As our legal associate, you will support both Fortino Capital Partners, as AIFM, and the funds managed by Fortino Capital, as well as related transactional work and support to the funds’ portfolio companies.

After an onboarding phase, you will have a lot of autonomy working in a team of professionals who value the highest standards. 

In addition, you will have the opportunity to directly interact with the management teams of some of the brightest tech start-ups in Europe.

With our offices located in Antwerp and Amsterdam, and our plans to expand beyond these two locations, you should be willing to travel in the coming years 20% of your time.
