Your career path at SZA Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz.
You will be part of a team and directly involved in client work from day one. In daily collaboration, you learn “on the job” and are individually supported by our Schilling Academy. Your colleagues will accompany you closely during the first few months, enabling you to quickly find your way into the working practice of a business law firm.
Inclusion on the letterhead
At the end of the second professional year, the partnership decides on your inclusion on the letterhead – the first “promotion”: You take on individual important tasks in the team and already handle individual work steps as well as smaller proceedings and projects largely on your own. You also act as contact for SZA Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz externally.
As a general rule, after the fourth professional year the partnership decides on your appointment as a Senior Associate: You have developed expertise in your field and are increasingly taking on your first managerial responsibilities.
From the seventh year of your professional career, you can become a Principal Associate. You will be sought out by your colleagues as a counsellor, lead them as a team and also train them in the process. You will be among our best-performing associates.
Partner / Non-Equity Partner / Counsel
As a general rule, the partners decide on your admission to the partnership after the eighth professional year. We are proud to be able to regularly appoint partners from our own ranks. As a partner of SZA Schilling, Zutt & Anschütz you bear comprehensive entrepreneurial responsibility.
Not all of our attorneys aspire to become a partner with the entrepreneurial responsibility that comes with it. In these cases, a non-equity partnership or counsel position may be considered. You have acquired particular legal expertise and are an established specialist in your field. You provide comprehensive and independent advice in your area of expertise. You take on client and team responsibility and have a prominent position both internally and externally.
