As an associate, your work with us will be independent and involve direct contact with clients from the get-go. In the first three years of your career, you will initially receive intensive training from a partner and be introduced to the firm’s standards. Thanks to our mentoring programme, you receive regular feedback on your work. In addition, we offer you a wide-ranging training programme to provide you with the best possible support on your career path. What’s more, we help our lawyers specialise and offer participation in corresponding courses.
