Biography • Arbitration - Lawyers

Marnix Leijten heads De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek's arbitration practice. Marnix acts as counsel in arbitrations globally, as well as in complex multi-jurisdictional litigation and arbitration-related court proceedings. Marnix has particular experience in energy and natural resources as well as M&A disputes.

Marnix has been the Dutch member of the ICC International Court of Arbitration in Paris since 2006 and is editor and co-author of the Commentary on Dutch Arbitration Law: A Guide to the NAI Arbitration Rules.

Based on client feedback, Chambers reports that he is a “brilliant and driven” practitioner, lauded for his arbitration work and his handling of high-profile cases in the energy sector. Additionally, he "has impressed clients as a strategic thinker and devoted counsellor". One interviewee adds, “Apart from giving spot-on analysis, he made the effort to really get to know our company.” Marnix was selected as a leading litigator in the Netherlands by Chambers in 2013, and as a leading arbitration counsel by The Legal 500 in 2013. Marnix won ILO's 2011 and 2012 Client Choice Award for best litigation lawyer in the Netherlands, and was elected in 2014 as the Netherlands' best arbitration counsel by Euromoney Legal Media.
