bureau Brandeis expands with new partner Simone Peek

Simone Peek has joined Amsterdam based litigation firm bureau Brandeis as a partner. Her practice focuses on complex cases on financial law and other regulatory disputes. She also advises on risk management and compliance.

Simone Peek joins bureau Brandeis from Clifford Chance, where for more than 10 years she represented companies and their directors in regulatory enforcement actions and related proceedings.

“Simone’s appointment perfectly demonstrates our continued strategy to grow into litigation firm with broad reach and unparalleled expertise,” says Christiaan Alberdingk Thijm, one of the founders of bureau Brandeis. “Simone is an important piece of the puzzle to realize our ambition. Her unique knowledge and experience in the field of financial law will be invaluable for our clients.”

Corporate litigation partner Frank Peters: “With Simone we further strengthen our litigation capacity. Simone brings specific sector knowledge of the financial markets. Her experience in cross-border litigation and her time in Washington, D.C. will help expand our practice in the United States.”

Simone Peek: “I am very impressed with the experience of the team, the drive and focus, and strong commitment to clients. This fits in seamlessly with my practice. It is so important in sensitive discussions with regulators and other parties, where reputation is as much at stake as financial risks and more and more often directors are concerned individually.”

bureau Brandeis specializes in litigation and acts for companies in all areas of the law, with a preference for the challenger. Corporate litigation, commercial litigation, privacy, financial law, administrative law, intellectual property, media and entertainment, international arbitration, cassation and antitrust law. With the arrival of Simone the firm now has 25 attorneys.
