“My career path as such began the day I started at Krogerus.”

My career path as such started on the day I started at Krogerus as an associate trainee. From my first day onwards, I have met the most welcoming and warm co-workers, many of whom have become good friends of mine, who are all highly intelligent and motivated, and who will always exceed themselves when thinking about our clients and their needs.

“Lateral recruitments are always a two-way street.”

I did not follow Krogerus’ traditional trainee path or come in through a public job advertisement. Lateral recruitments like mine are always a two-way street: neither party benefits if the fit is not ideal. If I could give a piece of advice to an aspiring lawyer, I would tell them to focus on communication. Try to write and speak as clearly and concisely as possible, because the law is complex enough in itself.

“You can learn an incredible amount just by listening to your senior colleagues and clients.”

The most important learnings from my traineeship were the importance of teamwork, finding the things that you are the most interested in and learning your own way of working. The three best things about my traineeship were the people (kind of a cliché, but you’d be surprised), the constant feedback I received during my traineeship (pro tip: write some of it down) and the fact that I was given a true opportunity to show my talent right from the start.
