On top of the appointment of 2 new partners in Amsterdam and 3 new partners in Brussels last year, international law firm Stibbe has appointed five new counsel in the first month of 2016. To complement the expansion at a senior level, Stibbe has also managed to recruit top talent from Belgian and Dutch universities, which ensures a balanced approach. As Stibbe grows it continues to attract high profile matters, including the IPO of ABN AMRO in 2015.
