Compensation and Benefits

The compensation offered to our lawyers is highly competitive in Germany. 

The principles governing compensation of our partners are also applied to our associates. Thus, compensation is in general based only on the seniority of the associate concerned and is not linked to the achievement of specific performance criteria. In particular, we do not have any targets relating to hours or other measurements of associates’ achievements or commitment. We expect, however, each lawyer within the firm to give his or her best and to strive for excellence. 

Associates also receive a number of customary benefits.
