Hume Brophy has boosted its public and regulatory affairs team in financial services with the hire of the Czech Republic’s financial attaché to the EU, Lucie Binová, as Account Director.
During her 5 years at the Czech Permanent Representation Lucie was actively involved in the negotiation of almost all of the post-crisis EU legislation regulating the financial sector. At national and EU level she brings a wealth of experience dealing with regulation across the industry, including banking, capital markets, insurance and reinsurance, investment management and FinTech.
She joins a growing team led by Victor van Hoorn, who has been promoted to the new role of Head of Financial Services in the firm’s Brussels office.
Head of Financial Services at Hume Brophy’s Brussels office, Victor van Hoorn, said:
“Lucie’s experience in the Council builds on Hume Brophy’s existing team of Senior Consultants with European Parliament expertise, bolstering our capacity to add tremendous value to our clients in their engagement with the EU institutions. I very much look forward to working closely with Lucie as our team expands further.”
Lucie Binová said:
“Hume Brophy has a deep understanding of the financial services industry, as well as an impressive client roster, and I am delighted to be joining a leading firm in the sector. I have been impressed by the firm’s approach and look forward to working with the team to grow Hume Brophy’s business in the EU and beyond.”
