Ongoing Training When you come to work with us, we do not expect you to know everything. A university education and professional experience are a good start. But the law is dynamic and lawyers require constant updating and fine tuning of their legal knowledge and skills in order to stay sharp. Therefore, attending seminars and courses is standard practice at our firm. We encourage the internal exchange of knowledge and the dissemination of corporate know-how. In our firm, senior lawyers pass on their legal expertise and experience through seminars, lectures and trainings for the younger lawyers. These target both legal content and legal skills, such as contract drafting, legal reasoning and writing and negotiating skills. External courses and individual training will round off your professional development.

A clear and transparent career path as well as periodical feedback support the development of our lawyers. Most of our partners and junior partners started as associates with schoenherr. The firm is divided into practice groups. As a member of a practice group, you will have the opportunity to specialise in that area under the guidance of an experienced partner. Many young schoenherr lawyers also take advantage of the opportunity for temporary secondment to another office, be it an office within the schoenherr network or a best friend firm in a jurisdiction outside the schoenherr network, such as the UK.
