Our work

Where strength meets depth

At Linklaters in Amsterdam, we’re striving to make a big impact in the world of commercial law. If you share our ambition, we can give you the perfect opportunity to stand out. Lawyers here regularly lead and contribute to innovative, exciting and high-profile deals.

Our Amsterdam office offers you a truly international experience. As well as leading deals independently, we often work with other Linklaters offices on multi-jurisdictional transactions. At all times, we can draw on the firm’s impressive global resources.

No matter how senior or junior you are when you join us, you can make an impact here. That’s because we are a relatively new office. We are building our team. So everybody is open to hearing new ideas. And those ideas can be acted on quickly.

Of course, your network of colleagues will extend far beyond the walls of our Amsterdam office. You’ll be connected to the worldwide Linklaters team. With over 5,000 people in 29 cities around the globe, there is an incredible breadth of expertise for you to access. The power of our shared know-how means that we frequently influence the global landscape of commercial law.

Bigger deals. More complex transactions. New investment vehicles. Emerging markets. Unprecedented projects. The horizons are constantly expanding - for our business, for our clients, and for your career.

Look behind the most innovative deals in the world, and there’s a good chance you’ll find Linklaters. That’s because our people are chosen for more than just their technical ability. We value drive. We love passion. We’re inspired by entrepreneurial spirit. And we welcome the collaborative approach that makes you a team player by instinct, not by instruction. 

Amsterdam is vibrant, cultured and diverse. Just like our people. When work is done, we find time to enjoy ourselves in this unique and multi-dimensional city. From regular after-work drinks, to charity events, the social life embraces everyone at every level, from partner to intern.

If you haven’t worked in a large global firm before, you’ll be amazed by the sheer depth of our resources. And if you have, you’ll still relish what we offer. Of course, the firm’s global network has played a big part in the success of our Amsterdam office. But we stand on our own feet, with major clients, significant projects and exciting plans.

Across every area of our practice, the future here is full of potential. Let’s unlock that potential together.
