De Brauw wins Chambers' Europe award for "Pro Bono: Outstanding Firm"

Our firm won Chambers' Europe award for "Pro Bono: Outstanding Firm" during last night's ceremony in Paris. This European recognition is an accolade of the assistance our colleagues offer clients whose access to the legal system would otherwise be limited.

Lawyers throughout our firm work on pro bono matters, yet Machteld de Monchy, Marjolein Portman, Simone Kooij and Rachel Pouwer developed our pro bono practice into what it is today: an integral part of our offering. Our lawyers work pro bono on legal issues that address fundamental questions of law and often are highly complex. Last year, 211 of our lawyers spent approximately 8500 hours on 75 pro bono matters.

Moreover, our thanks go out to our pro bono partners: NGOs, various firms, network organisations and interest groups that equally help support our clients and make sure the rule of law is available to them. Working together with this wide array of experts, driven professionals and lawyers of different backgrounds has been invaluable.
