Book 3 inducted - The Belgian Property Law landscape after the reform

Tuesday 12 October 2021

Speakers:
Astrid Laga, Donald Krols, Laura Vervier

Sponsor:
Benedicte Deboeck, Laurent Pyls

The Law of 4 February 2020 thoroughly refreshed Belgian Property Law, which had been until then an amalgam of rules dating from the Dutch era (i.e. the 1824 long term lease and right to build laws), the 1804 “Code Napoléon” and over 200 years of case law.  The reformed Property Law (Book 3) came into force on 1 September 2021. 

Let us guide you through the novelties of Book 3, focusing on practical considerations for real estate professionals.

Jennifer Granado Aranzana, Laurie Kleijnen

Sponsor:
Caroline Borgers 

During Covid-19, some employees have developed habits of teleworking abroad. It is likely that some employees hope to continue working that way after the pandemic. Some corporations have even announced policies whereby employees would be allowed to work “from wherever they do their most creative thinking”. However, the place from where the work is carried out has important consequences from an employment, social security and tax point of view.

Tuesday 7 December 2021

Speakers:
Jennifer Granado Aranzana, Guillaume Croisant, Jérémy Filbiche

Sponsor:
Nele Van Kerrebroeck, David Ballegeer 

The Covid-19 crisis has paved the way towards increased attention to the “S” of ESG. The scrutiny to social commitment as part of a holistic sustainable business strategy can no longer be neglected in view of both the regulatory push and evolving consumers and investors’ expectations in this respect. This session will discuss recent trends on the “S” items companies could and/or should disclose or otherwise commit to, taking into account the forthcoming regulatory framework (including the draft social taxonomy regulation, the forthcoming Pay Transparency Directive, mandatory supply chain due diligences (business and human rights) and the interplay with the “G” of governance (ESG links to executive pay).
