At WEBER & CO. every young lawyer has the opportunity to become a partner. The specific partnership prospects depend largely on the legal, entrepreneurial and social skills of the candidates. The partnership decision is adopted through the unanimous consent of all partners in a two-stage system. In the period between the bar exam and the admission to the bar, the decision is made whether or not to offer the associate a position as junior partner.
The acceptance of the associate as a junior partner usually follows the lawyer’s admission to the bar. The definite decision on partnership is taken on the basis of successful legal as well as personal collaboration. Before this decision is taken, junior partners are able to gain international experience by working for firms and clients abroad. Based on the success of the legal and personal cooperation, a decision on the final partnership position is made after about three years.
