As a lawyer, you are fully integrated into BBL from day one. You will have a slate of demanding and complex clients that require you to take on a great deal of responsibility because our clients are not just companies but are also the people behind them.
We are, therefore, not looking for clerks who simply chug through a to-do list but we are seeking equals; like-minded colleagues and future partners who can rise to the challenge and want to develop themselves further. It’s one reason why we give young graduates the freedom they need to work on a part-time doctorate project.
We don’t appreciate technical arrogance, rather we prefer above-average legal talent, which should also be exhibited in impressive exam grades. A doctorate or a degree (also soon to be completed) obtained abroad is a definite advantage. We also expect our junior lawyers to have social skills, a degree of fluency in languages and a confident, natural demeanour. You will fit right in with us if you are interested in economic relationships, think analytically and entrepreneurially, and enjoy operating in a professional and, at the same time, humorous team.
As a graduate lawyer or graduate of another equivalent economic or legal educational institution, you can obtain employment with us as an insolvency and receivership clerk. If you are characterised by a confident demeanour, an interest in economic and legal issues, can work independently or as part of a team and display a high degree of commitment, it is absolutely possible for you to enjoy a professional future at BBL.
After a comprehensive induction, you will be ready to independently take on insolvency proceedings. Your tasks will include drafting expert opinions for insolvency courts, coordinating company continuations and preparing important decisions for the insolvency administrator.
As a trainee lawyer or intern, we involve you in day-to-day client work from the moment you start. As part of a team that includes our experienced lawyers, you will work on exciting, challenging tasks that will advance you professionally and personally. Just between us: it wouldn’t be the first time that a legal career has been built – yes, with us – on the back of skills and talent evidenced during your studies or legal clerkship.
We offer those trainee lawyers with sound general legal knowledge and a more than passing interest in corporate and insolvency law the opportunity to work proactively, and with a large degree of responsibly, in consultancy and/or in litigation in insolvency administration.
As a trainee lawyer, in order for us to actively engage you in tasks for our interesting clients, you should be available for at least 24 hours a week.
Our insolvency administrators, lawyers and clerks do a responsible job each and every day. We rely on the solid support of our desk-based and business teams, who have equal responsibility for ensuring that the back office runs smoothly and professionally.
To this end, we are seeking paralegals, as well as clerks for office management or as accountants, who have the same clear goal as we do: to perform to the best of our ability in conjunction with our fellow professionals.
