Stibbe law firm opens office in Luxembourg
Benelux law firm Stibbe has announced the opening of a new office in Luxembourg as of 1 September 2010. The Luxembourg office will provide services in corporate law, tax, real estate and banking and finance law. Senior corporate partner Dirk Leermakers, who is in charge of developing the new office, said the growing reputation of Luxembourg as home base for companies and investment funds turns it into a ‘must consider’ jurisdiction for many M&A and venture capital transactions. The firm sees its Luxembourg office as a natural extension of its presence in the other two Benelux countries. Beside Brussels and Amsterdam, Stibbe has offices in London, New York and Dubai.
