With 118 lawyers and offices in Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Hasselt, Luxembourg and Zurich, Tiberghien is the biggest independent tax practice at the Belgian Bar.

The main asset of Tiberghien consists of a multidisciplinary, 360° approach to tax and all related aspects (such as family and corporate governance for family businesses). The size and the level of expertise of the team allows the firm to closely monitor new developments and to tailor its service to the exact needs of each client. In addition, the firm can draw on an extensive international network of specialists.

Tiberghien offers expertise in all domains of taxation and family (property) law. The HNW department focusses on structuring investments, family businesses and wealth (prenuptial agreements, donations, wills, inheritances…).

International Work:
Tiberghien acts for HNW individuals resident in Belgium or abroad and for national and multinational companies and institutions. As a top tier Belgian tax firm, the company has established succesful operational relationships with a number of (tax) law firms across Europe and beyond.
