De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek

De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek


 De Brauw is universally regarded as one of the leading law firms in the Netherlands. Few Dutch firms can match the quality of our people and expertise in each of our corporate, financing
 and litigation practices. 

Our restructuring team is dedicated to the design and negotiation of complex, international high-impact (debt)restructurings, and related litigation and advisory work.

We offer clients a single point of contact for financing, debt restructuring, board fiduciary duties, corporate reorganisation, claw back risks, insolvency-related litigation and advice, and stakeholder management. 
This integrated approach has proven a unique selling point in recent multinational restructuring mandates.  

De Brauw is the oldest Dutch law firm in the INSOL International Group of 36 and is involved in almost every major Dutch restructuring or insolvency.

By teaming up with the corporate, finance and insolvency practices of leading firms in Europe, the United States, and Asia, we are able to offer seamless cross-border services to our clients.


The breadth and depth of De Brauw’s legal capabilities in all relevant areas, including corporate, contract, security and insolvency law, related litigation and in regulatory matters, ensure that our 
restructuring team is at the forefront of legal developments in the Netherlands.


Ranked Tier 1 by the Legal 500.

De Brauw has a long-standing tradition in the restructuring and insolvency fields, and the firm has been involved in “virtually every” milestone Dutch restructuring or insolvency over 
the last three decades, as well as many major multi-jurisdictional cases.
