Legal Counsel

The Jan De Nul Group Legal Department advises the various divisions within Jan De Nul Group. This results in very diverse legal advice for our dredging, civil, environmental and our offshore activities. You work as a generalist for all divisions and you go into particulars where necessary.

We are looking for a corporate lawyer to support our civil, dredging and offshore departments. You contribute, amongst other things, to the realization of complex civil construction works, PPS projects and to the development of dredging and offshore projects worldwide.

As a corporate lawyer at Jan De Nul Group, you actively participate in the identification and efficient management of contractual and legal risks related to projects. You work closely with your peers and with the technical, operational and financial department. You will be involved in the contract negotiations. In your function, you do not only take care of legal interests, but you also take into account the technical and commercial aspects.

Your main responsibilities are:

  • Analyzing tender documents (both public and private) and identifying contractual risks.
  • Reviewing and drafting of contracts and active participation in contract discussions.
  • In a wide range of matters, such as contracting law, commercial law and maritime law and public procurement.
  • Dealing with disputes (amicable, court and arbitration) in collaboration with the project team and external lawyers.
