Wanted: Team player, creative & courageous

We’re proud of our more than 110 years of tradition - and yet we stand in the here and now. There are no rigid hierarchies at Oppenhoff, but team players at eye level - it is important to us that our employees all work well together: business services, secretaries, students, legal interns, associates and partners. For us, the legal practice is not an assembly line, it’s individual teamwork. Together, we develop sophisticated solutions for our clients. Not just subsumption, but business sense and creativity are required.

We are lawyers - our aim is to inspire you with enthusiasm for our job. That’s why you’ll be involved in the work at all levels from an early stage and will also work together with other practice groups. As a newcomer you’ll be a valuable member of our team from day one, having contact with clients and the opportunity to set your own personal focuses. This takes courage, but will allow you to develop your own unique legal personality - we support you in this with our training programs for students, legal interns and associates.

It is important to us that you’re able to enjoy a private life alongside your work. This means: no attendance culture; weekends and vacations are for recreation. The flexibility that our clients demand from us is an approach we share with our employees by offering flexible working models.

Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about us at a personal meeting. We’re keen to meet you.

What our colleagues have to say

Social Aspects

Corporate social responsibility

Every year we take part in the Cologne Volunteer Day and, among other things, have renovated the garden house of a children’s day-care center and accompanied senior citizens to visit the Cologne Zoo and the Chocolate Museum. We also support social projects on a pro bono basis, for example a database for bone marrow donors, an association for the care of children from disadvantaged families and a theatre. Virtually all of our partners are also privately involved in various social associations.


Our values: enthusiasm and passion

Our work is exciting – every single day. Achieving success for our clients through teamwork is immensely rewarding. Enjoying what you do on a long-term basis presupposes a healthy balance between work and leisure time.

Parent-child room

We support you in balancing career and family. Should you find yourself without childcare, you can work in our parent-child room. In addition to the work area, the room is equipped with a small bed that can be converted into a playpen, a changing unit, a shelf for storing toys and a small table with chairs.
