Norton Rose in hiring spree for Amsterdam launch

Norton Rose has hired four partners from Dutch firms as it prepares to launch its Amsterdam practice with two-partner Groenewald van Wassenaer

Houthoff Buruma has supplied three of the partners – Ep Hannema, Weero Koster and Gijs van Leeuwen. They will be joined by Marcel van de Vorst from Van Doorne. Van Doorne was also hit by the decision of two other partners, Cornelius Slangen and Emile Uyldert, to leave for an as yet unknown destination.
