NautaDutilh strengthens Financal Law practice with arrival of Roel Theissen as counsel
Roel Theissen has joined NautaDutilh's Financial Law practice as counsel as of 1 April 2023.
Roel has almost 30 years of experience in financial supervision of banks and insurers, with a specialisation in prudential supervision. The implications of financial supervision for these institutions, their directors and other stakeholders in their relationships with regulators, together with the repercussions of that supervision in acquisitions, transactions and financial and governance problems, are at the heart of his practice. He holds a PhD in European banking supervision, and has advised and lectured on the solidity (capital, governance, integrity) of all categories of supervised financial companies.
"We are very glad that Roel joined our firm," says managing partner Sjoerd Meijer. "Roel's in-depth knowledge of prudential supervision further strengthens our Financial Law team's market-leading position. His arrival underlines the undiminished ambitions we have in offering our clients state-of-the-art advice."
Roel Theissen: "NautaDutilh has a truly outstanding and leading Financial Law practice and it is a privilege to become a part of the team. I look forward to work together with the team and other colleagues across the firm to provide our clients with the best legal advice in this fast growing and changing area of law."
Larissa Silverentand, partner in our Financial Law team: "Roel's expertise in the field of banking and insurance regulation has great added value to the Financial Law team. With Roel's arrival we will further extend our position in the market. We are happy that Roel is part of the team!"
