From attorney-at-law to senior attorney, associate partner, junior partner and owner. Plesner offers many career opportunities if you want to work as an attorney-at-law. The most important factor is that you are able to provide client-focused, value-creating advice of the highest professional standard.

Training and areas of expertise.

As an attorney-at-law, you will participate in our award-winning leadership programme which will enhance your skills as a professional leader and a trusted advisor in a modern law firm. The training programme will prepare you for a career at the top of the Danish corporate sector, and you will be given tools which will benefit you as a leader and in relation to your clients.

You will also be offered to participate in courses and supplementary training on a regular basis. In that way, you will be able to keep updated in your areas of expertise, and you may expand your legal horizon by getting seconded to other law firms in Denmark or abroad or by taking a leave of absence for supplementary training.

Terms of employment 

We offer flexible and attractive terms of salary and employment in a working environment characterised by drive, humour and professionalism. We make room for each and every talent, and particularly the development of your potential is essential to your work enjoyment and Plesner's success. Our terms of salary and employment are outlined below, and we will, of course, tell you much more at your job interview.

An attractive salary
We offer an attractive basic salary and a bonus scheme to all our lawyers. As an attorney, you will receive a fixed salary, and when you become a third-year attorney, you will be invited to an individual salary review discussion.

A good pension plan
We have concluded a pension agreement with Danica Pension under which Plesner will make a monthly pension contribution to your pension plan depending on your length of employment. You will contribute 4% yourself, but you may decide to contribute more.

A safe health insurance policy
You will be covered by a health insurance policy taken out with Danica Sundhedsforsikring which will help you if you need treatment in connection with sickness. You will also be entitled to buy insurance cover for your closest relatives and your children.

Our holiday scheme complies with current Danish legislation, and, in addition, all of our employees are entitled to take the day off on 24 December and 31 December. Please also note that you will be entitled to benefit from our discount agreements concerning travel insurance and hotels in Denmark.

Maternity/paternity/co-parent leave
We offer the same pay conditions for mothers, fathers and co-parents, regardless of length of service. Mothers may start maternity leave four weeks before the expected birth and will receive full pay for up to 24 weeks after the birth. Fathers and co-parents are also entitled to 24 weeks of leave at full pay. After expiry of the leave, you may work reduced hours at full pay for up to three months within the first six months.  

Many other employee benefits
You will benefit from our staff canteen which serves delicious organic breakfast, lunch and fruit every day as well as sandwiches or dinner. We also offer a gross salary scheme under which you may buy DSB travel cards (DSB Erhvervskort). We also offer physiotherapy, dry cleaning, discount schemes, an art society and a wine club, and you will make a monthly contribution of DKK 20 to a kitty paying for presents on the occasion of special birthdays, anniversaries and childbirths.
