We maintain close relationships with our clients and understand the challenges they face in their industries. As a unified team, we provide them with the professional support they need.
We thus create a working environment in which you can develop personally and professionally. We support you on your career path and show you perspectives.
Take on responsibility from the very beginning and work close to the client. Our open-door policy allows you to interact closely with all employees at all levels of the firm.
Our aim is to establish a long-term relationship in which we accompany you on your career path from associate to counsel and all the way to a possible partnership. You are not aiming for partnership? Then follow our alternative career path as senior counsel and remain part of the Bird & Bird family.
The Bird & Bird Academy offers you a wide range of tailor-made training programmes for your personal and professional development.
International programmes such as "Twinning", the "Women's Development Programme" and the "Future Leaders Programme" develop your career-oriented skills and promote cross-border networking among colleagues.
We accompany you in every stage of your life. Various part-time offers enable you to combine your professional and private life according to your needs.
To relieve you in your everyday life, we work together with a family service that advises you on all aspects of family, care and nursing. Short-term childcare can also be organised through our cooperation partner.
We attach great importance to excellent local, national and international networking among our staff.
In addition to practice group events, we regularly organise after-work drinks and an annual company outing at local level. Special highlights include our Germany-wide Christmas party and the international football tournament, which takes place at a different B&B location every year. Teams from different countries compete against each other and players and fans weld the law firm family closer together. Sport connects!
Even after you have left, we would like to stay in touch with you.
Through our alumni network, you have the opportunity to stay in touch with alumni. You can also expect many benefits, such as training courses and invitations to our alumni parties. Find out more on our Alumni page.
In my view, Bird & Bird meets all the requirements for an attractive professional life: The interaction between colleagues (at all hierarchical levels) is very cordial, I appreciate the open-door policy and the client work is varied.

Our inclusive culture, coupled with a diverse workforce, makes us innovative and dynamic. The ability to make connections and arrive at inspiring solutions is not to be underestimated. That is why we remain curious, create collaborative structures and work in international teams. We give our clients access to a whole world of expertise, as we give each of our employees their own voice. We encourage our Birds to be themselves and to develop themselves at all stages of their careers.
This includes using our offices responsibly, minimising waste and recycling wherever possible.
Our lawyers regularly invest time to help individuals and organisations by making their legal expertise, skills and resources available to them.
As a law firm with a strong brand, we take responsibility and make a difference. We work side by side with our clients to support initiatives that promote the well being of our society. Our employees volunteer, support fundraising activities and work with charities around the world.
