About Daan Baas


Daan works as attorney/partner in the Liability & Insurance department at Dirkzwager. Daan specialises in liability and insurance law, and focuses on D&O liability, professional liability, corporate liability insurance (AVB), product liability and coverage disputes. Daan frequently provides advice and litigates before the civil court and in arbitration proceedings. He is regularly involved in major cross-border and international disputes.
Daan was Deputy Registrar at the Board of Discipline in Amsterdam. He pays special attention to professional liability (notaries/lawyers/doctors/brokers/etc.) and disciplinary law.
Daan has been an attorney since 2006. He worked for a major law firm in Amsterdam until 2012, and then embarked on a journey by land from the Netherlands to South Africa (and back). He has worked as an attorney with Dirkzwager since 2013. He frequently publishes and teaches within his field of expertise.

He is ranked in Band 2 in Chambers Europe: 'Daan Baas is a highly respected operator, who is particularly sought after for high-value contentious cases, often working on behalf of the insurer. His focus is on professional liability, product liability and D&O matters, but he is equally proficient in policy coverage mandates. An interviewee notes his "sophisticated" approach, and suggests that "if you have a difficult case you need Daan Baas.'

He is recommended in Tier 2 in Legal 500: ‘Daan Baas is well appreciated as co-counsel, always has a clear approach.’
