Atenor is a leading real estate developer, listed on Euronext.

The activity of Atenor is focused on office and residential projects in Belgium, Luxembourg, Romania, Hungary, France, The Netherlands, Portugal, Germany and Poland (over 1.250.000 sqm in development). Atenor is actively aiming to further increase its international diversification, thereby analyzing several real estate projects in the above-mentioned and other markets.

Atenor seeks to contribute, through urban planning and careful architectural approaches, to creating appropriate responses to the new requirements of city and professional life, thereby investing in large scale real estate projects, meeting strict criteria, in prime locations, with outstanding technical quality, and taking into account the costs of the investment and the conditions of renting and sale.

Atenor is a reliable economic player in the development of the urban fabric, in light of the economic, demographic and sociological developments affecting the sustainability of our environment.

All current projects are listed on

The activities are managed by a cohesive team of about 100 people (all countries combined) under the direction of Stephan Sonneville, the Managing Director and CEO, who also chairs the Executive Committee.

The need for hiring a Legal Advisor is mostly related to the continuing expansion of activities and the multiplication and internationalization of real estate projects activities.

The work on Belgian projects will, by definition, be more hands-on than the work related to the projects abroad, outside counsel being more implicated in the latter. The Legal Advisor will be reporting to the Legal Director.

The tasks of the Legal Advisor will, among other, be the following:


Real Estate Matters

  • Generally (pro-actively) providing legal support in all development issues.
  • Drafting and negotiating contracts with service providers (such as architects, agents, contractors end engineers).
  • Drafting and negotiating leases, long leases, building rights, easement rights, sales agreements, partnership agreements, etc.
  • Setting up the (co)ownership structure of projects.
  • Drafting model contracts and maintaining a contract library.
  • Managing outside counsel and their performance.
  • Closely cooperating with Project Managers and Directors in all development matters (permitting and administrative procedures, day-to-day issues of partnerships, etc.) and the set-up of and participating in contests and bidding procedures.
  • Transactional and structuring work, including:
    • Managing Due Diligence work and data room organization.
    • Structuring, documenting, drafting and negotiating transactions (acquisitions, financings, letting or sales).
    • Follow-up on transactions (post completion matters, monthly reporting, warranty claims, price/adjustment procedures, etc.).
    • Corporate and tax structuring.

Corporate Matters

  • Drafting and setting-up partnerships, shareholders’ agreements.
  • Managing internal corporate work.
  • Setting-up subsidiaries and special purpose vehicles.

Litigation matters

  • Master in Laws obtained from a Belgian university, with excellent academic credentials.
  • Minimum 5 years of training and experience in a legal function in a law firm or business environment, primarily focusing on real estate law, touching on the wide variety of real estate (development) matters, including civil law and construction matters, contracting matters, administrative and tax law matters, insurance matters as well as company law and urban planning matters.
  • Strong interest in real estate in all its aspects.
  • Relevant experience in participating in (international) project teams with different backgrounds.
  • Proper knowledge of the Belgian real estate sector (and other real estate sectors) and/or a postgraduate degree or a postgraduate course in real estate as well as an active interest in insurance matters would be a great plus.
  • You have an open personality, a strong sense of responsibility, sound ethical values and standards and you are able to work both autonomously and in a team.
  • You are firm in defending Atenor’s interests, while being flexible in contacts and communications.
  • You are good at multitasking, focused, pragmatic and business-oriented, with a keen eye for detail.
  • You have excellent communication and negotiation skills.
  • You are ideally trilingual (French/English/Dutch), additional languages being a plus.

In addition to a motivating and competitive remuneration package, the function offers a unique blend of intellectually challenging and varied work within a project-driven and customer-focused company.
