Greenfort im Interview

Interview mit
Martin Asmuß, LL.M. (UCLA)

Das steht auf meiner Visitenkarte:
Rechtsanwalt

Warum haben Sie sich für einen Berufseinstieg bei Greenfort entschieden?
Weil mich Greenfort in meiner Wahlstation jeden Tag durch anspruchsvolle Arbeit an internationalen Mandaten auf höchstem Niveau, einen familiären Kollegenkreis und die richtige Einstellung zum Leben überzeugt hat.

Was ist das Besondere an Greenfort?
Die Arbeitsatmosphäre. In keiner anderen Kanzlei ist das Arbeitsniveau so hoch und das Arbeitsklima gleichzeitig so gut. Es gibt dabei keine Unterschiede zwischen Partnern, Anwälten oder Assistenz. Hier geht es um Menschen. Und das spürt man – jeden Tag.

Wie sieht die tägliche Arbeit im Bereich Gesellschaftsrecht für einen Berufseinsteiger aus?
Oberflächlich betrachtet wie in jeder anderen Kanzlei: E-Mails, Telefonate, Recherchen zu einzelnen Rechtsfragen und Entwürfe von Verträgen, Due Diligence Reports, Memoranda etc. Der Unterschied: Als Anwalt bei Greenfort ist man von der ersten Minute an Anwalt und trägt auch nach außen die Verantwortung. Man ist entsprechend selbständig und flexibel in der Zeiteinteilung, im Rahmen dessen was die Mandanten fordern. Mandantenkontakt vom ersten Tag ist hier keine Floskel (und das kann am Anfang auch mal einschüchternd sein). Die Verantwortung gegenüber Mandanten und der Gegenseite bringt dabei Spannung in jede kleine Tätigkeit.

Wie werden junge Anwälte von Greenfort gefördert?
Durch Verantwortung und Feedback: Durch die vollständige Einbindung in Mandate von der ersten Kontaktaufnahme des Mandanten bis (bspw.) zum Vollzug eines Unternehmenskaufs ist die Lernkurve sehr steil. Und Softskills lassen sich nicht besser trainieren als in Telefonaten und Besprechungen oder Verhandlungen mit Mandanten und der Gegenseite. Feedback gibt es immer und ehrlich. Von Mandanten sowieso, aber auch intern – nicht nur in den halbjährlichen Entwicklungsgesprächen mit den Partnern. Daneben gibt es aber auch Kommunikationstraining mit externen Coaches, monatliche Greenfort-Lunches mit Vorträgen zu bestimmten Themen, Englischunterricht, interne “Lerngruppen” und die Möglichkeit, einen Fachanwaltskurs oder andere Seminare und Fortbildungen zu besuchen.

Martin Asmuß

Welche Qualifikationen bzw. Vorkenntnisse sollte ein Berufseinsteiger im Bereich Gesellschaftsrecht mitbringen?
Eine offene Persönlichkeit, Spaß am Anwaltsberuf, das Interesse an wirtschaftlichen Zusammenhängen, natürlich zwei Staatsexamina und Englischkenntnisse sowie Spaß daran, diese zu nutzen. Natürlich sind ein LL.M., ein Doktortitel oder Vorkenntnisse in manchen Situationen hilfreich und wünschenswert, aber nicht zwingend. Bei uns heißt es eben: “Learning on the job.” Und erst dann wird es richtig spannend.

Was ist das Spannendste, Unvergesslichste, Witzigste, Aufregendste, was Ihnen bisher in ihrem Berufsalltag passiert ist?
Nach einigen Wochen Berufstätigkeit alleine auf Gesellschafterversammlungen und mit Mandanten bei Beurkundungen zu stehen, verursacht schon Nervenkitzel. Zum Glück aber kommen die besten Momente immer wieder: Nach jedem erfolgreichen Signing, vor dem es heiß herging, wird das Adrenalin, das einen antreibt, durch eine Masse an Endorphinen ersetzt – ein tolles Gefühl.

Was ist das Beste an der Arbeit bei Greenfort?
Meine Kollegen.

Welche Einschränkungen bringt der Beruf mit sich?
Der Beruf als Anwalt im Gesellschaftsrecht bringt mit sich, dass man Phasen unterliegt. Phasen in denen mehr und Phasen in denen etwas weniger zu tun ist. Das Gute ist allerdings, dass sich diese Phasen bei Greenfort auf ungefähr 2,5 Stunden längere bzw. kürzere Arbeitszeiten beschränken und das Leben außerhalb der Kanzlei damit planbar bleibt.

