De Brauw - a law firm with a global reach

We are a law firm with a global reach. We have a robust corporate practice, a centre of excellence in litigation, and an unparalleled team of regulatory experts. Big matters, big risks and big arenas require multidisciplinary, multinational teams composed of strong strategic thinkers willing to go the extra mile. We believe in striking the right balance between rigour and pragmatism, especially when the stakes are high and the pressure is on.

We put business in a legal context, not the other way around. The needs of our clients go hand in hand with our legal expertise. That’s why we strive to recruit people with a variety of interests, experience and nationalities. We look at the bigger picture, and leave no stone unturned on our path to aiding our clients. We practise the art and science of collaboration – across all disciplines and national borders – with both our own and other legal experts, in-house counsel, and other specialists.

Headquartered in Amsterdam, we also have bases in Brussels, Frankfurt, London, New York, Shanghai and Singapore. Our Best Friends – a network of premier European law firms – alongside our informal partnerships around the world mean we have access to the best local expertise as and when required.
