Loyens & Loeff’s Bastiaan Kemp appointed as Professor of Corporate Governance and Corporate Regulation

Amsterdam, 8 April 2020 – Bastiaan Kemp, lawyer and senior associate at international law and tax firm Loyens & Loeff, has been appointed Professor of Corporate Governance and Corporate Regulation at Maastricht University (UM). Bastiaan takes up this part-time position in addition to his corporate litigation and corporate advisory practice at Loyens & Loeff.

Bram Linnartz, Managing Partner: “We strongly believe in providing room for our employees to empower themselves, and this is an excellent example of that. Corporate governance is at the heart of our firm’s legal practice, and an important and growing focus area. Bastiaan’s appointment is, therefore, a great addition to our expertise in this rapidly evolving market.”

This appointment will significantly add to the corporate governance expertise of the practice group Corporate Litigation & Risk Management. It is also a testimony to the firm’s long standing tradition of combining practice with academia and education. Bastiaan’s research will primarily focus on the position of shareholders towards the company, and the division of powers between the Board and the General Meeting of Shareholders.

Before his appointment as professor, Bastiaan already held the position of assistant professor at the Faculty of Law (UM). He also holds the position of vice-academic director of the Institute for Corporate Law, Governance and Innovation Policies at Maastricht University.
