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.

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.
