De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek

Over De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek 

De Brauw: widely recognised as the leading international law firm in the Netherlands. Our global approach; our long-term
commitment to our clients; and our embrace of our role in society, makes De Brauw a uniquely special collective.
While nourishing deep roots in Dutch society, our clients and our legal advice are truly international. From our headquarters
in Amsterdam, we act as clients’ lead strategic and trusted adviser, delivering global support through our:
• offices in London, Brussels, Shanghai and Singapore;
• network of Best Friends’ firms; and
• long-standing relationships with top-tier law firms abroad.

Our independence ensures our autonomy to choose, and to collaborate with, only the very best.

Does that include you?

Twice a year, every year, we actively recruit bright and diverse legal talent to join our unique legal training institute. Here, in
De Brauwerij (for Dutch lawyers) and The Brewery (for our international associates), the continuous development of our
lawyers, tax advisers and notaries not only begins, but is inextricably coupled with their personal growth, so that they emerge
as the next generation of top-tier legal talent.

Our unique approach requires high levels of creativity, business integrity, diversity of thinking and a collaborative mindset to
guarantee our standards in the way that we represent our clients. Our senior leadership traditionally comes from within our own
ranks, trained by the generations before them in how we work. This is something we value highly and is uniquely De Brauw.

Can you picture yourself at De Brauw?

Well, why don’t you come and see for yourself. You may well be surprised.

If you are in your final year of your Bachelor or master’s degree in law, Tax or Notarial Law, you may apply for a place on our annual business course. You will work on one of our pro bono matters and experience first-hand what it is like to have the opportunity to make a social contribution as a future lawyer, as well as enjoy many fun and social activities. Student traineeships and law assistant opportunities are also an excellent way to dip your toe in the water, to get to know us and the type of work that we do. With unique opportunities in every practice area, you will be able to learn, have fun, and make invaluable contacts. And, who knows, you may find out that you are hungry for more.
