In Memory of Gerhard Gispen
13 May 2020
It is with great disbelief and sorrow that we must inform you that our highly esteemed colleague and fellow managing partner Gerhard Gispen passed away unexpectedly on 13 May 2020. Our thoughts and sympathy go out to his wife and children and all those for whom he was dear.
We are saddened and shocked by this sudden loss of our beloved board member, partner, colleague and friend with whom we have worked with so much pleasure.
Gerhard joined Houthoff in 2016 as a top tier lawyer and partner in the Restructuring and Insolvency practice. His extensive experience and reputation have contributed greatly to the growth of our firm in recent years. He joined the board of Houthoff in 2019, and in our work together, we came to know him as a passionate and collegial managing partner, with a determined spirit, a big heart and great ambitions for the entire firm. We owe him a huge debt of gratitude for everything he has done. Gerhard had reached the age of 60.
It is hard for us not to be able to come together now to find support. Nevertheless, we find that support in the great collegiality of all of our colleagues.
We will miss Gerhard dearly.
Edward de Bock and Albert Knigge
The Board of Houthoff
24 January 1960 - 13 May 2020
