JOB OPENING FOR JUNIOR LEGAL ADVISOR/MID LEVEL LAWYER
Unlike as in a mega law firm environment, it is the firm’s policy to employ its lawyers on the full scope of legal and commercial aspects without restricting to particular segments or limited practice areas. This enables swift and comprehensive hands-on experiences and superior know-how regarding corporate and investment laws, real estate acquisitions and developments, as well as domestic tax advice and cross-border tax structuring.
The legal team works in a cooperative and collegial working environment without Thai-style hierarchy. Based on sophisticated software solutions and modern information technology systems, all work products and client’s communications are rigidly reviewed to assure consistence with the firm’s legal conceptions and high-end quality.
The law firm’s working language is English. Night shifts and weekend work are not expected. No age restrictions apply and legal career break returners are welcome. Salary and benefits comply with market conditions. However, the candidate should realize that the unique professional experience gained on the job is the highest-value part of the overall remuneration. Start of employment can be immediately or at a later point in time.
Applications to be sent to email@example.com should include a curriculum vitae or resume, accompanied by a cover letter outlining the candidate’s interest in and suitability for the position. All applications and expressions of interest will be treated confidentially, being reviewed only by the Managing Director. Even when the candidate does not meet the expectations, the law firm is keen to keep in contact and evaluate alternative cooperation opportunities now or later.
