Gaëtan Zeyen has been a lawyer at the Brussels bar for twenty years. He is moreover an arbitrator and, as such, member of various Belgian and foreign arbitration institutions (Cepani; Association française d’Arbitrage; Chambre arbitrale de Vienne).
His professional practice tends toward economic law, and more particularly towards the various aspects of tax law, both Belgian and international (European and OECD) – as well as that of the law of companies in difficulty and arbitration law (Belgian or international).
His interventions cover not only the contentious, but also the non-contentious aspects of a tax case. He furthermore advises his clients in the context of non-aggressive tax planning, both at corporate, and at individual level.
In addition to his involvement with the Brussels Bar (he is a member of the Bar’s tax law committee), Gaëtan is also pursuing an academic career, and more particularly a doctoral degree. In this respect, his favorite field of research is that of double taxation conventions.
He is a member of the tax law research group of the Centre de Recherche Interdisciplinaire Droit, Entreprise et Société (CRIDES) of the UCLouvain and the Tax Institute of Liège.
He has published numerous articles in the field of taxation (mainly international) and arbitration. He regularly delivers training courses or seminars in tax law.
Pierre Bruwier practiced law from 2003 to 2010 in major Belgian law firms, mainly in the field of intellectual property law. He is the author of several publications on the subject and has been invited to speak at various seminars. As a result of his litigation skills, he was nominated for the Georges Boels Prize in 2005.
From 2011 to 2021 he headed the legal department of an engineering company with offices in more than ten countries in Europe, the Americas, and Asia. This position led him to oversee the various legal aspects of an international group. He has acquired a particular expertise in negotiating construction contracts (EP and EPC) for industrial complexes built on the five continents. He has furthermore assisted various clients in obtaining project financing with coverage by a credit insurer.
As a certified mediator since 2020, he puts his sense of compromise, his knowledge of the internal workings of a company, and his extensive experience as a negotiator at the service of companies wishing to settle their disputes without resorting to the courts. Since 2011, he is regularly appointed as a judicial expert in the context of descriptive seizure proceedings, a procedure specific to intellectual property rights.
After a decade of leading a legal department in the corporate world, Pierre is returning to the practice of law, and is in the process of re-registering at the Brussels bar.
Pierre works in French, English, Dutch and he understands Spanish.
