Legal Trainee or Research Assistant

Working as a legal trainee or research assistant in one of our teams provides the opportunity to see a lawyer’s work in one of the leading independent German commercial law firms firsthand and gain experience in dealing with clients. Also, as it did with many of our current lawyers, this experience could help you determine whether the firm is a great place for you to work long-term. 

As a legal trainee or research assistant, you will be quickly integrated into ongoing cases and receive constant training from our lawyers. Within the scope of regular tutorials and further training measures, you can also reinforce your knowledge and learn about practice-relevant topics from other fields of law. Our Legal English course will even improve your language skills.

We won the Azur Award 2012 for our training programme for legal trainees and law students. 

After your time with us you will have acquainted yourself with the profession of a commercial lawyer and will hopefully be as enthusiastic about it as we are. 

We expect excellent exam results, a good grasp of the English language, the ability to work well in a team, commitment and open-mindedness.
