical knowhow of Tiberghien Lawyers with the transfer pricing and valuation expertise at Tiberghien economics, we are able to come up with to-the-point and client-oriented solutions. In addition, as attorneys, we can defend your interests in discussions and/or disputes with the tax authorities.

Our M&A team disposes of sufficient ‘critical mass’, which allows us to have a specialist with extensive expertise in any domain that is crucial to the success of an M&A transaction. This enables us to analyze complex transactions efficiently and to advise the ‘right’ solution(s). We are ‘experts’ in our field of expertise, and committed to updating and developing our knowhow.

Undoubtedly, one of our strengths is our multidisciplinary approach. As a result, we can involve tax experts in real estate and real estate funds, management incentive schemes, financing etc. We can support transactions involving family businesses with our specific expertise in estate planning, and we can apply our international expertise in in advising on cross-border transactions and reorganizations.

Our multidisciplinary approach stretches past the boundaries of tax law. At Tiberghien economics, we have excellent expertise in valuation, transfer pricing and business modeling that is a key success factor in many M&A deals. As Tiberghien economics does not provide any auditing services, their independence is a considerable upside, that sets us apart from most of the typical professional service providers in the M&A environment.

We strongly believe that the combined offer of our tax-technical expertise and our deep understanding of business economics allows us to offer successful solutions to our clients.

Finally, as an independent firm, Tiberghien can rely on an extensive international network and a strong presence in the Benelux.
