Fraud and white-collar crime Tier 2
Investigations and litigation work are key strengths at Jones Day, which acts for a multinational client base. Group head Aldo Verbruggen advised Nasdaq-listed company Veon on Dutch criminal law issues pertaining to a cross-border bribery investigation conducted by both the US and Dutch authorities.
Jones Day stands out for its 'communication and seamless cooperation between practices and countries' and is a popular choice for cross-border litigation. Group head Gerjanne te Winkel, who has ‘a great understanding of cases’, represented Fortuna Entertainment Group, a betting and gaming group, in a dispute before the Enterprise Chamber of the Amsterdam Court of Appeals brought by three Franklin Templeton investment funds. Coen Drion is 'an excellent lawyer and a good sparring partner for cassation cases'. Other clients include Brigade Capital Management, Trilantic Capital Management and Parem Financial.
Investment funds Tier 3
Jones Day’s investment funds team is led by Ate Veenstra and Quirine Eenhorst, who joined the firm in early 2018 from Clifford Chance. Highlights included advising on the second closing of FMO Climate One Fund, a €1.5bn infrastructure investment fund suite aimed at developing, constructing and re-financing sustainable energy infrastructure projects in Africa.
Private equity Tier 3
Jones Day’s department is led by Floris Pierik, and has a focus on the TMT, life sciences, consumer products, technology, real estate, chemicals and energy sectors, among others. Pierik is advising US private equity fund Arsenal Capital Partners on the controlled auction of its Dutch portfolio company IGM Resins. Recently promoted counsel Bastiaan Kout is a 'stand-out' name. Other team changes include the arrivals of Ton Schutte from De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek and Ate van IJlzinga Veenstra, Quirine Eenhorst and senior associate Marierose Kouwenberg from Clifford Chance.
Restructuring and insolvency Tier 3
Jones Day is acknowledged for its 'strong practice as bankruptcy trustees' as part of a broad practice encompassing corporate and financial restructurings. Team head Jasper Berkenbosch is highlighted for his role as a 'bankruptcy trustees in large bankruptcies and for his pragmatic approach – he can always be trusted to consult with stakeholders so as to reach the outcome that works for everyone'. He is leading the team advising International Automotive Components Group on its global restructuring and refinancing. Coen E. Drion and Gerjanne te Winkel are other core team members.
Tax Tier 3
Jones Day fields ‘a solid, all-round team with great geographical coverage’. Lodewijk Berger is praised for his ‘great ability to navigate through rocky waters’; he advised Owens Corning on its acquisition of Paroc Group from CVC. Collaborating with Floris Pierik, he assisted The Timken Company with its $280m acquisition of Groeneveld Group. Fund structuring partner Ate Veenstra joined from Clifford Chance in early 2018 along with funds specialist Quirine Eenhorst and an associate.
Mike Jansen heads the Jones Day group which counts major US and European multinationals and significant domestic companies among its client list. In a highlight deal, Floris Pierik headed the team that advised US private equity fund Arsenal Capital Partners on the controlled auction of its Dutch portfolio company, IGM Resins. The deal involved colleagues in US, China, and Japan. Ton Schutte joined the team in May 2018 from De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek bringing considerable international M&A expertise.
Employment Tier 4
Jones Day's labour and employment team can connect with specialists in Europe and beyond through its global network, and handles the employment and labour relations matters that arise from acquisitions and reorganisations. The group has especially strong pensions expertise which is spearheaded by the 'excellent' Irene H. Vermeeren who is 'flexible, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with'. Mariëlle Daudt and counsels Cornelien Broersma and Franck van Uden are the key members of the group which coordinated advice to Cardinal Health, following an acquisition, on a variety of labour and employment matters relevant to a number of European jurisdictions and covering employee benefits and executive hiring matters.
