We continuously endeavour to ensure that Plesner remains an attractive workplace for the most talented lawyers in the industry. Whether you are a student, recently qualified or an attorney-at-law, the possibilities are numerous at Plesner. When you have some years of experience as an attorney-at-law, you will be able to become a Manager, a Director, a Senior Counsel or a Partner.
You are ready to become a Manager when you have been an attorney-at-law for at least two years and satisfy Plesner's expectations for a legal adviser with this level of experience.
You will be able to become a Director when you have worked as an attorney-at-law for at least four years, have acquired thorough knowledge and commercial awareness within your area of expertise and contribute to maintaining relationships with the clients you advise. At the same time, you fully satisfy Plesner's expectations to a Manager.
You will be able to become a Senior Counsel when you have at least ten years of experience and have been a successful Manager or Director for a number of years. Expertise gained during your time as a successful Manager or Director at Plesner or while working in the corporate sector or in the public sector.
You will be able to become a Partner when we agree that you are ready to head up one of Plesner's practice areas and, together with the firm's other partners, assume ultimate responsibility for our unique firm, clients and colleagues. The assessment of your eligibility as a Partner will focus on your previous performance and on your potential to take on a significantly larger role over time.
