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 and multinational teams composed of strong strategic thinkers willing to dig deep. We believe it is possible to strike a balance between rigour and pragmatism, especially when the stakes are high.

We put business in a legal context, not the other way around. So the needs of our clients come first, legal expertise second. That’s why we go out of our way to recruit graduates and hire people with varied interests, experience and nationalities. They take the long view, leaving no stone unturned along the way. We practise the art and science of collaboration – across all disciplines and national borders – with our own and other legal experts, with in-house counsel, and with other specialists.

In addition to our headquarters in Amsterdam, we have offices in Brussels, Frankfurt, London, New York, Shanghai and Singapore. Our Best Friends – a network of premier European law firms – and our informal network around the world mean we can draw on the best local expertise when and as required.
