Your job

The VLK Legal department supports each of VLK’s activities. A total of fifteen lawyers work in this department. They visibly contribute to the further development of Van Lanschot Kempen thanks to their proactive working methods and close involvement with the business. 

Due to an increase in the commercial activities of VLK in the area of Equity Capital Markets and Corporate Finance, there is a need to also expand the legal support for these activities. We are therefore looking for a colleague who will work alongside our in-house ECM / CF lawyer.

Your duties will include:

  • Advising on international equity capital market transactions (for example IPOs, rights issues and accelerated bookbuild offerings), where Kempen acts as global coordinator and/or joint bookrunner, and negotiating transaction documentation (underwriting agreements, placement agreement, agreements among managers, legal opinions, etc.).
  • Drawing up and negotiating ECM and M&A advisory mandate letters and confidentiality agreements.
  • Advising on all kinds of issues in the field of market abuse, securities law (including prospectus regulations), financial regulation and contract law.
  • Identifying and anticipating relevant developments concerning legislation and regulations relevant in the context of the international equity capital market transactions.

Your experience

  • You have at least 4 years relevant work experience, either as a lawyer or as an inhouse counsel at a financial institution. You have substantial experience with legal advice in (equity) capital markets or other type of transactions in an international context.
  • You are practical, solution-orientated and commercially-or entated, and you can translate legal content into pragmatic solutions.
  • You have in-depth knowledge of securities laws and contract law.
  • You are fluent in English, both spoken and written.
