Our estate law and wealth planning team provides counselling and assistance on family and marital property structures, estate and wealth planning for private individuals and governance of family businesses.

The team has gained extensive expertise in management, planning and setting up of agreements and structures, as well as in negotiating solutions for disputes arising upon liquidation of estates and, where need be, in defending the position of its clients in litigation.

Many cases have international aspects (often complex), and as a result our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of private international law issues in connection with all aspects of estate law.

Eubelius is Belgium’s largest independent law firm. Our 22 partners, 14 (senior) counsels and almost 100 associates offer unique expertise and experience in all areas of business law.

We offer counselling and representation on Belgian and European Union law. We have privileged working relationships with outstanding independent law firms in many foreign jurisdictions. Our practice has a distinctly international focus. We serve a very diverse client base, ranging from Fortune 500 multinationals to local entrepreneurs, a large number of companies with public law status, and numerous Belgian companies which are part of large international groups.

We represent all Belgian language communities and handle matters in English, Dutch, French and German.

We have offices in Brussels, Kortrijk and Antwerp. With approximately 50 support staff, a proprietary knowledge management system, a well-equipped legal library and a state-of-the-art ICT platform, we combine the advantages of a flexible organisation with a size that allows us to deliver services of the highest quality.
