In addition to fundraising and mergers and acquisitions, our dynamic team advises you on the various aspects of company and association law.

We also assist you in choosing the most appropriate way to set up and organise your project and the relations between shareholders and stakeholders. This notably includes choosing the most appropriate legal form, and drafting articles of association, shareholder agreements, partnerships or joint ventures.

Widely recognised as responsive, pragmatic lawyers who are always on the lookout for the most efficient solution to achieve the objectives set by our clients, Beyond assists you in managing your obligations and formalities relating to company and association law (corporate housekeeping). In particular, we prepare your shareholders’ meetings (convening notices, minutes, special reports, etc.), any (re)structuring operation (notably mergers, demergers, etc.) and any other steps to ensure sound corporate governance that complies with the relevant regulations and recommendations.

Drawing on the experience of its clients, Beyond’s lawyers are keenly aware of the importance of good governance for the companies and associations they advise.

The firm’s pragmatic approach to finding tailor-made solutions for your business will enable you to develop your projects efficiently and over the long term with complete peace of mind.



Conflicts are inevitable in business and are likely to affect all the parties involved in a project: founders, investors, shareholders, directors, commercial partners, customers, sellers or even the buyers of a company. Although some disputes can be prevented, legal proceedings, arbitration or mediation are sometimes unavoidable. When this happens, we can help you with both straightforward and complex disputes.

Our practice, which is designed to be efficient and pragmatic, is based on your expectations, an assessment of the risks involved, a multidisciplinary approach and, if necessary, confidential negotiations and proceedings before the courts. In this way, we provide you with real strategic added value so that you can remain focused on developing your business. Our in-depth experience in criminal law is a significant asset that can make all the difference in these disputes. Our practice is further enhanced by the experience of one of our associates as a deputy judge.

Our services include the resolution of shareholder disputes, directors’ liability cases, the management of claims and disputes arising from fundraising and mergers and acquisitions, the performance or termination of commercial contracts, and the recovery of debt both in Belgium and abroad.
