Graduates | Pestalozzi Attorneys at Law

Ready to kick-start your legal career? A term as Junior Associate comes with guidance, support and challenges that will set you on course to fulfil your potential.

The future success of our firm depends on our ability to attract highly qualified lawyers, driven by purpose and passion for their field. As a Junior Associate at Pestalozzi, you get between twelve (in Zurich) to eighteen months (in Geneva) of intensive training that provides you with valuable insights into our various practice groups and locations – and prepares you for the bar exam.

As an integrated member of our team, you will learn to negotiate, draft briefs, and apply your knowledge as you prepare for the bar exam. With real client contact from day one, you will learn to communicate purposefully and build solid working relationships. Our experienced and highly qualified professionals support and empower you to participate in court hearings and develop your language skills.

As a Junior Associate, you are a valued member of the Pestalozzi team. We pick candidates based not only on academic performance, but personality, mindset and potential. Each Junior Associate is paired with two experienced mentors to help you settle in and make the most of your time with us. We believe that while training is your responsibility, it is also ours. Our unique pool system with a focus on corporate/commercial or litigation/arbitration enables you to experience different legal projects, challenges and clients. If you are interested in a particular area of law, we will help you find ways to explore that field and seize opportunities that come your way.
