Our Arbitration section is looking for a student associate with an interest in International Arbitration.

About the roleThis is a fantastic opportunity to get hands-on experience in an international law firm, which will undoubtedly help your understanding of the international arbitration arena. We are looking for candidates that – like us – are passionate about this area of expertise and interested in finding out more about the work that goes into supporting a commercial law firm.

You will be working in a pool together with other Law Assistants of the practice. Your activities as a Law Assistant consist of a combination of ‘know-how’ related work and assisting lawyers in the practice group’s daily practice (including literature and case law research and the preparation of presentations, memo’s and writing newsletters).

Who are you?The ideal candidate for this position is:

  • a third year Bachelor or Master student, with a strong academic record;
  • available for at least six months;
  • eager and excited to learn;
  • meticulous and well-organised;
  • enthusiastic and driven;
  • pro-active and flexible; and
  • has excellent Dutch and English language skills.

Who are we?De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek is a law firm with a global reach. We have a robust corporate practice, a centre of excellence in litigation, and an unparalleled team of regulatory experts. Big matters, big risks and big arenas require multidisciplinary, multinational teams composed of strong strategic thinkers willing to go the extra mile. We believe in striking the right balance between rigour and pragmatism, especially when the stakes are high and the pressure is on.

We put business in a legal context, not the other way around. The needs of our clients go hand in hand with our legal expertise. That is why we strive to recruit people with a variety of interests, experience and nationalities. We look at the bigger picture, and leave no stone unturned on the path to assist our clients. We practise the art and science of collaboration – across all disciplines and national borders – with both our own and other legal experts, in-house counsel, and other specialists.

Headquartered in Amsterdam, we also have bases in Brussels, Frankfurt, London, Shanghai and Singapore. Our Best Friends – a network of premier European law firms – alongside our informal partnerships around the world, together provide access to the best local expertise, as and when required.
