Job Description

Please note we will be prioritizing and reviewing applications from candidates who apply directly through our career portal, and we will not be considering applications submitted by recruitment agencies at this time.

We are looking to expand our team with a talented, ambitious and experienced associate to join our dynamic Global Financial Markets practice in Brussels.  We see a fit with a motivated lawyer who enjoys working on challenging transactions, often with a cross-border element. This role will suit someone who is proactive, analytical, and enthusiastic about the prospect of joining a market-leading banking and finance practice.


You have successfully obtained a Belgian Master's degree in law and possibly an additional degree abroad. You have an excellent academic record, complemented by three to six years of practical experience in a banking, finance or capital markets practice. You are fluent in English, French and Dutch. You have built solid technical and commercial skills that are complemented by a genuine interest in banking and finance matters and an entrepreneurial drive. You are a team player ready to put clients at the heart of your professional engagement through your strong client service ethic, initiative and drive.

Company Description

Our Global Financial Markets practice is a closely knit team made up of experienced specialists whose market knowledge, pragmatism and commercial approach has earned it a strong reputation as a global and local leader in banking, finance and debt capital markets. The depth and scope of our experience means we are ideally placed to advise on all types of financings, including debt capital markets.

You will find our clients in commercial and industrial sectors, the financial investor community, governments, regulators, trade bodies, and not-for-profit organisations. But no matter who they are or why they have reached out to us, we provide a world-class service every step of the way. And that is possible thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit and conscientious approach to work that you will find across all of our teams.

The financial markets team also works closely with our pre-eminent corporate, private equity and infrastructure practices. The experience of our specialist industry and geographical teams allows us to understand the key issues facing our clients and to provide astute commercial solutions that help to achieve our client's objectives more efficiently.
