Assistance in all corporate and M&A disputes
Our lawyers have extensive experience in all types of corporate and M&A disputes, including post-acquisition claims (e.g. disputes related to misrepresentation, breach of warranties, price adjustments and earn-outs), shareholder disputes, forced exits, securities litigation, D&O (Directors’ and Officers’) liability, shareholders’ liability and corporate governance disputes.
Representation before all judicial and arbitral powers
Our team serves privately held and public companies, financial institutions, non-profit organisations, shareholders, boards of directors, executives and other stakeholders across industries.
We act before state courts and tribunals as well as before Belgian and international arbitral tribunals and other bodies with judicial powers.
Toolbox of strategies and solutions
Our team has the experience and creativity to use a large toolbox of strategies and solutions to assist clients in addressing corporate disputes. We help clients analyse their options and customise a strategy adapted to their specific situation. In the context of judicial proceedings, this can include summary proceedings, proceedings on the merits, seizure proceedings, cease-and-desist orders, appointment of court administrators, provisional measures, etc.
Out-of-court solutions like mediation or arbitration are also increasingly preferred by companies as they have several advantages such as rapidity and confidentiality.
Holistic approach and international network
Because Simont Braun counts lawyers in almost every area of business law, we can quickly assemble a team including experts in tax, corporate, real estate, finance and other related areas to comprehensively address all issues at hand.
When questions of foreign law arise or a dispute has to be settled in a foreign court, we can call on the excellent international contacts we have through our non-exclusive networks and foreign best friends law firms.
