The Commercial Contracts and Litigation Practice Team

Liedekerke Wolters Waelbroeck Kirkpatrick (“Liedekerke”) is a leading independent Belgian law firm, with over 120 lawyers in Brussels and in London, and strongly tied to the international Lex Mundi network. Our firm is recognised for its innovative thinking and legal expertise. We are a full-service firm, providing contentious and non-contentious advice in every key business practice area.
 
 
What we do

Our commercial contracts & litigation team assists clients in numerous sectors to determine the most appropriate business scheme, to deal with business-critical situations and to prevent or resolve disputes.
In addition to advising on standard contracts we have significant experience in creating franchising or distribution networks, industrial construction and engineering, energy supply and distribution, joint ventures and complex production and transformation contracts in key industrial sectors such as chemicals, agro-business, the food industry and mining.
 
Although we aim primarily to avoid litigation by preventing or defusing disputes, legal proceedings sometimes are the only way forward. Our lawyers are sharp litigators and have earned a strong track record of successful results in trials and arbitration procedures of contractual disputes.
 
Our clients include major multinational companies as well as domestic companies. Whether based in Belgium or active on the Belgian/European market, they operate in a large variety of sectors, such as oil refinery, chemicals, automotive, energy, construction and engineering, pharmaceuticals, retail, services, and others.
 
 
What we offer

The associate who considers to start his/her career at our firm can expect:
 
  • A multilingual, open and stimulating environment
  • Direct client contact from day one
  • Interesting and high profile cases
  • A true commitment to your education and training
  • Opportunities to build your network of clients and contacts
  • Top notch financial conditions.
 
What we expect

We are looking for a bright associate who is interested in a long term career in Commercial Contracts and Litigation (with a focus on Transport and Aviation). You may have built up experience at another law firm, or elsewhere, although this is not a requirement. What is important for us is that you are solution oriented, that you are eager to learn and that you love to work in team. You have a first class Belgian law degree and Dutch as your mother tongue, with a very good command of French and English.
