We are pleased to announce the appointment of Bastiaan Assink, Ezechiel Havrenne and Frans Overkleeft as equity partner of our firm.
Bastiaan Assink specialises in arbitration and (arbitration related court) litigation. He primarily acts as counsel to national, foreign and multi-national parties in high value matters that typically involve complex questions of company law and private law, including claims under commercial contracts, shareholders' disputes, failed joint-ventures, and directors' and shareholders' liability, in particular in international corporate arbitrations. Bastiaan will continue his part-time position as professor of company law.
Ezechiel Havrenne leads our Luxembourg investment management practice. His clients include international private equity fund managers, global real estate fund managers, credit institutions, financial groups, institutional investors, mutual fund promoters and ultra-high net worth individuals.
Frans Overkleeft specialises in corporate litigation. He primarily focuses on transaction-related disputes, including cases on contested public takeover bids and shareholder activism. Frans recently received his PhD-degree for a doctoral thesis on the position of shareholders in Dutch listed companies. With his background in M&A, he is perfectly placed to strengthen NautaDutilh's transaction related litigation practice.
'With these new appointments, we strengthen the core competences of our firm', managing partner Petra Zijp says. 'We would like to congratulate Bastiaan, Ezechiel and Frans and wish them success in their new role.'
