Our career stepping stones

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.

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 As­so­ciate
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.
