"Anew way of providing notary services"
An authentic working philosophy
Remaining faithful to our family legacy and bolstered by our long experience as founding members of a major association in Brussels, we (Olivier and Jérôme) decided to create a new notary partnership that combines tradition and modernity.
Along with our 20-person team who have the training, knowledge and experience needed to deal with your matters efficiently, we have based our vision on strong, shared values.
- Committed & Meticulous
- Being notaries is more than a profession for us – it’s a passion. We strive at all times to understand and meet our clients’ expectations. We ensure that our employees receive ongoing training so that they can provide a high-quality service, both now and in the future. As a team, we are always trying to improve, to pay attention to the smallest details and to hold ourselves to a high standard.
- We firmly believe that trust is the only way to build sustainable relationships. That's why we have made it the central pillar of all our relationships, both within our team and with our clients. We believe in our ability to create a real vision for our firm and to meet all of our client’s needs, while balancing our work with current societal and environmental concerns. The confidentiality required in the notarial profession is also a central aspect of this trust-based relationship.
- Person-Focused & Responsive
- The first and founding value of Alter Ego: people are at the centre of our culture. This guides our client-focused approach, as well as the relationships our staff form within our company. Guided by tolerance and a respect for diversity, we build strong relationships with each of our clients, working closely with them at each important stage of their personal journey. We also strive to be flexible in our organisation, not only in terms of preparing documents and following up on our clients’ cases, but also in the development of our internal structure. Our desire to be agile means knowing how to anticipate needs, how to thoroughly contemplate all aspects of an issue and how to be proactive. Recognising each of our employees as a unique individual helps them become active participants in our collective success.

A SMILE a day keeps the doctor away
What if we looked on the bright side of life by staying positive? This is what Olivier and Jérôme had in mind when they helped create the international association “Optimists Without Borders.” Its aim is “to work across borders to help raise awareness and promote changes in mindsets towards greater optimism and increased enthusiasm, happiness and positive thinking, boldness and an enterprising spirit, respect for others as well as harmony between citizens and communities.”Learn more
