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.
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.

ICT 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Belgium introduced new legislation to tackle abuses of power between companies
On 21 March 2019, Belgian parliament adopted the "Law amending the Economic Law Code with regard to the abuse of a dominant position".
The new Belgian Companies and Associations Code (CAC) was approved on 28 February 2019.
The new CAC will affect every Belgian company and any foreign company with business in Belgium in various ways. The new rules are aimed to make rules governing companies simpler, more modern and more flexible. The most important changes of the CAC are listed below:
