De Brauw arbitration practice recognised in 10th edition GAR 100

De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek has entered Global Arbitration Review’s 2017 survey of the hundred leading international arbitration practices in the world. The GAR 100 is a guide to the international arbitration capabilities of law firms. According to the GAR, the listed firms ought to assist clients in finding the specialist counsel they seek, and specialist counsel in demonstrating their expertise.

Client comment
A regular client who has used the firm in several high-value disputes says it “clearly beats its competitors in professionalism, preparedness, power of argumentation, alertness, tactics and thorough appreciation and understanding of the issues at stake.”  Marnix Leijten is described as “exceptionally committed, with very strong ethical values and excellent performance both on the strategic level and in execution”; Bregje Korthals-Altes is “very solid” and “makes complex issues less complex”; and Albert Marsman is “outstanding” in hearings. Another client in a commercial dispute says Edward van Geuns is a “strong lawyer, meticulous and very convincing in the arbitration hearings.”
