How can we help you?

  • Business Support
  • Brussels Office

Our Brussels office is looking for a Business Development Manager.

With a rich history dating back to 1724, NautaDutilh has always occupied a premier position in the legal services sector in the Netherlands and later the Benelux. We are particularly known for the wide range of sectors we serve. We are very well regarded for our expertise in the fields of litigation & arbitration, corporate (M&A), capital markets, banking & finance, financial regulatory, restructuring & insolvency, insurance, corporate investigations, real estate and tax. We are also strong in the areas of competition, employment, funds, telecoms, IT, IP and public law. We combine expertise in practice areas relevant to our clients with an in-depth understanding of their sectors and the strategic and economic drivers. 

We support clients not only in our home markets of the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg but worldwide, as a significant number of our clients are involved in cross-border or multi-jurisdictional transactions and proceedings. To this end, we work with a high-quality network of leading law firms in all major jurisdictions and financial centres, with which we cooperate intensively on a non-exclusive basis. We also have a strong presence on the American and British markets thanks to our offices in New York and London. In recent years, our cooperation with law firms in China, India and other emerging markets has increased. Our success can largely be attributed to our ability to combine established national roots and client portfolios with a strong international network.  Our culture, which is characterised by a focus on quality, client-mindedness and a solution-driven approach, is also key to achieving excellent results. 

We aim to help clients achieve their business goals by anticipating and addressing their legal needs and associated business challenges and opportunities. The main pillars of our strategy are "the client first", "leading amongst our peers" and the "power of the collective". These are key to achieving our main goals: growing and excelling in terms of client and employee satisfaction, enhancing our reputation, increasing client volume and attracting innovative matters.  

In general, we wish to increase the commercial impact of the firm. More specifically, we have set ourselves the goal of generating more and better quality business in the Benelux market with corporates and financial institutions. The Business Development, Marketing & Communications team (the "BMC team") supports our lawyers and the firm as a whole in realising these commercial objectives. 

The Position:

  • Guiding partners, counsel and senior associates in their BD efforts and helping to acquire new clients and expand existing client relationships. 

You will be based in Brussels. You will report to the BMC Director in Amsterdam and align actions with the managing partners of the Brussels and Luxembourg offices. The BMC Operations Manager in Brussels, with whom you will coordinate various activities, will be your peer. 

Skills and competencies:
•    Bachelor’s degree in marketing or a related field
•    French, Dutch and English (fluent)
•    At least 3-5 years' experience in business development as well as previous law firm experience are highly desirable.
