Petra Zijp, Managing Partner, NautaDutilh N.V.

We at NautaDutilh are very sorry for the loss of your beloved senior partner Rob. Kindly allow me on behalf of all of us at NautaDutilh to express our deepest sympathies to you and all your partners and employees as you go through this period of shock and grief.

Rob was not only a successful legal professional and inspiring leader, but also a thorough gentleman, a warm and kind person. We have had the honor of meeting him personally several times in South Africa, in New York and during IBA Conferences all over the world. These meetings were always such a pleasure! His memory and way of leading a law firm shall always be an asset for us.

We wish all of you at Bowmans strength to bear such a terrible loss.
