Bird & Bird is an international law firm, with a strong grasp of strategic commercial issues. We combine legal expertise with deep industry knowledge and refreshingly creative thinking to help clients achieve their commercial goals. Our vision is to be the number one law firm for organisations being changed by technology and the digital world.

We have over 1,300 lawyers in 30 offices across Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific, as well as close ties with firms in other parts of the world. To learn more, visit www.twobirds.com.

Our Brussels office covers all areas of business law and brings together more than 40 lawyers from 10 different countries.

Our Brussels office is looking to recruit a junior to mid-level Associate with a passion for EU trade defence law and a keen interest in EU competition law.

Our Brussels-based trade team advises clients in all key areas of EU trade law.  In particular the team helps clients navigate through anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations and is currently handling a significant number of high-profile assignments in front of the European Commission and the European Courts.  Our trade work has expanded significantly over the last two years and you will become part of a growing team which is establishing itself in the market as one of the go-to firms in Brussels for EU trade defence law.

The role

  • You will handle cutting-edge EU trade cases across a broad range of sectors of industry;
     
  • From time to time we will also involve you in EU competition law cases;
     
  • You will work for international clients, and enjoy challenging work‎;
     
  • You will be given responsibility and will have direct client contact in appropriate cases; 
     
  • You will be part of a team that enjoys working together and you will get training and feedback from experienced colleagues;
     
  • You will have an opportunity to develop your legal, business and interpersonal skills, and build your career within the firm; and
     
  • You will have an opportunity to take part in various social activities and events of our Brussels office and internationally.

We would be interested in hearing from you if you have:

  • Obtained excellent results during your studies at a well-respected EU university; an LL.M. in EU (trade/competition) law is an advantage;
     
  • Up to 4 years of experience working in the EU trade defence practice of a law firm;
     
  • An excellent command of English, both orally and in writing; speaking Dutch and/or French is an advantage; and
     
  • A strong appetite for business development activities - our Brussels trade practice is relatively new, so there is a lot of room for you to help us expand the business.

In addition, you should have:

  • The ability to provide clear, precise and practical advice that helps clients in their day-to-day business;
     
  • The ability to manage large projects;
     
  • A commitment to high quality work and to continuously updating your technical expertise;
     
  • The ability to perform under significant time pressure (the deadlines in EU trade defence proceedings can be very challenging…);
     
  • The willingness to go the extra mile for our clients; and
     
  • An interest in working in a team environment with an open, informal and entrepreneurial culture.
