Need proof?

As a contrast paralegal I am part of the legal team, which entails that I work closely with the lawyers of the team. As a full member of this team, I have the opportunity to perform a wide range of interesting tasks such as assistance in the reviewing and drafting of agreements, memo’s, letters, publications, etc., managing the knowledge database and doing preparatory, as well as, extensive research. When I started at contrast, another paralegal was assigned to me as buddy who coached me and shared her experience with me. Ultimately the more experience I gained, the more challenging opportunities and responsibilities I get.

Breth Hermans – Paralegal corporate & business law

Four years ago, I was the first paralegal to join contrast. Today, I am part of a team consisting of three paralegals and we will soon welcome a fourth team member. As a contrast paralegal, I provide substantive legal support to our contrast teams by performing a wide range of tasks, such as legal research and drafting and reviewing legal documents. In addition, I chair the weekly and monthly meetings of the Competition & EU law team. Finally, I regularly coordinate and provide support in several publication projects. I even received the opportunity to co-author (in my own name) a legal publication on private damages!
