"Dans l’ensemble, nous avons été impressionnés par l’excellente prestation de Liedekerke, sa qualité, sa fiabilité et sa disponibilité. Nous voudrions souligner le niveau exceptionnel du service, du soutien et des conseils que nous avons reçus de la part de l’équipe Corporate et M&A. Leurs connaissances, la justesse de leurs avis, leur sens des affaires et leur sérieux nous ont été d’une aide inestimable pour la progression de la transaction. En dépit des défis qu’elle posait (transaction transfrontalière impliquant un acheteur étranger, un vendeur belge et sa société mère étrangère, à conclure dans un délai très court avec des équipes travaillant sous différents fuseaux horaires), elle a été conclue comme prévu grâce aux conseils efficaces et judicieux prodigués par Liedekerke."
