Stibbe appoints three new partners

04.12.2019 NL law

Muriël Rosing, Jan van Oosten and IJsbrand van Straten have been appointed as partners at Stibbe in Amsterdam with effect from 1 January 2020. Muriël is a criminal law specialist, Jan is a recognised expert in environment and planning law, and IJsbrand is a specialist in (notarial) corporate law.

Muriël Rosing leads a multidisciplinary research team with which she advises and litigates in the field of compliance and criminal law. Regulators and investigative bodies are currently putting a great deal of effort into tackling fraud, bribery, money laundering and other economic crimes, and Muriël assists companies and directors who are involved in large-scale criminal investigations.

Jan van Oosten advises national and international companies and governments on complex and large-scale intra- and extra-urban area developments. Environment and planning law is constantly evolving, both at Dutch and European levels. Climate change, the energy transition and housing challenges call for high-quality legal and strategic advice. The appointment of Jan is therefore an important strengthening of Stibbe's environment and planning practice.

IJsbrand van Straten advises on international transactions (including cross-border deals), private equity and restructurings. After working for Stibbe both in New York and in London, IJsbrand now returns as a partner with Stibbe in Amsterdam. His experience and expertise fit seamlessly with the complex issues increasingly arising in Stibbe’s transaction practice.

Derk Lemstra, Managing Partner of Stibbe Amsterdam: "Muriël, Jan and IJsbrand have proven their talent in recent years and all three have developed into top specialists in their field. As far as I am concerned, their appointment is an important contribution to our ambition to advise clients on complex, high-end legal issues."

Belanghebbende in het omgevingsrecht: een steeds hogere drempel?

Short Reads - De Afdeling hanteert sinds enige jaren een vaste jurisprudentielijn ten aanzien van het belanghebbende-begrip in het omgevingsrecht. Het uitgangspunt daarbij is dat iemand die rechtstreeks feitelijke gevolgen ondervindt van een activiteit belanghebbende is, tenzij ‘gevolgen van enige betekenis’ ontbreken. De lat om aan dit criterium te voldoen lijkt steeds hoger te liggen. Wordt de toegang tot de bestuursrechter daardoor bemoeilijkt, en zo ja: is die beperking te rechtvaardigen?
