What we expect from you

Our clients value us for our proven legal competence, our in-depth industry knowledge, and our solution-based professional work. We will also be applying these requirements to you.

Let’s start with the basics:

  • You should have excellent legal knowledge, which should ideally be proven by means of honors degrees.
  • We are pleased to see a doctorate or comparable additional qualification.
  • Good English skills are mandatory, knowledge of other foreign languages is welcome.

Now we get to the key points:

Because we advise businesses and business people, you should have a special interest in and understanding of economic circumstances – you will then gain experience and industry expertise during your daily work. No specialist knowledge in a certain legal field is required, but of course, we are pleased if you have it. And you should think entrepreneurially – no, you must think entrepreneurially. Please consider this point honestly, because it is something that we are really implementing. So, if you have initiative, motivation, and the will to build something for yourself, then we should definitely get to know each other.
