Paralegal Regulatory Enforcement

Anti-corruption, corporate fraud, settlements, Deferred Prosecution Agreements, corporate investigations. Does this ring a bell?  Does the idea of working on these topics as part of our investigations practice excite you? If so, this is the job for you!

De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek is looking for an enthusiastic paralegal who would like to share his or her talents with our Corporate Crime & Investigations practice (CCI), which forms part of our Regulatory Enforcement group. Together with our senior professional support lawyers, legal project managers, lawyers and other team members, you recognise the importance of capturing, contributing, sharing, developing and disseminating know-how firm-wide.

About our practice

De Brauw’s CCI team advises and represents major corporations, financial institutions and prominent individuals in a wide range of regulatory and criminal enforcement matters regarding inter alia securities laws, insider trading, competition law, economic sanctions, anti-corruption laws and other regulatory regimes. What makes our practice different from similar practices at other law firms is that we combine our criminal and regulatory law practices in one team. Our CCI practice, which consists of 25 lawyers, is at the forefront of the growing internationalisation of criminal and regulatory investigations, where international fraud and corruption matters are increasingly investigated by regulators and criminal authorities in different jurisdictions.

De Brauw acts as lead counsel in these matters, coordinating internal and external corporate investigations worldwide. We devise strategies to navigate this complex landscape and to avoid the ‘piling on’ of investigations and sanctions. Our recent matters have involved authorities and agencies from throughout the world.

  • supporting the practice in business development, including external publications such as newsletters and client pitches
  • organising and preparing theme lunches and breakfast sessions
  • collaborating with different expert teams to help develop and implement new working methods
  • standardising, automating and innovating the ‘know-how’ within the organisation
  • training and coaching students

  • has at least a law degree at Master’s level, or has experience in a similar paralegal role
