Business to business debt recovery, both in the Netherlands and internationally.
Bierens is the largest debt recovery law firm in the Netherlands.
We act on behalf of small and medium-sized companies, large enterprises as well as multinationals, based on “No Win, No Fee.”
Bierens is unique in that we take care of both the out of court phase and the judicial debt recovery process. This approach is successful to such an extent that we are able to settle 90% of our cases out of court. In terms of both our results and our low costs, we leave debt collection agencies and bailiffs far behind.
The Bierens Legal Traineeship is a unique international oriented program/traineeship for ambitious law school graduates. For a period of 5 months, you (together with other trainees) will be working at our international headquarters in Amsterdam, where you will build your own network and legal practice, focusing on international law and the law in
your country of origin.
What does the traineeship entail?
What makes the traineeship unique is the combination of in-house commercial and business training which is provided on top of your legal training at Bierens. The business training entails all facets of running and setting up a business, from business development to online marketing. During and after the training sessions, we will help you in building your own legal business practice within the international Bierens umbrella.
When does the traineeship start and what is the goal?
Every year Bierens recruits several new legal trainees. There are two big periods for the internship, from September to January (5 months) and from February to June (5 months). All trainees will be working together and have both individual and group objectives. At our office in Amsterdam, Bierens employs international attorneys of 20+ different European countries which will create the opportunity for you to gain international legal knowledge. Furthermore, Bierens employs several professionals who will train and coach you to develop commercial and business skills.
Your main goal in this traineeship program is to broaden and hone your legal skills combined with developing your entrepreneurial talent and become part of an internationally operating organisation of lawyers throughout Europe.
I think I might actually apply. Could you try to convince me one last time?
The list of benefits is endless, but just to make you more enthusiastic then you hopefully already are: with this traineeship, you can optimize and utilise your legal skills and entrepreneurial mindset, meet and collaborate with a whole lot of new international people from all over Europe, and be part of the inspirational work environment, but most importantly, kickstart your career in the heart of the Netherlands!
