We will shortly be launching in Italy, Spain, Portugal, and the USA as our international expansion continues at a fast pace. As we expand our operations in the EU and globally, it’s vital that we onboard excellent startup-seeking lawyers to both keep us in check and facilitate our fast-paced growth plans.

  • Excellent language skills - English, Dutch
  • Experience and a proven ability in roles requiring excellent analytical skills, legal drafting and outstanding research ability.
