Houthoff Buruma to attend Annual IBA Conference in Sydney

    Sep 27 2017

    The IBA (International Bar Association) Annual Conference will take place in Sydney this year, from 8 to 13 October 2017. A team of nine Houthoff Buruma partners will be representing the firm at the event. Besides participating in different aspects of the conference, we will be devoting a lot of attention to meeting the firms in our international friends network. Once again we will be organising a high-profile event, this time in the form of an informal beach party on Bondi Beach. This will make us the only firm that hasn't opted for the area around the Opera House. We will be welcoming more than 300 guests from leading international firms during this annual event.   

    Houthoff House
    Like last year, the Houthoff Buruma team will be staying in the ‘Houthoff House’: an accommodation designated specifically for the occasion, located this time in Elizabeth Bay. This informal and stunning environment will form the setting for meetings with our best friends. The Houthoff Buruma delegation will comprise the following people from our offices in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and London:

    Edward de Bock (Managing Partner and Employment Law Partner),
    Michiel Pannekoek (Managing Partner and Corporate/M&A Partner),
    Michiel Wesseling (Corporate/M&A Partner),
    Gerard Gispen (Insolvency & Restructuring Partner),
    Hans Londonck Sluijk  (Insurance & Reinsurance Partner),
    Jan-Paul van der Hoek (Corporate/M&A Partner),
    Sylvia Dikmans (Tax Partner ), 
    Jessica Terpstra (Financial Markets Partner) and
    Alexander de Swart (Corporate Criminal Law Partner).
