Expertise

Noerr LLP is a leading European commercial law firm with 500 professionals in Germany, Europe and the USA. Founded in Munich in 1950, we have grown into what we are today – 1,100 staff members in 16 locations – through our own entrepreneurial success.

Noerr gives advice in all areas of commercial law. Our practice groups are efficiently networked, and this guarantees innovative legal advice with effective, value-creating solutions. Moreover, our "focused full service" profile is a mark of our commitment to flat hierarchies and to a high measure of self-determination among our specialist fields, partners and teams. For young lawyers, this independence provides an ideal platform for specialisation.

Our client base is similarly diverse, ranging from listed and multinational groups to large and medium-sized family firms, financial institutions and international investors. Our lawyers thus experience the most varied scenarios for handling consultancy projects entrepreneurially.

Here are all our fields of law, practice groups and industry solutions at a glance.

We guarantee top-level international legal advice with our own offices in 11 jurisdictions and a network of top ranked “best friends” law firms all over the world. In Central and Eastern Europe, we are one of the top law firms with more than 100 professionals. Noerr is the exclusive member firm in Germany for Lex Mundi, the leading network of independent law firms with in-depth experience in 100+ countries worldwide.

Career

Noerr offers you excellent career opportunities, both internally and externally. Since we are an independent practice, we can offer outstanding lawyers realistic prospects of rising to partner status. In this process, we apply transparent, consistently clear criteria, which both underlie your regular feedback conversations with your partner and form the foundation of your staff development plan. Our very broad range of expertise expressly encourages specialisation in new fields of law or markets and thus enables you at an early stage to develop and test your entrepreneurial skills. Your prospects are extremely good: Noerr is constantly continuing to grow, and this means we also have an increasing requirement for top advisors in partnership positions.

Your career path at Noerr could look like this:

However, Noerr also offers ideal conditions for a career beyond our firm. You will receive excellent training through exciting case work, feedback-oriented guidance and modular further training. Contact with clients at an early stage, work in teams operating across specialist fields and even the opportunity, from your third year, to get a taste of life with another law firm or a client in an English-speaking country through a secondment will be perfect preparation for whatever new direction your career may take in the future.
