Professional Career

Significant Accomplishments
Together with Ivo Vande Velde, Jerome is the editor of 'European Cross-Border Mergers and Reorganizations', a comprehensive (984 pages) Oxford University Press practical guide covering the corporate, tax and employment aspects of cross-border mergers and other reorganisations in Europe in a country-by-country format. It first discusses the EU and EEA legal framework and case law and thereafter examines the rules applicable at the level of 13 major EU countries (UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands, Poland, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Czech Republic and Hungary). It deals with cross-border mergers and other types of cross-border reorganisations within Europe such as demergers, transfers of branches of activities and transfers of the head office and/or the registered office of companies across borders.

Professional Associations
Jérôme is Vice-President of the Corporate M&A Commission at AIJA and a member of the Belgian-Indian Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Belgium-Japan Association & Chamber of Commerce.
