If you want to advance your law career by working on the most interesting and high-profile cases and you’re looking for a respectful, nurturing and supportive environment, we think there’s no better place than Lenz & Staehelin. Our partners and associates, many of whom started as trainee lawyers with us, strongly agree.

But we encourage and facilitate knowledge sharing and learning opportunities between teams and offices – so you have the chance to broaden your professional horizons. 

We’ll help prepare you for a successful bar exam with specific learning sessions. And during your time with us you’ll develop other crucial skills that you’ll need, including solution finding, time management and the ability to perform under pressure.

In return for your talent and commitment you’ll receive a market-leading salary. As well as bar exam preparation sessions, and ongoing opportunities for training and development, from seminars to conferences. So your skills grow in line with your experience, and you have the chance to shine.

If you bring talent and enthusiasm to the table as a trainee lawyer, we’ll nurture you to grow within our company. Many of our partners and associates were trainee lawyers with us whom we’ve promoted and developed. They've then chosen to stay with Lenz & Staehelin because they’ve found we’re the perfect fit.
