Our Brussels office is honoured to have won four awards at the annual Benchmark Litigation Europe Awards ceremony last night. These awards celebrate the leading litigators and most impactful disputes across Europe.

Our firm was named ‘Belgium Firm of the Year’ for the third consecutive year in a row and ‘Competition Firm of the Year’. In addition, we received an ‘Impact Case Award’ for our team’s work on the Perrigo Omega Pharma case lead by litigation partner Nicolas Résimont. Last but not least, Oliver Stevens was presented with the ‘Belgium Litigator of the Year’ award for the second time. Oliver has been with the Brussels office of Stibbe since 1999 and has been a partner since 2016. He specialises in collective liability proceedings and banking and insurance disputes. 

Wouter Ghijsels, Managing Partner of Stibbe Brussels, commented: “Congratulations to our litigation and competition teams. Taking home four awards at the Benchmark Litigation Europe Awards is a fantastic achievement for the firm. These awards not only showcase the talent of our people, but are also evidence of our remained focus on delivering the highest quality service to our clients to meet their ever-increasing needs and requirements.”

We wish to thank our clients sincerely for their continued trust in our firm.
