Going new ways: your career at COHAUSZ & FLORACK

The world is full of inventors. And what about you? Why not reinvent yourself – and find out more about your career opportunities at COHAUSZ & FLORACK? For example the training as a patent attorney or patent attorney’s clerk. Please also have a look at our vacancies! Perhaps we’re currently looking for someone just like you.

Valuable employees

We particularly owe our success as a law firm to our dedicated team – both our current attorneys and the next generation of attorneys as well as our staff in the secretariats and in general administration. In order to make sure that doesn’t change, we have created an environment where people enjoy working and can provide their best possible performance. We attach great importance to a fair working partnership and to respectful, open communication. This is also reflected beyond everyday working life: at excursions, firm celebrations and other joint activities.

Who we are looking for

Are you curious, creative and motivated to make a difference? Then you’ve already got some of the important traits needed for joining COHAUSZ & FLORACK. To start a legal career, you also require an academic education and should be interested in technical, scientific, legal and economic issues. Furthermore, service-oriented and responsible work ought to be something you enjoy. But a great many tasks are also waiting for you in administration and office work. We are constantly looking for committed personalities to take on training as patent attorney’s clerks: young people who work independently, conscientiously and reliably – and who can express themselves confidently both orally and in writing.

What we offer

Good things take time. That applies to work on inventions just as much as to professional development. In our firm, our staff are given all the opportunities to develop their strengths. In particular, we give our young employees the possibility to benefit from extensive training. Regular feedback sessions are used to reflect on one’s own performance. Anyone who is able to develop in this way in the long run, who feels comfortable in the process and even gets an attractive salary, will stay. At least that’s the case at COHAUSZ & FLORACK. Many of our employees have already been with us for over ten years. A confirmation that we, as an employer, are also doing a good job.

Work and family

In our firm you will find the necessary conditions for just the right arrangement between work and family. In our own day care centre your little ones will be individually taken care of in a small group until the age of three. Furthermore, we offer flexible working hours – making it easier for you to return to your profession after maternity leave.

Training and further education

There are plenty of development opportunities: both externally – such as in vocational school or at facilities like the German patent and trademark office – as well as internally in our law firm. In particular, we train our patent attorney candidates comprehensively regarding all aspects of intellectual property rights. They receive support from an experienced patent attorney and can deepen their knowledge in specific courses and by exchanging experiences with other candidates. That makes learning easier. Our colleagues from other departments, such as administration or the secretariat, also have individual training programmes at their disposal: the ideal tools to meet new professional challenges.
