We proudly announce our ranking and recommendation as a leading law firm in the recently published edition of major global legal directory The Legal 500 Series EMEA.

In addition, we are proud to announce that Martijn van Broeckhuijsen, founder of Shearwaters, has maintained his status as a “highly recommended and leading lawyer” in the 2017 Chambers Europe legal directory.

These international awards are based on in-depth, objective research (including feedback from our clients) on our firm’s work over the preceding 12 months.

Shearwaters thanks its clients and the legal directories for their continued support.

Martijn van Broeckhuijsen and Maarten Vestering, co-heads of Shearwaters, said:

“This confirms what has already been an excellent start of 2017 for Shearwaters. Our team continues to bring in high profile mandates of Dutch corporate employment law in the international business environment, acting for leading international businesses and top executives.

We are humbled by this international recognition, yet also very confident and optimistic. It not only confirms the relevance of the niche we found, but also our strong track record as a seasoned team of committed and trusted advisors with a global mindset. The rankings motivate us to continue to go from strength to strength and underpin the real measure of success for the work we do: client satisfaction.”
