David Orobio de Castro: "It is with great pleasure that I take over this role from Derk. Stibbe has done well in recent years and is on course for the coming years. I look forward to working with Michael and Job, as well as our other top specialists, to provide clients with the right combination of legal disciplines in the face of the growing demand for high-quality legal advice."

Michael Molenaars and Job van Hooff will both join as new board members. Michael is a tax lawyer and head of the tax team in Amsterdam.

Derk Lemstra: "It has been a great pleasure for me to lead the firm over the past six years. In addition, I found it a great privilege to work with so many talented and passionate people. I wish the new board the best of luck with this wonderful task and entrust it to them."
