Working at DLA Piper

Eero Puranen

"I had the privilege to work for one week in our Oslo office with my Norwegian and Swedish colleagues as a part of our recently launched Nordic secondment program. As working in the field of law tends more or less to tie you to a certain jurisdiction, DLA Piper provides a unique opportunity to work with interesting and challenging assignments in a truly international environment. Also, it is heaps of fun."

Sanni Nevala

"The best part of my traineeship has been the talented group of lawyers I have had the privilege to work with. I have been trusted with wide variety of challenging tasks from different areas of business law and I have learned so much from the inspiring experts of DLA Piper. This traineeship has been a unique and valuable opportunity to deepen my knowledge about international business law."
