They say law firms are stiff. Come see for yourself.

We’ll give you a front-row seat into a field full of opportunities and challenges, and ground to grow as a professional. If you provide us with enthusiasm and curiosity, we’ll provide you with opportunities to dive into a culture full of unique people and different ways of doing law to find what really inspires you.

Every year, we give some of the brightest law students a chance to work with some of the top practitioners in Finland. Thanks to our hands-on approach and a strong community feel, many of our lawyers started as Krogerus trainees and never left.

We are always on the lookout for aspiring young professionals who are eager to learn. Read about our trainee programmes below to find out what role suits you best, and fill out an application to take your next career step.

Jenni Teurokoski
Senior Associate

“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.

Samuli Torpisto
Senior Associate

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

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.
