Willem Jarigsma, banking partner, has relocated to the London offices of Loyens & Loeff. He replaces Vincent Vroom who rejoins the firm’s restructuring practice in Amsterdam. Willem Jarigsma, managing partner of the firm from April 2014 until April 2018, joins tax partner Marc Klerks who also recently moved to London.
Willem, who has headed the firm’s banking practice for many years, is mainly involved in bank lending transactions, particularly, asset based lending and transportation finance. In London, his primary responsibility will be to maintain and build relationships with the firm’s clients in the UK and with law firms based in London. Marc, who was previously based in the New York and London office, currently heads the tax practice of the London office again.
Willem Jarigsma: “The mission of the London office is to highlight our tax and legal strengths to clients. The aim is to have the London office act as a hub where specialists from our offices in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland meet with existing and potential clients. Marc and I will focus on strengthening the Loyens & Loeff brand and to make sure the depth and breadth of our offering is known and understood throughout the UK. The good thing is: we do not start from scratch; we recently celebrated our 25th anniversary in London and much has been achieved in those years already.”
