Some tips for your application

Your cover letter is very important to us. What particularly interests us is why the position that you are applying for is of interest to you, and of course why you are suitable for that position. If you can also provide proof of this based on several positions from your resume, that would be even better. Your resume should be short and concise and should not exceed two pages. Ideally, your most recent activity should be shown first.

What happens next?

Firstly, we consider all applications very carefully. Then we invite the candidates who seem most suitable to us to an initial interview. During this interview, you will not only meet the partners from the specialist area that you have applied for, but also all partners from our Recruiting Department.

If we are able to win you over – and vice versa –, we will make an appointment for a second interview. Then we have a more in-depth conversation and talk in concrete terms about joining the firm. Sometimes other associates will participate in the meeting as well.

Communication about the application is generally handled by our Recruiting Department.

What process does an interview follow?

An interview for us is a dialogue, not an interrogation! We are trying to get to know you better. In general, we ask you to take us through your resume and explain why you have applied at our firm and why you are interested in the particular position. We want to understand where your strengths are, what motivates you, what is fun for you, and what your objectives are. Of course, the interview is also an opportunity for you to find out more about us, the department, the partners and lawyers with whom you would be working. For that reason, we are very happy to answer your questions. We will then make a quick and simple decision.
