Stibbe is a leading internationally-oriented Benelux law firm with main offices in Amsterdam, Brussels, and Luxembourg; and branch offices in Dubai, London, and New York.
Stibbe provides companies and public institutions with full legal service covering all areas of law, such as constitutional and administrative law, real estate law, corporate law, tax law, employment law, social security law, criminal law, ICT law, EU law, competition law, pensions law, energy law, IP law, environmental law, etc.
Located next to the iconic Grand Place in Brussels city centre, our award-winning Brussels office advises clients on their legal issues in Belgium, across the Benelux, and around the world, and represents them in litigations. Since its inception over 100 years ago, our Brussels office has grown into the largest firm in the Belgian legal landscape with around 150 lawyers, including 30 partners.
Our dedicated, multidisciplinary teams have become a longstanding and trusted business advisor to our clients. Additionally, many of our lawyers are academics who are involved in ground-breaking legislative work.
Our clients range from multinational and national corporations and financial institutions to government organizations and other public authorities. We handle their transactions, disputes, and projects across a broad spectrum of sectors including finance, energy, real estate and construction, industrials and chemicals, retail and consumer goods, life sciences, transport, and telecommunications, media and technology. Our thorough understanding of their commercial objectives, their market position, and their sector or industry allows us to provide them with the most appropriate and effective advice.
In addition to our own international presence, we collaborate closely with other top-tier firms on cross-border matters outside our home jurisdictions (the Benelux). These relations are non-exclusive and enable us to assemble a tailor-made, integrated team of lawyers with the best expertise and contacts for each specific matter and client. This guarantees efficient coordination on cross-border transactions throughout a multitude of legal areas, whatever their complexity and nature.
We know that in order to be effective at solving problems, we must get to know our clients well and understand the bigger picture of the matter at hand. Seeing issues fully in context and having a practical approach enable us to provide insightful and appropriate advice and assistance to help our clients achieve the right results.
Recognized for handling our private and public clients’ most complex and business-critical cases, we invest in our lawyers’ hard and soft skills heavily through our market-leading education programme – Stibbe Academy – and advanced, efficient ICT tools. This approach helps us maintain our market position as a leading firm while differentiating ourselves from the competition through a high degree of partner involvement in everything we do.
Teamwork in complex cross-border matters
Many of our major clients choose us so they can benefit from the many synergies that are created by the constant day-to-day collaboration between our experts throughout the world in many legal areas, especially regarding complex and often cross-border transactions.
As a reputable, international law firm, we feel a strong sense of responsibility for the development of a more sustainable society. That is why we ensure that CSR remains an integral part of our firm and culture.
First and foremost, our CSR contribution to society is rooted in effective legal advice and relevant pro bono work. Further to these areas, we are investing in a diverse and inclusive culture in which talented people can thrive regardless of gender and ethnicity. We also provide financial and in-kind sponsorship of organizations dedicated to academia, the arts and the wellbeing of children.
We are minimizing our environmental impact by embracing new technologies and inspiring people to continuously make conscious decisions on whether their behavior would best fit an environmentally friendly approach.
These are important steps and we aim to do even more in the years ahead involving our people, our clients and our peers. Together, we want to ensure the legal profession in general, and our firm in particular, continues to contribute to a sustainable society.
