Stibbe’s Brussels office has appointed Pieter Vandenheede (33, Environment & Planning), Sofie Heremans (32, Banking & Finance), and Pieter Bogaert (41, Real Estate & Construction) as counsel. The new appointments are effective from 1 July 2017. The appointments demonstrate Stibbe’s commitment to foster the further development of talent within the firm.

Pieter Vandenheede is part of the Environment and Planning practice group. Pieter focuses on town and country planning, permits, and environmental law. He undertakes advisory and litigation work relating to complex, large-scale projects. Pieter has been with the Brussels office of Stibbe since 2008 and works closely with partner Jan Bouckaert.

Sofie Heremans is active in the Banking and Finance practice group. Sofie concentrates primarily on banking and financial law (including acquisitions, real estate, and corporate finance), but focuses particularly on project finance (inside and outside the PPP market). Sofie joined the Brussels office of Stibbe in 2011 and works closely with partner Wouter Ghijsels.

Pieter Bogaert is a member of the Real Estate and Construction practice group. His expertise covers all legal aspects of real estate. Pieter is particularly active in real estate portfolio management, project development, and real estate transactions in general. Before joining the Brussels office of Stibbe in 2013, Pieter was legal counsel for over 11 years, focused on professional real estate, at one of the largest notary offices in Belgium. Pieter works closely with partner Rudy Nauwelaerts.
