If you have international aspirations, you have come to the right place. At Gorrissen Federspiel, we send many of our people out into the world every year to improve their skills and return home with new knowledge.
A stay abroad broadens your horizons and gives you new perspectives. Outlook and international experience are an important part of our work, especially as companies, securities and assets are traded across borders and regulation becomes increasingly international. With international experience behind them, our lawyers can offer exceptional quality advice and service to the firm’s international clients.
Every year, many of our people go abroad to study or on secondment to a law firm or company. Many of our law students also take a semester abroad as part of their studies. Law students working at Gorrissen Federspiel may apply for a travel grant to support their studies abroad.
Our strong international relationships are a result of the close and long-standing cooperation with a number of the world’s leading law firms, banks, audit firms and insurance companies. We can therefore guarantee our clients professional advice at short notice where this is needed.
We always encourage our employees to seize the opportunity to go abroad and further their education. Many of our students choose to go on exchange during their studies. Therefore, we offer leave of absence and the opportunity to apply for a travel grant to anyone planning to study abroad. After the exchange, the majority return (to their work) with renewed energy and valuable experiences that are beneficial for their further education and work at Gorrissen Federspiel.
It’s not only through studying that you can fulfill your dreams of going abroad. We have good experience with seconding our employees abroad. A secondment can involve staying with an international client, where you become part of their team for a specific period. You can also be seconded to a law firm abroad.
In addition to the opportunity of being seconded and working abroad, we gladly offer our lawyers the chance to participate in further educational programs overseas. Many choose to embark on these journeys to enhance their knowledge, returning home with an LL.M. or an equivalent advanced qualification. Apart from the invaluable experience of living and studying in another country, lawyers also bring back fresh legal insights that can be applied to specific work involving international clients and cases.
Ever since Victoria began her law studies, pursuing an LL.M. has been a cherished dream.

Victoria's timing couldn't be better, having already gained practical experience in the legal field for several years. Now, she seeks to immerse herself in the realm of academia once again, approaching theoretical concepts, particularly in the realm of competition law, with a renewed perspective
