Consultant International Business Reorganisations - PwC Legal - PwC

Location: Amsterdam
Employment: Full-time
As a PwC International Business Reorganisations team member, you work, often in close cooperation with foreign PwC offices, on a wide range of activities in the area of Dutch corporate law.

Are you an energetic lawyer with a passion for corporate law? Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit, are you assertive and looking for a challenging role in the area of corporate legal services? Then this vacancy is something for you!

What does your job look like?

As a PwC International Business Reorganisations team member, you work, often in close cooperation with foreign PwC offices, on a wide range of activities in the area of Dutch corporate law. Examples of working activities are:

  • advise on various complex corporate law issues, in which you not only identify legal risks or impossibilities, but are primarily focused on creating solutions;
  • prepare legal documentation for, and advise on, various corporate restructurings (such as incorporations, liquidations, cash repatriations, contributions, (de)mergers and share transfers in the context of (domestic or international) holding or financing structures or STAK structures));
  • assist on the implementation and coordination of complex and challenging (international) restructuring projects, such as pre-deal carve-outs and post-deal integrations or business model transformations. Due to the international nature of these projects, in addition to Dutch restructuring instruments you will often be dealing with cross-border restructuring instruments, in which you will be involved from design to implementation;
  • assist owners of (family) businesses with implementing tailor made legal solutions, which often require out-of-the-box thinking.

In addition, you will:

  • use PwC’s LegalTech offerings to streamline complex processes and deliver best-in-class quality;
  • work with local and foreign PwC Legal teams and PwC teams from other lines of services (such as tax, advisory and assurance) to provide integrated solutions for our clients. This is often in close cooperation with external notaries and advisors;
  • build a trusted advisor relationship with your clients.

Who are you?

You would like to develop yourself within an enthusiastic and growing team of legal professionals. You would like to do this in a large, professional organization with a diversity of (international operating) clients in an overall English-speaking environment.

Furthermore, you meet the following criteria:

  • you have a Dutch Master of Laws degree, specializing in corporate law or notarial law (with a focus on corporate law);
  • you are reliable, client focused, outgoing with a good sense of relationship management and a strong sense of responsibility and you are commercially driven;
  • you have an excellent command of the Dutch and English language, verbally and in writing;
  • you prefer to work in an international and multidisciplinary environment;
  • you have excellent analytical thinking skills and you are driven to find innovative solutions to solve important problems our clients are facing as well as to optimise and digitise our way of delivering our services;
  • a background or second study in science, technology, engineering or mathematics is a plus;
  • you are strong in content and have a deep and broad knowledge of Book 2 of the Dutch Civil Code and related legislation and regulations and you are able to express this knowledge in practical advice towards clients;
  • you are eager to learn and have a strong intrinsic motivation to look for solutions in a challenging environment; and
  • you describe yourself as a team player and an ambitious, solution-driven and precise lawyer.
