Skills development

During your first years as an associate, you will learn the work of a commercial lawyer. At Gernandt & Danielsson, you will have a lot to do from day one. You will be directly allocated to a team consisting of partners and other more experienced lawyers. This will enable you to learn more quickly at our firm than at many others, and you will gradually grow into your role as a lawyer and adviser.

You will follow a training plan, which provides multifaceted skills development, including commercial law and legal ethics, as well as project management, negotiation techniques and business accounts. We regularly use Sweden's most prominent lecturers for training in e.g. company law, contract law and procedural law. All new associates are also offered expert training in commercial legal English. One element in your training plan may be a secondment at a foreign law firm or a client.

As part of the firm's mentoring programme, new associates are assigned two mentors – a partner and a senior associate. Your development will be monitored regularly by your mentors and by means of annual performance reviews.
