bureau Brandeis expands as a broad litigation firm

bureau Brandeis
20 Aug 2014

Three partners and their staff will join bureau Brandeis as of 1 September 2014, thus bringing new practice areas to the firm: corporate litigation, commercial litigation and cassation appeals.

This expansion gives bureau Brandeis a position unrivalled in the Netherlands. No other firm with a focus on litigation offers such a wide range of services.

This expansion, part of bureau Brandeis’s aim announced earlier of offering first-class litigation in a wider field, was preceded by another addition to the firm: Hans Bousie and his team.

The teams
The three new partners, Jozua van der Beek, Louis Berger and Frank Peters, are undisputed authorities in their fields of expertise. Until now, they were all partners at Spigt Litigators. Before that

Van der Beek was affiliated with De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek. Together, the new partners have unique knowledge and experience in the field of litigation.

The teams of Van der Beek, Berger and Peters are completed by their staff members Floor Eikelboom, Rieneke Reijnen, Michelle Krekels, Jonas Verheul and Marije Hazenberg and secretaries Diana Wildeboer and Desiree Versteeg.

Christiaan Alberdingk Thijm and Hans Bousie: “We’re really looking forward to working with our new partners Frank, Jozua and Louis. As we join forces with these partners and their practices, a process that we have been working on behind the scenes for quite some time nears completion. For us, this is the true start of bureau Brandeis. Further expansion in the near future is definitely not ruled out.”

Frank Peters and Louis Berger: “We choose litigation and the side of the challenger. Our position in proceedings against the government, regulators, big banks and accounting firms is completely unfettered. This gives bureau Brandeis a unique, independent position in the market.”

About the new partners
With twelve years of experience in civil cassation practice, Jozua van der Beek is a top-notch cassation lawyer.
Louis Berger specialises in corporate and commercial litigation, including inquiry proceedings before the Enterprise Chamber, directors’ and officers’ liability proceedings and insolvencies.
Frank Peters specialises in disputes between shareholders of both listed and unlisted companies, with a particular interest in hedge funds.
