It was immediately one of the bigger deals for a Belgian non-listed company.
The sale was also very complex. Not only because you have to take into account Belgian, French and Dutch law. But also because the managers of ESAS will join the Circet group.
“That’s where Monard Law really made the difference.” according to Gert (CFO of ESAS). By responding quickly and communicating very directly, we as managers always understood very well what the advantages and disadvantages were for us.
During the negotiations about the management package, it soon became clear that there was an important tax pitfall for the Belgian and Dutch colleagues. The Monard Law team was immediately expanded with additional tax expertise to give us the right advice.
This gives you peace of mind, which is an absolute added value during such an intensive deal.
Benoit, Monard Law’s partner who led this deal, agrees. It goes without saying that you deliver top quality work as a lawyer. But going the extra mile and guiding the customer in the most personal way possible, is what we want to excel at!
Glad to hear that we managed to make a difference again.
Thanks for the great teamwork Benoit Samyn, Hilde Van den Keybus, Jan Van Beers and Aline Gesquiere!
