Working at Rittershaus

At RITTERSHAUS, we unite the specialised challenges faced by large competitors with the culture of a medium-sized law firm and the freshness of a start-up. We continue to grow with our successes and are always happy to add new faces to our team. Always welcome are qualified colleagues who, despite all differences, share the values we consider important: an unconditional desire to always achieve the best possible outcome for our clients, team spirit, mutual respect and openness for other people. Our young colleagues have the opportunity to take responsibility for individual clients and make partner.

Opportunities for joining our team

Lawyer

We are always interested in colleagues with above-average qualifications and excellent interpersonal skills who have either just graduated or are about to graduate. The same applies to experienced colleagues who would prefer to work in a specialised team that is still of a manageable size. Lawyers have the opportunity to work both as part of a team and directly with clients at attractive terms of employment.

Legal clerkship

Our law firm has dedicated itself to education and training. This is why we always welcome competent and ambitious young lawyers who would like to spend a part of their legal clerkship at our offices. Our training ground for young lawyers offers an interesting alternative. Its reputation is legendary and gives trainees the opportunity to work for us as employees until they have passed the Second State Examination, allowing them to learn the ins and outs of legal practice right in the thick of things. In both cases, a permanent position on the RITTERSHAUS team is possible.

Summer Internship

During the break between the summer and winter semesters, all students who are interested in company law, employment law, intellectual property law as well as public law have the opportunity to complete a four-week summer internship at our offices. Applications for any given year must be submitted by 15 May at the latest.

The 2020 summer internship will take place from 3rd to 28 August.

Contact: Martin.Buermann(at)rittershaus.net

Administrative office

We believe that working for our law firm can be both a demanding and a fulfilling experience in all areas and in all fields. Legal secretaries and administrative assistants are responsible for supporting our lawyers as part of a team with other motivated colleagues. Applications are always welcome.
