"As a U.S. based company with operations overseas we require representation from expert local counsel. Carl assisted our U. S. based team in framing, launching, and completing a restructuring transaction. Carl was knowledgeable, communicative, and efficient throughout. I recommend Carl without reservation and look forward to the next opportunity to work with Carl in the future."
Rodney Philippe, SVP, Deputy General Counsel at Everi Holdings

"I have worked with Carl on a number of high-profile international and Belgian corporate and financial matters and have always been impressed by his level of professionalism, his responsiveness and commercial approach. Carl is always focused on getting the best deal possible for his client - but also strives to make everybody understand that the ultimate deal should be a win-win for all parties involved."
Johan Ysewyn, Managing Partner Covington Brussels

"We’ve met Carl during the M&A process that we were involved in. He provided an excellent balance between legal expertise and commercial reality. Since that experience, we use his services on a regular basis, not only for specific challenges, but also as a sounding board."
Peter De Buck – Partner at Connecting-Expertise

"With Dibbs we offer students an app where they can find all information regarding jobs, events and deals in one central place. Given the sensitive data that we handle, data privacy was a major topic from the concept phase on. Throughout the entire process, we called on Carl's expertise, both with regard to his GDPR knowledge and more generally to guarantee a correct legal framework for all our collaborations and contracts."
