Since first going into action in 1909, the BESIX Group has over the years grown into a multidisciplinary company with a leading position in its markets: construction, property development and concessions.  BESIX Contracting specializes in construction, infrastructure and marine works, often in contracts with a high level of complexity.  In Benelux and France, the Group’s regional affiliates BESIX Infra, Belemco, Cobelba, Jacques Delens, Vanhout, Wust and Lux TP ensure a strong presence and a local approach.  With Franki Foundations, West Construct, Socogetra, Sanotec and Van den Berg, the Group offers specialist niche solutions for the building market like deep foundations, geo-engineering, road construction, water treatment and cable and pipeline construction.

Backed by their experience in their home markets, they have built up strong positions outside Europe.  A typical example is the Middle East, where over a 50 year period they have built up an impressive portfolio.  This diversification in activities and geography pays off by reducing their risk exposure.

BESIX is looking for a motivated and dynamic Construction Legal Counsel (m/f) to join the legal department based in Brussels.

As Construction Legal Counsel you provide commercial and proactive legal support to business and management, which includes:


  • preparation and review of construction and other agreements (including "overheidsopdrachten/ marchés publics" and PPP’s), standard contracts, general terms and conditions;
  • assistance in contract negotiations;
  • legal risk management of existing contracts and assistance to construction sites;
  • provision of legal advice related to the company's activities essentially in “Contracting Europe”;
  • when required, coordination with external lawyers and advisors;
  • follow up of litigation and assistance to the company in legal disputes.
  • You have a Belgian Master in law degree.
  • You have 5 to 10 years of relevant experience as lawyer or as in-house legal counsel in the construction/ real estate industry.
  • You are fluent in Dutch with a good knowledge of English and/or French, in writing and orally.
  • You are punctual, creative, dynamic with strong analytical skills.
  • You adopt a pragmatic business approach and understand the impact of legal issues on the broader business.
  • You have strong communication and interpersonal skills and are able to work in a demanding environment.
  • You are capable and willing to defend the company's contractual interest and advocate them accordingly internally and externally.
  • You like to work in a team and enjoy sharing knowledge, but you are able to work independently and take on responsibilities.
  • You are flexible and capable of working efficiently in a demanding environment.
  • A challenging position in a growing company with a leading position in its markets.
  • An open-minded working environment and dynamic team offering many opportunities for personal and career development.
  • The possibility to work autonomously and in close contact with Legal & Contract team and the business.
  • An attractive salary and benefit package in line with your experience.
