Petra Zijp, Jaap Jan Trommel, and Chris Warner have been appointed as board of NautaDutilh with effect from 1 June 2017.
Petra Zijp leads the Capital Markets team and advises issuing institutions, banks, and institutional investors on capital market transactions. In 1999 and 2000, she worked from NautaDutilh’s office in London. Petra, one of the driving forces behind our firm’s diversity and inclusiveness policy, was the 2016 Legal Woman of the Year. She joined NautaDutilh in 1995 and became a partner in banking and securities law in 2002.
Jaap Jan Trommel advises on mergers, acquisitions, and corporate law, primarily for clients in the energy sector. He has also gained a great deal of international experience, partly as a result of the years he worked in Spain, Singapore, and Indonesia. He is the co-head of NautaDutilh’s China and Japan desks and has been a partner at the firm since 1995.
Chris Warner advises Dutch and international clients about the tax aspects relating to issues such as listed M&A transactions, public-private partnerships, and corporate reorganisations. He joined NautaDutilh exactly 20 years ago, and has headed the firm’s tax practice since 2006. He worked in our New York office from 2002 until 2006.
Petra, Jaap Jan, and Chris will be taking the baton from Erik Geerling and Gaike Dalenoord, who are returning to their law practices after seven and three years, respectively. The board was expanded so that each of the three new board members can remain active in practicing law. The new board will not have a chairperson, but will instead operate based on togetherness.
