Associates work on projects and in teams to provide legal advice to clients of the legal department. You train and lead graduates working towards their professional exams and interns.
Senior Associates assume more responsibility for clients. You will be assigned some client-specific administrative and organizational tasks and will participate in our CoC (center of competence) working groups. You will establish your first personal contact to clients. Moreover, you will mentor associates during project work and train and lead graduates working towards their professional exams and interns.
Counsels have both disciplinary and line authority over the employees assigned to them and are responsible for their development. You cater to clients comprehensively and at your own initiative. You play an active role in winning new clients and build up your own business unit with the goal of establishing a reputation on the market.
With a high degree of personal commitment and outstanding skill set, partners develop their own client base and constantly win new clients. They groom an internal and external network and build it up in a targeted fashion. Partners bear leadership responsibility for at least three employees, who they target for development. They can confidently identify market trends, business opportunities and interdisciplinary tasks.
We keep a sense of balance along our career paths: we want to keep our flat hierarchies yet also acknowledge the professional and personal development of our employees.
