We are pleased to announce that Erwin De Deyn joined Ariga as of 1 February 2022.
Erwin will focus on contract, commercial and corporate matters, restructurings, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, regulatory (ESG), real estate, litigation, white-collar crime and data protection. Besides supporting Ariga's classical legal services provision, he will reinforce Ariga's specific services dedicated to policy development and business strategy & consulting.
Erwin brings more then 20 years of experience in company law, M&A transactions and commercial law to Ariga.
“We very much look forward to this extension. With Erwin’s experience as lawyer and as former Chief Legal Officer and member of the Executive Committee within respected Belgian and international companies he will bring precious practical business insights on top of his legal and strategic knowledge, which will allow us to further enrich Ariga’s service provision. With Erwin we further strengthen our commercial, corporate and M&A practice.” says Régine Feltkamp.
Erwin added: "What matters to us is sense of ownership and go the extra mile in order to bring value to our clients by understanding their business and offering pragmatic and effective solutions. Regardless of the size of the law firm, one of the most important considerations in selecting a lawyer is the level of confidence and trust that said lawyer will represent your company well. In that respect small and midsize firms are more efficient and more client-centric while offering similar levels of legal acuity. Ariga specifically caught my attention because it combines the client focused hands-on approach with a flexible, collaborative and transparent working environment".
