We do not work in large, fixed teams, but rather in small units. At our firm, you are clearly assigned to one or two partners, but are always working for other partners as well. This gives you the opportunity to gain a broad range of experience and knowledge before you decide to specialize in a certain field of law. In addition, we do not want to train “file clerks” to clarify the detailed legal questions in the background. Our associates come into contact with clients as soon as possible. That helps us – and above all you – to progress.
- Stage 1: Trainees or associates
Graduates join the firm as trainees or associates.
- 2nd stage: Senior Associate
- 3rd stage: Partner or Counsel
Appointment as partner is foreseen after six to eight years.
From the sixth year onwards (alternatively or transitionally), appointment as counsel may follow.
The working atmosphere at SKW Schwarz is consistently rated positively by our lawyers. We are pleased about that. But we are really proud that independent third parties such as azur or trendence also distinguish us as a top employer year after year.
We are an entrepreneurial law firm and are looking for personalities at all levels with a thirst for action, high standards for themselves, initiative and pleasure in providing legal advice and taking on responsibility.
We work together in small teams in which younger associates also take on important tasks. You will have direct client contact right from the start and will not just be a legal back office,
We attach great importance to your training, in particular to the promotion of your professional and entrepreneurial skills in regular internal and external training courses as well as in the personal accompaniment of your career path by experienced mentors and "buddies",
You will be an externally visible part of marketing and acquisition from the very beginning, with real opportunities for advancement in which we will actively support you,
At SKW Schwarz, there are regular joint lunches and team-building events, both on-site and off-site.
Interdisciplinary cooperation on mandates is part of our daily routine, not only in our task forces for cutting-edge innovation topics such as Industry 4.0, augmented reality, esports, corporate venture capital and influencer marketing.
