On Thursday 8 September, Eberhard van der Laan, the Mayor of Amsterdam, officially opened our new office building at the Beethovenplein. In his speech, Van der Laan praised Stibbe as a highly prominent Amsterdam firm and complimented our new building.

The office space, designed by architect Jo Coenen, is intended to facilitate working in teams. The building is in the shape of an elongated triangle with a central atrium, which stretches up to the top floor. As a result of the shape and glass facade, there are three wide corners on each floor offering panoramic city views. These corners contain open work spaces for flexible cooperation. The library and auditorium provide room to learn and share knowledge and experience, both with clients and colleagues. The building accommodates around 400 employees.

In 1991, Stibbe was the first law firm to move to the Zuidas, into the 'Stibbe Tower' next to the WTC. The new location at the Beethovenplein connects the Zuidas business centre with the city of Amsterdam. Stibbe has a particularly strong connection with Amsterdam because we have been based in the city for more than 100 years

Derk Lemstra, managing partner of Stibbe in Amsterdam, said during the opening: "We are proud of our beautiful office building in Amsterdam. It marks a new milestone in the development of Stibbe as a renowned firm. This building offers us the possibility to work together even better than before. We recognize that most of our cases are no longer handled by one man or woman who can do everything, but that we are working in multidisciplinary teams. Working together in teams has become the norm. This needed a new building with more room for meetings and multidisciplinary teams, with larger floors and more space to welcome our clients."

During the opening, Stibbe also launched a new portal for clients and other interested parties: MyStibbe. Users of this portal will be able to find and share knowledge directly and easily and will be able to work together with their Stibbe contacts. Lemstra: "Sharing knowledge is of the utmost importance, for both clients and employees. The quality of the services we provide is determined by the expertise of our people. They are the backbone of our firm. Ultimately, in complex cases it is crucial that we have people who truly have in-depth knowledge of the issue at hand and actually understand the business of our clients. People who really are experts in their fields."
