If you want to work for a company that provides its team of carefully selected lawyers a high degree of independence, while offering constant exchange & interaction and an open doors policy with an experienced legal team and the rare opportunity to combine meaningful legal work with work-life balance and local and temporal flexibility, and a working culture that only counts the results, then this is the position for you.
