International, Benelux-based firm Stibbe has appointed Bart Volders (33), Jan Bogaert (34), and Pieter Schütte (35) as partners.

In Brussels, the Dispute Resolution practice is boosted by the promotion of Bart Volders to partner. Bart Volders, who joined Stibbe in 2009, significantly enhances Stibbe’s cross-border dispute resolution capacities. He focuses on international commercial arbitration, private and public international law, and cross-border dispute resolution. Bart has lectured in these areas at several universities, including those in Antwerp, Bujumbura, and Toulouse.

Hans Van Bavel, head of Stibbe Brussels’s Dispute Resolution practice, comments: “As a partner, Bart will significantly strengthen Stibbe's capabilities in complex cross-border dispute resolution, including international commercial arbitration. Bart will also contribute towards the visibility of our practice group in public international law matters, including those that concern state immunity.”

Jan Bogaert has also been appointed partner. Jan currently heads Stibbe’s Hong Kong office (since its inception in 2012), further expanding the international footprint of Stibbe outside the Benelux. Jan is a founding member of our China Practice. In his current role, he advises Chinese clients on their outbound investments into or via Europe, as well as on all legal aspects of doing business in the Benelux. Jan has a particular focus on foreign direct investment, M&A, private equity, corporate finance, international transaction structuring, and financial services regulation.

Jan Peeters, Managing Partner of Stibbe Brussels, says “Jan is a home-grown Stibbe lawyer, and it is a pleasure to be able to give such opportunities to our young talents for their further development. China is becoming an ever more important market, and Jan has proven to be an excellent ambassador for Stibbe.”

The Amsterdam office of Stibbe has further strengthened its Financial Markets Group with the appointment of Pieter Schütte as partner Capital Markets. Pieter started his career at Stibbe a decade ago and spent over two years in Stibbe’s London office. He focuses on complex equity and debt capital markets transactions. His capital markets experience includes initial public offerings, rights issues, and secondary offerings.

Heleen Kersten, Managing Partner of Stibbe Amsterdam, says "The partner appointment of Pieter states our ambition to retain our strong position in Capital Markets. Pieter's broad experience in both the debt and equity sides of capital markets will help us to give our clients the best possible solutions when tapping the capital markets."

The new partner promotions will take effect from 1 January 2014.
