This interdisciplinary team has all the necessary knowledge to advise and assist you in all aspects of estate planning.

You can always count on a customized solution.

 

This field of law requires keeping close track of the latest developments. To this end, NG contributed in creating a discussion platform, called the “Estate Planning Skill Group (EPSG) Flemish Brabant”, founded in 2011. This platform offers professionals the chance to share their experiences, know-how and ideas about estate planning.

 

Estate planning is also closely related to inheritance law, (avoiding) inheritance taxes and disputes that arise from an inheritance. Our lawyers expertly handle all questions and issues arising both before and after death, ranging from an inheritance statement to court proceedings regarding estate settlement and division.
