What the team is known for A comprehensive full-service practice in the Netherlands with a rich tradition of working with international clients across a broad range of transactions and contentious matters. Its role in international legal matters typically involves a mixture of inbound work for global corporations hailing from the US, the UK, France and Germany, as well as advising on outbound transactions for Dutch and Belgian clients through its Benelux-wide team.

NautaDutilh is regarded as a firm with a strong pedigree in banking and finance work and a particular specialism in helping financial institutions with regulatory issues which require co-ordination across jurisdictions. The Amsterdam team is also often instructed by Dutch banks on cross-border securitisation matters. The firm's highly reputable and experienced dispute resolution team is also a major attraction for international clients and receives praise for its work in high-profile international arbitration and commercial and financial litigation.

Strengths NautaDutilh has an enduring reputation for excellent cross-border capabilities in the banking and finance space, with clients saying: "If it has international aspects we prefer to have it with Nauta," adding that the team is "well positioned internationally and it's easy for them to obtain advice elsewhere because of their connections and reputation."

Clients praise the firm's handling of cross-border deals: "Nauta were good at co-ordinating," praising the team's "really effective and good work."

Clients value the firm's ability to co-ordinate advice across its own offices and its best friend firms: "They do have office in the UK and New York and very good partnerships in Switzerland and Italy - but they are the point of contact and can translate our legal questions. I like to have one single point of contact."
