Financial Markets


WATT legal is specialized in advice and litigation regarding the primary and secondary financial markets:


  • initial public offerings (IPO)
  • public takeover offers (PTO)
  • public offering and private placement of bonds
  • market abuse (false information, quotation manipulation, dominance abuse…)







The WATT legal partners intervened in the biggest financial cases of the 30 last years in Belgium (Wagon-Lits, Générale de Banque, Ubizen-Verizon, National Bank of Belgium, Fortis, EU-EMTS, EURIBOR…), in strong defense of the investor.


Due to its specific expertise, WATT legal is regularly consulted in multinational litigation, in close collaboration with top local players.
