Stibbe appoints five new counsel; growth continues

25.02.2016

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.

Newly appointed counsel in the Amsterdam office are Sjoerd Buijn (35) and Reinout de Boer (39). Sjoerd Buijn is a candidate civil-law notary in the Amsterdam Corporate law practice, working with partners Paul Quist and Manòn Cremers. He has been with Stibbe since 2006. As a specialist in general corporate law and notarial corporate law, he handles complex matters for both private and listed companies.

Reinout de Boer is part of the Tax practice group. He specialises in domestic and international taxation with particular emphasis on mergers and acquisitions, private equity transactions and corporate reorganisations. Reinout joined Stibbe Amsterdam in 2006 and works with partners Michael Molenaars, Maarten de Bruin and Jeroen Smits.

Our Brussels office has appointed Dieter Demuynck (34), Irène Mathy (33) and Olivier Di Giacomo (35) as counsel. Dieter Demuynck is a member of our employment and pensions practice; he concentrates on individual and collective employment law as well as social security law aspects. He has been at Stibbe since he graduated from law school in 2007 and works closely with partner Elisabeth Matthys.

Irène Mathy is active in our public law practice. Irène specialises in public procurement, semi-governmental entities, restructuring of public entities, public office, public real estate and the regulation of the electronic communications sector. She has been at Stibbe since 2007 and works with partners Bruno Lombaert and France Maussion.

Olivier Di Giacomo is active in the fields of environmental law, urban zoning and planning. He also advises on a wide range of issues regarding real estate law. He has been at Stibbe since 2007 and works with partners France Maussion and Jan Bouckaert.

The Dutch legislator did not meet the implementation deadline. We expect that the law will not enter into force prior to 1 March 2020.
