Van Bael & Bellis is a leading independent law firm based in Brussels, with offices in London and Geneva. We are perhaps the only independent law firm headquartered in Brussels with a truly international dimension, both in terms of lawyers and clients.

Established more than 35 years ago, our firm has grown to include about 80 lawyers from 25 different countries. While our working language is English, our lawyers speak more than 25 different languages.

Since our inception, we have developed a reputation as one of the most skilful teams of lawyers in our areas of expertise. We provide specialised advice to clients ranging from multinationals, government bodies and top-tier law firms around the globe.

We offer our clients the support of a highly effective team of professionals with multi-jurisdictional expertise and a truly international perspective. We work on complex, high-end international assignments, which require deep knowledge of the law, yet practical results for our demanding clients.

Our transactions team – corporate M&A and finance & projects – is consistently ranked as one of the leading independent transactional practices in Belgium. It is one of the fast-growing departments of the firm.

The finance & projects team joined VBB in January 2022 from a leading global law firm, and is rapidly expanding. It handles all sorts of banking transactions but also has a genuinely market-leading position in project finance, handling many of the most complex projects in Belgium, whether in renewable energy or in relation to large PPP projects.

Our transactional lawyers truly enjoy the dynamics of negotiating and closing deals. We deliver strategic and legal advice on all types of Belgian and cross-border transactions.

The finance & projects team is now seeking to accelerate its expansion through the focused hire of a Banking associate with several years of experience in finance & projects.

You are a Belgian-qualified lawyer with excellent academic credentials. An additional Master’s degree from an English-speaking university is a plus.

You have 3 to 5 years of relevant experience in banking, finance and projects at a reputable law firm, or as an in-house counsel.

You are fluent in English, and Dutch or French, with a proficient knowledge of the other national language. You are entrepreneurial, a team player, able to work independently and professionally confident.

We offer you challenging work in a stimulating and dynamic international environment, with motivated, enthusiastic and very collegial colleagues.

You will be offered a highly attractive remuneration package in accordance with your experience.

You will be given the opportunity to work on high-profile cases, with extensive client and market exposure, and you will be stimulated to develop your own growth path. Whilst you will be part of an integrated team, you will also enjoy a lot of independence and will have the chance to develop your own initiatives.

The firm invests heavily in its people, and prides itself on maintaining a friendly, informal and sociable working atmosphere with respect for work-life balance. You will also be offered the opportunity to go on secondment with clients or best-friend law firms abroad.

In view of the growth perspectives of the transaction services offering, you will have real future career prospects with us as a lawyer, both short and long-term.
