Benelux firm Stibbe has appointed Job van Hooff as partner from 1 January 2015.
Joannes de Bont,  Nicolas Roland, Maarten Van Staeyen, Anne-Marie Nicolas and Jean-Marc Delcour, have been appointed as counsel.

The Amsterdam office of Stibbe has further strengthened its Commercial Litigation Group with the appointment of Job van Hooff as partner in the Restructuring & Insolvency group. Job started his career at Stibbe more than a decade ago. He focuses on complex insolvency matters, often relating to situations in an international context.

The Amsterdam Banking & Finance practice is boosted by the promotion of Joannes de Bont to counsel from 1 January 2015.

Derk Lemstra, Managing Partner of Stibbe Amsterdam, says "The appointment of Job to partner and the promotion of Joannes to counsel confirms our ambition to retain our strong position in Restructuring & Insolvency and Banking & Finance. Their broad experience and capabilities will help us to give our clients the best possible solutions in their area of expertise."

In our other Benelux offices, we continue to expand our practices as well. Our Luxembourg office saw the promotion of Jean-Marc Delcour (Finance) to counsel as well as the arrival of finance lawyer Anne-Marie Nicolas as counsel. They contribute to the further development of our Finance practice in Luxembourg. In Brussels, two lawyers have been promoted to counsel as of 1 January 2015: Nicolas Roland (TMT) and Maarten van Staeyen (Corporate and M&A). Nicolas will divide his time between the Brussels and Luxembourg offices, given the increased demand of our Luxembourg clients for TMT related legal assistance. He will also focus on coaching and training junior lawyers of the TMT group in both offices. Maarten will further enrich our Brussels Corporate practice group with his broad knowledge and expertise in M&A, private equity, and other corporate matters in a wide range of sectors.

Duurzaamheidsverslaggeving: van lappendeken naar een geüniformeerd stelsel

Articles - Decennialang zijn verslaggevingsvoorschriften voornamelijk gericht geweest op het verstrekken van informatie over – met name – de financiële prestaties van de verslaggevende entiteit. De afgelopen jaren is echter de aandacht voor en het belang van verslaggeving over – ook – de niet-financiële aspecten van ondernemen fors toegenomen. Tegelijkertijd ontbreekt het tot op heden aan een geüniformeerd stelsel van voorschriften met betrekking tot duurzaamheidsverslaggeving.
