Brussels

McGuireWoods LLP has more than 1,000 lawyers in 21 strategically located offices, including Brussels, Belgium and London, United Kingdom. Our lawyers speak 35 languages and provide seamless global advice through our network firms in 128 countries.

Brussels is the capital of the European Union and home to the European Commission and other EU institutions. McGuireWoods Brussels has been serving clients in Belgium and internationally for 25 years. We have more than 10 lawyers in our Brussels office who are fluent in two or more languages, including English, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.

We have specific depth of experience in a range of practice areas for corporate clients in Belgium and beyond, including mergers and acquisitions, general corporate services, commercial contracts, data privacy, dispute resolution, corporate finance, private equity and venture capital, intellectual property, real estate and real estate finance. We have a significant reputation in mining, in particular from our work with metal mining companies in francophone Central and Western Africa. We represent both US and non-US companies that come from a range of sectors, in particular, high-tech, real estate, mining, various manufacturing industries, aviation, banking, distribution and franchise, financial and payment services, food and beverage, gaming and gambling, information and communications technology, life sciences, media and entertainment, information and communications technology, sports, and transportation.

Our lawyers also deal with all aspects of international trade law, including customs and customs compliance, trade defence, export control and sanctions, and WTO, free trade agreements and regional agreements. Our international trade team is complemented by a competition/antitrust team who advises our clients on all aspects of competition law in the EU and compliance with state aid rules law. The office also boasts an EU Regulatory and Public Advocacy team who provide our clients with EU regulatory compliance guidance, public procurement, free movement of goods and services and lobbying and advocacy services in various industries including data protection.

The Brussels office is committed to McGuireWoods’ core value of service and our lawyers and staff provide pro bono services for many who would otherwise be unable to afford legal representation.
