“We are pleased to have Thomas and Guillaume on board to lead the development of a dynamic tax team,” comment Béatrice Thieffry and Steven Callens, Simont Braun’s managing partners. “Their experience and ambition will be drivers to boost Simont Braun’s tax capabilities and better serve our clients.”
With their joined expertise, Simont Braun will grant its Belgian and international clients a yet more complete offer of services.
Thomas and Guillaume both bring solid experience as tax lawyers in niche and international law firms. The core of their practice lies in advising companies and entrepreneurs on the tax aspects of their day-to-day activities and in the context of restructurings, acquisitions and investments. They also assist and represent clients in tax audits and litigation matters. While Thomas has a particular focus on European and international tax matters, Guillaume has valuable expertise in wealth management.
“I am thrilled to join Simont Braun to build a strong and reliable tax practice,” comments Thomas. “I am grateful for this exciting challenge and I am delighted to take it on with Guillaume.”
“Our focus for the years to come will be to navigate through the complexity of tax law while providing our clients with practical and hands-on solutions,” says Guillaume. “This is a big step for my career and I would like to thank Simont Braun for their trust.”
The appointment of Thomas and Guillaume will further strengthen our tax capabilities in complex and strategic advisory, transactional and litigation work in a Belgian and international context.
Welcome on board!
