Jacques Meunier, Partner, Corporate

Jacques Meunier, Partner, Corporate, Fieldfisher

I am an expert in corporate matters, with 20 years' experience in advising international and domestic companies in their growth, public and private M&A, their internal restructuring projects as well as on their general corporate questions (directors' liabilities, capital markets issues, securities, etc.).

I have particular expertise in M&A, private equity and venture capital transactions. The sectors in which I am most active are retail, life sciences, healthcare and construction.

Examples of my work over the last couple of years include advising a world leading clinical pathology lab in various acquisitions, advising one of the top worldwide luxury groups in all their corporate and commercial work (including setting-up a complex joint venture) and advising a French listed construction group in its M&A projects. I also advised private equity firms in leveraged management buyouts and start-ups or growing companies in their venture capital transactions.

I am an active member of the Belgian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (member of the Tax & Legal Committee and the Education Committee).

The latest editions of legal directories (Chambers Europe and Legal 500) describe me as follows: "He is quick, smart, proactive and creative; a business-oriented lawyer (…). He doesn't complicate matters and is very efficient". "He is valued for his ‘quick-wittedness’".

I enjoy coaching my children's hockey teams, tennis, travelling and, most of all, I love spending time and laughing with my family and friends. Photography is a passion as well.
