Sofie van Gorkum

Executive Search Associate

Sofie completed her Private Law degree with great pleasure. During her studies she had several student jobs at different law firms and at the district court, which enabled her to get to know the legal market well. Her interest in the legal world, which was bigger than her interest in legal content, brought her to our organization as Executive Search Associate.

“I worked with great pleasure at different law firms and at the district court. Although I enjoyed it, I was always more interested in the human aspect of lawsuits than in the content, which led me to look for jobs where I would have more contact with people. Having found this opportunity at Legal People and without having to leave the legal world entirely, I never go to work reluctantly!”
