K&L Gates is opening a new office in Brussels today (1 February) as the US firm continues to expand its presence in Europe. The firm has recruited two partners from US rival McDermott Will & Emery to launch the new base. Brussels-based duo Philip Torbol and Patrice Corbiau have been handed a remit to build up the firm's offering in the Belgian capital, although the specific number of laterals the firm plans to recruit is as yet unconfirmed. The new office opening is a part of the US firm's aggressive expansion strategy for Europe. The firm has launched six European offices in rapid succession, with a London base opened in 2005, Paris in 2008, Frankfurt in 2009, and Moscow and Warsaw in 2010.
