Koen Van Den Broeck has joined European law firm Fieldfisher in its Brussels dispute resolution practice as of 5 October 2021. Van Den Broeck, a former Allen&Overy litigation partner, has more than 30 years of expertise and experience in domestic and international litigation and arbitration and joins the dispute resolution practice to focus on developing the arbitration practice.

Jean-Fran├žois Germain, Co-Managing Partner and head of the dispute resolution team, commented: "Koen’s arrival to Fieldfisher is great news to drive our practice area’s growth and we look forward to working together with him.

"Koen brings a first class experience in litigation and arbitration, both domestic and international, covering a large area of expertise from distribution and international trade law to corporate disputes and insolvency.

"We are extremely pleased to have him on board and to further develop together our capabilities in Belgium and abroad.

Fieldfisher's dispute resolution team in Brussels benefits from the firm’s wider European presence and has developed strong ties with other offices across Europe, and more particularly Paris and London, which enables it to provide truly multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional advice. This is particularly important in the field of international arbitration, as it enables the Brussels team to work closely with colleagues based in Paris and London - two of the biggest arbitration hubs in the world.

Van Den Broeck said, "I am excited about this opportunity and look forward to working with the Fieldfisher dispute resolution team and to support the further growth of Fieldfisher's successful arbitration practice together with Maxime Berlingin and his team."

Focusing on complex corporate, civil and commercial litigation, Fieldfisher's Dispute Resolution team advises on prominent, complex and high-profile cases and has represented well-known companies in all stages of court and administrative proceedings.
