Your search has come to an end: We’re happy to be the jewel in the crown of your CV.
Looking for the ultimate springboard for your career? You must have an excellent search strategy, since you’ve ended up in the right place. We’re Bär & Karrer. Allow us to introduce ourselves.
Next step on the career ladder: lawyer. In 14 months we’ll get you ready for the bar exam (Duration varies from canton to canton). An experienced partner will guide and develop you during this time. After determining an area of specialisation together, you will be entrusted with increasingly complex tasks while benefiting from senior team members’ advice and our on-the-job training offers – a recipe for gaining expertise in your chosen field.
As a Junior Associate, you will also benefit from our international reach, concentration of expertise and our excellent reputation. You’ll be able to gain knowledge and build up your professional network. There is a high-pressure, performance-oriented environment at Bär & Karrer, but this is balanced out by a lively atmosphere, refreshing team spirit and casual dress code. You’ll have many opportunities to get to know your colleagues better over an after-work beer — and can even work off the excess calories at our on-site gym.
We’re the right employer for you if you’re eager to prove yourself with honest ambition instead of sharp elbows, if you’re up for fast-paced learning in a big international law firm, and if you don’t leave your sense of humour at the door.
«Our close-knit team of three lawyers focuses on sports law. Our partner is extremely distinguished in this field, and I’ve been able to work on sensational cases that you later read about in the newspaper. This is something truly exceptional.» Matteo Suckow, Junior Associate
«I quickly found not just colleagues, but friends. We sometimes meet up after work or at the weekend.» Michael Neumann, Junior Associate
