N°02

Corporate Law

From the creation of your company, during its existence and at its end: at Corbus, we provide specialized assistance during all phases of corporate life, both for small local companies and for large multinational corporations.

N°03

Real estate law

Corbus offers specialized legal assistance to maximize the value of your real estate. Whether assisting with the purchase and sale of real estate, advising on apartment legislation or leasing real estate, at Corbus we offer the advice you need. Corbus has been assisting several major real estate brokerage networks, reputable construction companies and property developers for many years, and thus has all the necessary real estate expertise.

N°04

Environmental Law

The increasing focus on environmental protection means that national and European legislation is constantly changing and becoming more complex. We follow these changes closely, enabling us to provide you with up-to-date practical advice. Furthermore, we are happy to assist you in your consultations with the competent environmental and urban planning departments and authorities, and, if necessary, conduct the required procedures before the administrative appeal bodies and courts.

N°05

Employment law

A company’s “human capital” is becoming increasingly important. A conflict with an employee or employee representatives can thoroughly disrupt the proper functioning of a company. Balancing the protection of the employee with the employer’s ability to conduct its economic activities with the necessary flexibility is essential. We advice both employers and employees at the pre-contractual stage, during employment and at the termination of the employment relationship.

For legal assistance in other areas of expertise, we cooperate with specialists in the field, both at home and abroad. For traffic law, liability law and insurance law, we work with Sofie Naeyaert (Gent, Zuidstationstraat 21 – sofie.naeyaert@advocaat.be). With 15 years of experience, e.g. in cases for public transport companies and utility companies, Sofie has extensive expertise in these matters. Are you looking for legal advice for activities outside Belgium, or do you have a dispute abroad? Thanks to our extensive experience, we have built up good personal relationships with many mid-sized law firms both in Europe and beyond. For example, Corbus is the Belgian partner in “e-iure”, a network of business-orientated law firms spread over Europe, the USA, South America, Asia and Australia. Partners in this network collaborate actively and share each other’s expertise, thereby ensuring that they are also able to offer excellent international services.