Was ist Ihr Ausgleich zum Büroalltag?
Neue Orte auf der ganzen Welt entdecken; Wandern/Trecking (am liebsten in heißem oder Wüstenklima mit möglichst steilen Bergen), Laufen und Zirkeltraining, wenn Wüste und Berge nicht vorhanden sind; gutes Essen genießen (gerne selbst gekocht) und Musik (lieber nicht selbst gemacht).

Welche drei Begriffe assoziieren Sie mit dem Wort Jura?
Herausforderung. Sprache. Internationalität.

Sie planen ein jura-freies Wochenende auf einer einsamen Insel und dürften nur drei Dinge mitnehmen. Welche wären das?
Meine Freundin, eine Flasche Wein und noch eine Flasche Wein (alternativ für eine Flasche Wein, falls Beschränkungen beim Fliegen existieren: Moskitospray).

Welchen Tipp würden Sie gerne jedem Nachwuchsjuristen mitgeben?
Nicht stressen und Details auswendig lernen, sondern mit Spaß versuchen, Grundlagen und das Große und Ganze zu verstehen. Denn dann erst verstehst Du Recht.

Welcome,
Jan-Hendrik Korting!

I wanted to use my legal traineeship to look at something “different” next to the typical international law firms and therefore decided to work as a trainee lawyer at Greenfort. And right from the first welcome I noticed: Greenfort is something different! Here, demanding work is performed by a team of smart and very open-minded colleagues, thus creating an inspiring working environment. I was directly involved in the client work and immediately felt part of the team. Thanks in no small part to the active support provided by my mentor, there have rarely been days without learning anything new. If you are looking for an inspiring working atmosphere and want to open your mind to the unknown, Greenfort is the right place for you. I’m looking forward to the rest of my traineeship!

Hereby I constantly gain insights in different fields of law and I feel encouraged to bring in my own ideas. The integration in client work and the support by my mentor are very helpful.

With this feeling of being part of the team, I immediately started my work.

At Greenfort there is a perfect balance of a laid back atmosphere as well as a very high work ethic, leading to a great working climate in general. Since starting here as a Legal Trainee (Rechtsreferendar) this first impression is unchanged. I was immediately involved in client work and have already completed a few demanding tasks. One of the highlights up to now: The regular Greenfort Lunch, which consisted of a team lunch at the office, during which we were able to listen to a very interesting talk on the topic “Litigation Communication”. I am very much looking forward to the many challenges ahead and to getting to know the team at Greenfort better!”

My time at Greenfort can be summarized as follows: expand my horizon, think one step further, think outside the box, challenge and being encouraged. Right at the beginning – after a heart-warming welcome – I was entrusted with my first tasks. These were partly very challenging and introduced me into topics and problems which I didn’t know from university. However, thanks to the friendly team and the open doors in the office, it was possible for me to face these challenges and celebrate my first achievements. Thank you for making me part of your team and showing me the fun and joy of your work.

Evenings on the roof terrace, contract negotiations, walks through the Rheingau, notarizations of self-built partnership agreements, jokes during coffee breaks, telephone calls with authorities (all by myself!), clients and other law firms… These are only a few highlights of what a trainee at Greenfort gets. No matter whether you have already found “your” field of law or want to get a general overview of business law – with Greenfort’s “Movers and Shakers” you are in good hands. It is a great way to combine the level and professionalism of a large law firm with the personal care and friendliness of a boutique. Here interns are not only guided through, but really trained. I am very grateful for the great time in summer 2019 and look forward to seeing you again…

Working at Greenfort is really an inspiring experience. I am impressed how everyone is treated like family. It is personally and professionally enriching to meet so many amazing individuals with different backgrounds who work along in a team. I am happy that my mentors are always there for me and take the time to give me an insight in the firm’s work. It is interesting to work in different fields of law, switching from one field to another with every new assignment. I think it is important for senior students like me to get an overview of different legal fields to choose from in the future. Many thanks to Greenfort for this amazing internship.

I had an amazing time at Greenfort. I came for one month internship but from the very first day I was welcomed and treated like a permanent member of Greenfort. Everyone in the firm was very friendly, helpful and tried to make my stay as great as it was. I had a chance to experience various business law areas, worked mainly on interesting cross-border topics and attended different client meetings. I definitely feel that I learned a lot and got an insight into how a law firm operates. While I was working on my professional development I also had a chance to taste wine at regular wine tasting evenings in the firm, eat cakes in the kitchen on an almost everyday basis and socialize with people. Thus I am both professionally and socially happy with my internship. All this makes Greenfort an excellent place to work at and I would for sure recommend it to all students wishing an unforgettable experience. I am very grateful for this opportunity and wish Greenfort the best for the future!

