Career

 

The ability of a law firm to stand out in today's world of advocacy depends particularly on having people who work together as a team, from students to partners. At BBH, we place great emphasis on personal growth and look for talented lawyers for whom a law practice is not just a job, but a personal driving ambition. The long-standing cooperation we enjoy with most of our associates and their professional advances demonstrate that rather than short-term cooperation, our goal is to create long-term relationships within which our lawyers have the opportunity and support they need to attain the highest positions.

"I joined BBH as a 3rd year student to make some extra money and gain practical experience in the field. While my classmates were office assistants or doing administrative work, I wanted from the start to be involved in major legal projects as a full-fledged team member. As a result, at BBH I have been able to progress through more and more responsible ranks in the company and our cooperation has been so successful so I have managed to become Partner."

"I had worked as a legal trainee in another law office before, so, when I was looking for a legal position after returning from my LL.M. program in the Netherlands, I focused mainly on the dynamics of the prospective law offices and how I saw my future involvement with them. The compensation package was generous, of course, but BBH's offer was the most interesting because their client list and case work was the most significant in the CEE region. I have been given the opportunity to organize my work and gradually manage entire projects on my own. There were several characteristics that intrigued me the most about the function of this law office; apart from the independence of my work, I found it to be an especially friendly team that generated a relaxed atmosphere among my talented and dedicated colleagues, which is not always the case in organizations under the pressure of deadlines and demanding client assignments. In 2014, I was very pleased to be made Partner."

From those who want to work with BBH, we expect your determination to become a member of a top team of lawyers and to practice high-level advocacy; it is impossible to succeed in the current market of international disputes and transactions without it. A strong knowledge of the English language is very important, and a capability in a second foreign language (NJ, FJ, RJ) is preferred. We prefer law school graduates who have had previous, at least internship, practice in advocacy, but we are happy to meet with all candidates. The key factor is that you approach advocacy as an unfolding journey in life that you pursue as far as possible (with reasonable consideration :-)

"I came to BBH as a student interested in financial law and, in my time and experience here I have been able to develop in other legal areas, such as acquisitions, corporate restructuring and dispute law. I work in these areas to this day and I have a widely varied workload. After my student practice and even as a legal trainee, with BBH’s careful and involved guidance, I found myself challenged to assume leadership roles in significant projects. BBH has given me the opportunity to manage progressively greater projects myself and I have been promoted quite gratifyingly and relatively quickly."
