Brussels, 17 April 2015 – International Financial Law Review’s IFLR1000, the guide to the world's leading financial law firms has named Benelux firm Stibbe "Law Firm of the Year 2015" in Belgium. At a ceremony held at London's Grosvenor House, Wouter Ghijsels, partner in the Brussels office, accepted the award on behalf of the firm.

Based on interviews with finance lawyers in private practice and in-house counsel at a variety of financial institutions, IFLR1000 ranks Belgian law firms in the following areas: Banking and Finance, Capital Markets, and Mergers and Acquisitions. During yesterday’s ceremony our Amsterdam office also received the Equity Deal of the Year award for their involvement in the Euronext IPO.

After the Chambers Europe Award for Excellence for Belgium that Stibbe received in 2014 and the Chambers Europe Award for Excellence for the Netherlands that Stibbe received in 2013, this year’s IFLR award is yet another acknowledgement of the unique market position of our Brussels office. It also confirms the relevance of Stibbe’s strategy to focus on high-quality pragmatic advice with an integrated multidisciplinary approach.

Managing Partner Jan Peeters says: “We are delighted that the quality of our corporate and finance team has been recognised by IFLR1000.  The award really demonstrates Stibbe's breadth and depth in these increasingly important areas of law.”
