Brussels-based EU and international trade boutique Stanbrook & Hooper has appointed a new managing partner as it steps up its international strategy
Senior partner Clive Stanbrook will hand over day-to-day management to Scott Crosby.
Stanbrook is spending more time in North America and Asia, but will continue to develop its antitrust practice and its international promotion.
The 25-lawyer firm has recently been through various changes. Last month it launched its Beijing-based alliance, Stanbrook East Associates, while its Norwegian ally Qvist & Partners merged with Swedish firm Magnusson & Wahlin.
Crosby said that a merger with Magnussons is a possibility. "We want to develop a link as much as possible and, if it seems sensible to merge, we'll merge," he stated.
