The change in the legal profession
Janine Reudt-Demont – The Tages-Anzeiger’s “Focus Next Step” supplement
In the Tages-Anzeiger’s “Focus Next Step” supplement, which appeared on 19 September 2020, Niederer Kraft Frey counsel Janine Reudt-Demont speaks about the changes in her profession and what lawyers should consider when choosing an employer.

Further important aspects seem to be further training opportunities, support for individually initiated projects and the acceptance of functions in professional associations.
