At Niederer Kraft Frey, we believe in entrepreneurship and autonomy. Our business model gives us professional independence. Each partner decides the scope and area of their practice with clients’ needs always in mind. We believe this freedom to be a prerequisite to doing enjoyable and extraordinary work. An essential condition of this broad freedom is that NKF lawyers always take on fully the responsibility of being a committed colleague, teamplayer and at the service of our clients.
We encourage our associates to be in direct contact with clients quickly, to take over responsibility from the outset and independently to look after clients so that you acquire the skills that you need as a lawyer in a dynamic market.
Our teams are not strictly organised by practice area, but are a flexible framework that gives each employee a “home” while giving you space to expand your horizons in other teams so that you can find and develop your own specialist area. We believe that to provide excellent comprehensive advice, every lawyer, no matter how specialised, should remain to some extent a generalist. We look for specialists who have deep expertise in their niche areas and a broad understanding of the law generally and of our clients’ business environment. The breadth and depth of our collective expertise is our unique offering.
We are looking for entrepreneurial lawyers with dedication, passion and initiative who are ready to seize opportunity. If you have a great willingness to keep learning and to perform, if you are interested in demanding legal work and want to develop your own career in a committed environment, NKF is the right place for you. We are always interested in speaking to qualified lawyers with an outstanding academic background and excellent English language skills.
