House style : "normal". This is the title of an e-mail message sent to our future new webmaster of a brand-new webalive website. A new website is actually a dynamic template, in which the content is entered by a non-technical webmaster.

House style "subtitle". Training for a webalive CMS webmaster.

House style "bullet" or "bullet-single-line". In that same mail message, the future webmaster is invited to attend a 2,5 hours training on our webapplication webalive Content Management System Studio5. After this training, our webmaster can start introducing the menu's and content of the webpages of his website.

House style "highlight". A webalive website reflects the house style of the company or organisation. The webmaster cannot cheat angainst the house style: he can only apply the pre-programmed house style using these elements: characterset, font, colours, titles, subtitles, bullets, normal font, link colours and highlights (this ?).

About us


Passionate about law

Corbus is an acronym of core business and business law. Our passion is law, in particular business law, and our approach is pragmatic and based on achieving solutions.

Our objective is clear: find solutions which really do strengthen your company or organisation. It is a process where we always start out by looking at things from your perspective. We enjoy investing in long-term relationships so that we can be sure what your real priorities are.
Corbus aims at being the number one reference in its local market, as reliable legal partner for the entrepreneur and the enterprising institution.

It goes without saying that our various legal departments, including family law, property law, and labour law, can also handle the legal issues of those outside the business world in economic terms.

Our services range from legal advice to settling disputes, all in clear and comprehensive language. It is where Corbus can make a difference for you.

Open communication and clear agreements

We attach great importance to open communication and clear agreements. The services of a lawyer tend to be tailor-made to a client's needs, where mutual trust and a good cultural fit can be decisive. Please see our information document and our terms and conditions, which contain detailed information on our services and our standard agreements.

Tailored to our clients

We offer our clients alternative fee arrangements. Of course our clients can opt for hourly rates where we offer an optimal blend. Furthermore we give our clients the possibility to opt for a flat fee for handling their legal work. This flat fee could cover a specific project, or day to day legal support during a specific period of time. No extra costs, but a transparent and simple legal budget. The advantages of an in-house counsel, but more freely and more flexible, one on one with your specific legal needs.

SME portfolio

SMEs can use our SME portfolio, and receive a subsidy from the Flemish government for the advice we provide. For example, Corbus can offer you assistance in the start-up of a new activity, the development of a legal structure for your business activities, rolling out a national or international distribution network, property development, or any questions about intellectual property or IT.

areas of expertise

Business law

Business law

Focus on solutions
Corporate law is our CORe BUSiness. As enterprising lawyers, we enjoy offering you our thoughts, so that we can quickly find you a positive outcome. This allows you to focus on your business, with no extra concerns.

Property and administrative law

For businesses, government and private individuals
Companies, governments and private individuals are often confronted with property and administrative law, even if they would rather avoid it. Corbus, however, can rely on many years of experience in property and administrative law. For example, Corbus has been the trusted advisor to the largest estate agent franchise in Belgium for many years, as well as a number of well-known construction companies and property developers.

Property and administrative law
IT, Internet and data protection

IT, Internet and data protection

Just as many opportunities as challenges
IT developments, especially the Internet, raise new legal issues on a daily basis, hardly surprising since the legal framework has not yet taken it into account. Corbus can lead you through the minefields of the digital world, whether you are a start-up or an established business. We can offer you efficient support, so you can make the most of all the opportunities available.

Intellectual property and media law

Protection does not have to be expensive or complicated
The value of many companies lies in their intellectual property, in other words their intangible assets. Despite this, many Belgian businesspeople worry about applying for a patent or trademark protection because they think that the protection of intellectual property is complicated or expensive. Corbus will be more than happy to help you safeguard the economic value of your business name, logo, product, slogan etc.

Intellectual property and media law
Labour and social security

Labour and social security

For employers and employees
Individual labour law governs the employment relationship between employers and employees, while collective labour law governs the relationship between employee representative bodies and employers. Whether you are looking for advice or procedural information in either area, Corbus can help you.

Family and asset

Expert assistance during exceptional events
Exceptional life-changing events deserve special assistance. In addition, personal relationships and emotions are very important within families. Corbus can help steer you around points of conflict with thorough preparation and proper organisation, and even if disputes do arise, we can assist you expertly and discreetly.

Family and asset


Mediation: a proper alternative to resolving disputes
Litigation is not always the best option for you or your organisation. Mediation focuses on restoring communication and safeguarding the relationship, whether it be commercial or otherwise. It differs in that the decision rests with the parties themselves, because mediation is based on voluntary and confidential talks under the supervision of an impartial mediator. When mediating, Corbus always strives to achieve quick and lasting solutions.

Partners in this network collaborate actively and share each other's expertise, thereby ensuring that they are also able to offer excellent international services.

Een rechtzaak op de rol zetten is duurder geworden

Bij het inleiden van een nieuwe zaak voor de burgerlijke rechtbank betaal je sinds 1 juni 2015 meer rolrechten. Hoeveel de kostprijs van deze rolrechten juist bedraagt hangt enerzijds af van de soort rechtbank en anderzijds van de hoogte van de invordering die de eisende partij wil bekomen. Read more

Persoonlijke aansprakelijkheid bij faillissement vennootschap

Wanneer bij een faillissement de schulden de baten overtreffen kunnen bestuurders persoonlijk aansprakelijk worden gesteld voor dit tekort indien zij een kennelijke grove fout hebben begaan die bijdroeg tot het faillissement. Bij een bvba vindt deze regel geen toepassing wanneer de omzet de afgelopen drie jaar gemiddeld lager was dan EUR 620.000,- en het balanstotaal bij het einde van het laatste boekjaar niet hoger was dan EUR 370.000,-.

Bestuurders /zaakvoerders /vereffenaars- rechtspersonen BTW plichtig vanaf 1 januari 2016

Facebookís nieuwe gebruikersvoorwaarden: wat is er nu van aan?

Iedereen weet het ondertussen wel: FACEBOOK heeft op 30 januari 2015 nieuwe gebruiksvoorwaarden ingevoerd en sindsdien ligt FACEBOOK (meer dan ooit) onder vuur wegens schending van de Belgische en Europese Privacywetgeving. Zo is er zelfs een Europese Werkgroep in het leven geroepen (met o.a. de Belgische, Nederlandse en Duitse Privacycommissies) om zich te buigen over deze nieuwe gebruiksvoorwaarden van FACEBOOK. Maar wat houden deze nieuwe gebruiksvoorwaarden nu eigenlijk in en zijn ze effectief in overtreding met de Europese Privacywetgeving ? De vakgroep ICT & Law KULEUVEN ICRI zocht het uit en publiceerde haar bevindingen in een 60 paginaís-tellend rapport. Read more

De erfenissprong

Ruim twee jaar geleden verscheen in het Belgisch Staatsblad de wet die het mogelijk maakte om kleinkinderen rechtstreeks van de grootouders te laten erven zonder dat daarvoor een testament moet worden opgemaakt. Wij merken in de praktijk dat deze mogelijkheid nog steeds weinig bekendheid geniet; daarom brengen wij ze nogmaals onder de aandacht, aan de hand van een voorbeeld. Read more
