De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek – Law Assistant – Corporate Advisory
LAW ASSISTANT – CORPORATE ADVISORY
We are looking for a student who has a keen interest in notarial or corporate law.
You will be employed as a law assistant on a part-time basis, for 15 hours per week, for a period of atleast six-months.
Our Corporate Advisory practice has unrivalled expertise across the full spectrum of corporate matters. We handle complex national and cross-border transactions and are a trusted adviser for both private and public clients.
We advise on the response measures and corporate governance aspects of shareholder activism or hostile takeovers, restructuring, joint ventures, the corporate governance aspects of an upcoming IPO, and much more. We are the principal corporate legal adviser for many publicly listed clients on Euronext Amsterdam and abroad, and are equally proud to assist start-ups with the experience we have in both mature and new or developing markets.
Our experts repeatedly contribute to initiating, shaping and acting at the forefront of major new corporate law developments, and take pride in going the extra mile to find creative solutions for our clients, understanding their business context and the jurisdictions in which they operate. Our Corporate Advisory experts are at the heart of what we do as a firm and their expertise permeates throughout our complex matters across all areas of expertise.
What you can expect as a law assistant
Your activities as a law assistant in the Corporate Advisory team consists of a combination of ‘know-how’ related work and assisting lawyers in the group’s daily practice (including literature and case law research, the preparation of presentations, memo’s and research for internal and external publications). You will be working in a pool together with other law assistants of the practice and will have ample opportunity to get to know our candidate civil law notaries and lawyers.
As a law assistant, you will be able to participate fully in all of our educational and social programmes (both those which are practice specific, and those arranged for the whole firm). You will also participate in our Introduction Day, and have the opportunity to meet other colleagues starting at the same time, in different roles across the firm. Ideally you will share a room with one of our lawyers, and be able to accompany them to any court hearings and client meetings.
However, to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all of our employees (and to comply with national restrictions on working practice during the pandemic), remote working or a hybrid arrangement may be necessary. We use the latest tools and applications to connect, collaborate and work together and would ask for your flexibility and tenacity to embrace whatever the current remote or hybrid working arrangements may be at the time that you start.

- a Master’s student with strong academic record;
- eager and excited to learn;
- meticulous and well-organised;
- proactive and flexible;
- interested in corporate law;
- a great team-player;
- enthusiastic and driven; and you have excellent Dutch and English language skills,
then we very much look forward to hearing from you.
