Due to the expansion of our international practice, we are looking for a Solicitor qualified in England & Wales. You would be the designated contact person for our UK Desk, who knows how to build a good relationship with clients in a personal manner. This position (in Amsterdam) would give you a certain level of freedom to develop the team, to help us further strengthen our international concept. Our team based in the Amsterdam office consists of lawyers from 19 different countries.
Are you a commercial talent and do you prefer working in a position which allows you room to develop your ideas? Then this vacancy is intended for you!
