Firm Moves to New Premises in Brussels

28 Nov 2016

International law firm Simmons & Simmons has moved its premises in Brussels to Avenue Louise/Louizalaan 143, 1050 Brussels as of Monday 28 November 2016.

Commenting on the move, partner and country head, Koen Platteau said, "We first opened our office in Brussels in 1962, at which time we were the first City law firm to open an office here and the opening demonstrated our commitment to growing our business internationally. Some 54 years later and we are more committed than ever to continue growing our presence in Brussels and remain excited about what the next chapter may bring.’’

The firm demonstrated its commitment to the region further in September with the expansion of the team and appointment of a new partner and of counsel. Joining at the beginning of December, Carl Meyntjens will join the firm from Ashurst as a partner* in the corporate and commercial group. He will be joined by Kelly Cherretté as of counsel*.

Koen Platteau, continued, “This is a stellar team with a widely renowned reputation and expertise in local and cross-border transactions, both in Belgium and abroad. Their combined expertise complements that of our existing team and enhances our Benelux and European offering in corporate and finance for our clients.”

To mark the office move and arrival of a new team, the firm will host an official opening in March 2017 with clients, contacts and media contacts in attendance.
