We are stepping up our corporate and M&A department. You are highly qualified and have a keen business acumen? You enjoy challenging work and are interested in innovations? You love being involved in a dynamic team but you would also like to have a life outside the office? That’s how we feel as well!

Who we are

We know global players from years of experience in all their glory. Our approach is quite different: Top-notch work but in small, dynamic and highly specialised teams.

More …

We mainly advise our domestic as well as foreign clients on the following core areas: Real estate, infrastructure, renewable energies, new social models and traditional industries. The basis of our field of activity is an in-depth understanding of the market and the products of our clients, for state regulations of those areas and for the transaction business. The key to our success is an intelligent and efficient mix of highly diverse legal materials to achieve an excellent service.

Corporate law and M&A constitute the bracket which joins together those regulations.


What you can expect

In our specialised boutique law firm you will become a part of a young, dynamic and motivated team that works together on high-end mandates.

Our ultimate goal is the utmost satisfaction of our clients. We are convinced that there are many different ways of achieving this goal. We support you in finding your own way, combining family, friends and passions with the challenges of a demanding profession – inter alia by providing modern worktime systems including part-time.

Professional development is the basis for good quality. In contrast to large law firms, at Chatham’s you will experience very close ties to our partners and a high degree of autonomy and independence already at a very early stage: From what we have experienced this is excellent on the job training which supports you in your development in the best possible way.

Work products you will get involved in - and which you will at times quickly produce independently - are among others:

  • Transaction documents such as term sheets, acquisition and transfer agreements on shares, shareholding and financing agreements;
  • Joint venture agreements including foundation documents, articles of association, corporate governance regulations;
  • Documents with regard to capital measures such as capital increases, hybrid financing and debt capital;
  • Restructuring documents e.g. for the transformation of the legal form, spin-offs, mergers;
  • Corporate housekeeping documents such as resolutions required for changes to the articles of incorporation, shareholder meetings and/or agreements;
  • Intercompany contracts such as profit transfer agreements or cash pool contracts or service provider contracts.

Already at an early stage you will have the opportunity to help shape our firm's processes at your own responsibility and will have room for personal and professional development. If you are suitably qualified and determined, we encourage you to assume a role as a partner in a few years' time. Working at Chatham’s is compatible with other life concepts - there is no “up-or-out” with us.

Moreover, you will have the opportunity to profit from our excellent training and further education (e.g. Chatham Academy closely cooperates with Bucerius Executive Education).

As we have high quality standards for our associates, we remunerate you accordingly.


Who we are looking for

We are looking for highly qualified and motivated newcomers as well as lawyers with up to 3 years of professional experience with an interest in advising on projects in the field of corporate law · M&A. A very good knowledge of English is indispensable for our work. Appropriate knowledge in corporate law as well as in transaction consulting would be an advantage but it is not a mandatory requirement because we offer you a solid and very praxis-orientated education.
