Kelley Drye attorneys represent multinational clients in commercial, finance and corporate matters in Belgium and elsewhere in the EU. We also assist clients in transactions that require expertise in both U.S. and EU law, such as when European clients look to expand in the United States or when U.S. clients seek to develop markets in Europe.
Our purpose is to help clients structure, document and implement their business transactions to align with their business objectives. Kelley Drye services include guidance on mergers and acquisitions, counsel on cross-border strategic alliances, assistance with the incorporation process, advice on the conditions for conducting business, advice on directors’ liabilities and responsibilities and shareholders’ rights, and assistance with corporate governance issues and agreements.
We also advise clients on Belgian law and coordinate between different EU member states with respect to the restructuring or reorganization of companies. We counsel on insolvency issues and the dissolution and liquidation of companies, as well as on transnational aspects of bankruptcy, such as the impact of a supplier’s bankruptcy on a client’s business operations.
