IP boutique Hoyng Monegier has picked up Hogan Lovells partner Carla Schoonderbeek, less than 18 months after she joined the international firm from Nauta Dutilh.
Schoonderbeek joins Hoyng Monegier’s Amsterdam office as a partner along with lawyer Bart Jong, who becomes a counsel at the firm. The duo were part of a team that moved to Hogan Lovells from Nauta Dutilh in June last year (1 June 2011). They will work out of both the Netherlands and Belgium.
Schoonderbeek and Jong’s appointments will strengthen Hoyng Monegier’s life sciences regulatory practice. She focuses on the regulation of pharmaceutical products within the EU, litigating before European and national authorities and courts.
Hoyng Monegier managing partner Willem Hoyng said in a statement: “We’re delighted to welcome Carla on board. Her arrival means that our clients now, more than ever, can benefit at a European level from top-notch regulatory advice, combined with a seamless IP strategy.”
Hoyng Monegier was formed when a group of partners from now-defunct firm Howrey left two years ago (11 October 2010). With Schoonderbeek, the firm now has 21 partners across offices in Amsterdam, Brussels, Madrid and Paris.
