Bird & Bird has swooped on Loyens & Loeff in Brussels, hiring IP/IT and media practice head Benoit Van Asbroeck.
Van Asbroeck joins with two senior assistants Edwige Cottenie and Laurent Masson. He specialises in IT outsourcing and contractual disputes, but also has experience in copyright, trade mark and licensing matters with an emphasis on media work.
Paul Hermant, managing partner of Bird & Bird’s Belgium office in Belgium said: “Benoit’s profile perfectly complements the practice built by IT and Aviation partner Catherine Erkelens.”
Loyens is left with one partner, Yves van Couter, in the IP/IT and media group.
