Website Liedekerke

Founded in 1965 by lawyers committed to legal excellence, Liedekerke is an independent law firm recognized for its leadership and expertise.

As a client you can rely on flexible and multidisciplinary teams. Each of our practice areas is highly regarded, and our lawyers are recognized for their commitment to our clients’ interests. In cross border matters we assist you with our solid international service capability and our relationships with leading law firms across the world.

With over 110 lawyers, our goal is not to be the largest firm but to be the firm of choice for clients who require trusted advice and innovative and business-aware legal solutions. Although we excel in minimizing conflict, when litigation is unavoidable, we have a record of prevailing in court.

We are looking for an associate to join our Banking & Finance team in September/October 2021
