K&L Gates has made its second Brussels partner hire in a month, taking Taylor Wessing partner Jeroen Smets to boost its corporate practice.
The US firm previously hired McKenna Long & Aldridge competition partner Flavia Distefano (13 September 2011), the first lateral for the office since its establishment in February this year.
