"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.
  • Trustworthy
    • 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.

League of Optimists

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.”
