De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek


De Brauw is part of The Best Friends European Competition Working Group; six law firms who are all market leaders in their country in the field of cross-border competition law. Their approach is to provide their clients with the best law service and focus on quality. De Brauw asked us to design something that will help improve this service, the question they asked us:

How can we assist our clients during a Dawn Raid by regulators and criminal authorities in Europe?

The solution

The European Dawn Raids manual is an online platform which provides companies with practical information to help prepare for a Dawn Raid, as well as step by step instructions during a Dawn Raid. The platform gives an overview on what actions need to be taken by who and how to handle difficult situations. In addition, contact information of the attorneys of the law firms are included in the platform, so they can give assistance where needed.

Adaptive to any situation.

One of the clients wishes was to make sure the platform can adapt to any situation. Therefore we created three different designs for mobile, tablet and desktop. That way you can navigate as efficiently as possible on each device while dealing with a Dawn Raid.

User friendly.

Before building the platform we created a Functional design containing the complete flow and look and feel of the platform. We mapped out all the possible scenario’s the user can encounter during Dawn Raid. Finally, we tested the platform and each design extensively to make sure nothing was overlooked and to guarantee user-friendlyness.

Fully customizable backend.

The Backend of the platform is custom-built by our developers. This provides the client with the oppurtunity to customize it fully to their wishes.
