You should be able to express yourself clearly and concisely in English (both written and orally). Fluency in other languages would be an advantage. The successful candidates will be good team-players who can also work independently when required. On the job training and mentoring is provided to all our young lawyers. In addition to client projects, our lawyers are expected to actively participate in marketing and business development initiatives. Compensation will be commensurate with the successful candidates’ experience.
