Because aiming high is part of who you are.
Excellence expected, shaped, and delivered.
Helping to shape our firm and our success.
Passionate about making the legal profession in Belgium more diverse? So are we. Our office has been engaged in and actively rolled out programmes including the Women in Leadership and Law (WILL) programme, the Legal Diversity & Inclusion Alliance (LDIA) and our [email protected] network.
We’re on a journey to reduce our CO2 emissions wherever possible. Most recently, we’ve been focused on green transportation, installing charging points for electric vehicles and investing in electric bikes for our colleagues to run errands.
In Belgium, every new lawyer must take on pro bono work to become a full-fledged lawyer. You can count on our full support to meet this requirement. From a global perspective, we’re also a pro bono partner for Fedora, the European platform supporting opera and ballet, and which counts Belgian institutions La Monnaie/De Munt and Muziektheater Transparant among its members.
We’re an outward-looking firm. We're interested in the world, current issues, and emerging trends and we work with great clients doing great things. Things that have a real impact on the way the world does business, and how we all live. So, it's not surprising that we also want to have a positive influence by supporting our local communities.
We work alongside our clients to champion initiatives that make an impact on the community around us. And our people dedicate time through volunteering and fundraising, and partner with charities across the world to truly amplify our impact.
I have been working Bird & Bird since 2016 and have felt part of the team from day one. It doesn’t matter what your job is, there is equal respect throughout the firm. The many social events definitely contribute to that.
Valerie Wieman Management Assistant
My first year at Bird & Bird Brussels was already very exciting. From the outset, I was involved in very challenging matters, for which I received the trust and support of the entire team. I also really like that Bird & Bird has a no-nonsense mentality, where every member of the team is very accessible, whatever their seniority might be. This also allows us to organise fun get-togethers with the team at the end of the work day.
Camille Vanpeteghem Associate
Working at Bird & Bird pushes me to go the extra mile. Here I can make the most of my legal and personal skills as well as continuing to learn every day. The high level cases we are confronted with, together with the litigation work before the European Courts, makes the experience incredibly rewarding. It is the challenging component of my job that makes it so fulfilling.
