Hanover, 31.08.2015 | After I had successfully finished my professional training as a legal assistant (Rechtsanwaltsfachangestellte), Herfurth & Partner offered me the opportunity of a practical training in the offices of our partner law firm Kerman & Co. in London for four weeks.
From the beginning on the team always to special care to ensure that I would get an extensive impression of the general work as well as the various departments in the office. Apart from the support in the administrative area I was also able to work in – partly very complex – fields of Real Estate, Litigation and Corporate Law. The regular visits to court with the “outdoor clerk” have furthermore made my working day very varying. Generally, I could find many commonalities to my work at Herfurth & Partner.
From the first day on I felt very welcome at the law firm. The colleagues were very open minded, friendly and always willing to explain things to me thoroughly. Furthermore, the time in London, especially at Kerman & Co., helped me to improve my English language skills.
Overall, the pratical training was a great experience for me professionally but mainly personally. I am very greatful for this possibility.