The warm welcome on the first day by the whole team including flowers and a little singing should only be the beginning of an exciting and instructive time. At Greenfort teamwork is really lived! As an intern, I was involved in complex topics from day one and was given the opportunity to take part in meetings with clients in order to experience the practical working day of a lawyer at first hand. I will especially remember the familiar working atmosphere, which in combination with the professionalism and expertise of the lawyers results in an unbeatable mixture. At Greenfort – from associate to partner – time was always taken for me, even beyond business questions. I gained varied insights into a broad range of legal fields, partly unknown, and was introduced to notarial work. If you are looking for exciting and challenging tasks and would like to get to know a unique working atmosphere, I can warmly recommend an internship at Greenfort. I hope to see you again soon!

An unconventional friendly and open atmosphere – made by quality people – and a hard-working mindset – made by passionate professionals – are two of the ingredients that make Greenfort a genuinely unique work place. Here I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by a truly inspiring group of attentive and willing specialists who have helped me become familiar with the day-to-day work of a German lawyer. Being involved in practice matters of various areas, together with facing challenges (from dealing with a language that I don’t master perfectly yet, to joining the Greenfort team during the 5.6 km long race at the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge) have contributed to making my first international professional experience highly enriching.

At the beginning of my internship, I openly communicated that I would like to gain deep insights into labor and employment law – in line with my professional interests. The team of Greenfort took this into account and so I was able to get to know the lawyers’ working methods especially in labor and employment law and was involved in various mandates. All lawyers gave me a warm welcome and were happy to answer any of my questions. Greenfort has an incredibly familiar atmosphere, which I will always remember. Thank you for the time and impressions I had the pleasure to have!

I intended to use my internship to gain first valuable, practical insights into the everyday’s legal work in a business law firm. I was often told: “You won’t be doing much there – besides the typical things an intern does such as making coffee, printing documents or going through files.” Today, I can say with certainty that this was definitely not the case with my internship at Greenfort. The welcome was particularly warm and I felt in good hands. During my internship I was actively involved in client work and gained a lot of insight into the daily life of Greenfort’s lawyers. The pleasant atmosphere and the strong community within the office are some of the many things I will keep in memory. I am glad that I did my internship at Greenfort and reckoned that an internship in a business law firm is anything but monotonous or boring. Many thanks for the great time and my warm welcome to the team!

The Greenfort spirit represents an unique approach to law and this not only on the photos online. Insights into projects as well as introduction and support in learning juridical tools are guaranteed with Greenfort. Team spirit, modesty and down-to-earthiness are highly valued here. After numerous talks about projects and university study, lunches and court visits, it is certain: With Greenfort everybody is integrated, whether at the top or still at the bottom of the career ladder! Enthusiastic faces and inspiring words encourage not only the Greenfort team, but also own ambitions!

The atmosphere at Greenfort is unlike any other law firm I have ever experienced. The perfect mixture between professionalism and honest kindness influences the own working attitude drastically. Even areas of law and questions which one may have labelled boring and exhausting are becoming interesting due to their practical relevance and their importance for the client and useful for the future. Another big point is the open-mindedness concerning arguments and concepts one may want to add to the solution-finding process, so you automatically become a supporting part of the structure. I can therefore only recommend Greenfort as your internship, you won’t regret it.

For me Greenfort is a place where great, friendly atmosphere somehow manages to go hand in hand with extraordinary professionalism.

From “Happy Greenfort” song at the beginning of my internship (and many more songs that were to come) to everyday handling of the client work, from intriguing discussions about law to amusing lunchbreaks, one simply feels welcomed here. An “open door” policy in Greenfort is not just an empty slogan and the atmosphere here is far from the usual unfriendly corporate environment. Yet at the same time, the Greenfort lawyers maintain top professionality when it comes to representing their clients, which I find to be an exceptional combination.

During the internship at Greenfort, one actually gets a chance to work on real projects, usually with cross-border aspects, so for someone interested in international private law like myself, this is a just an amazing opportunity to see how its theory works in practice.

Everyone is very helpful, ready to explain everything and shows a great deal of patience, even with dozens of my actually unrelated questions, usually on the topic “…and how does exactly this work in Germany?”.

With today’s talk about digitization and artificial intelligence and their impact on legal services as we know them, I am excited to work at a firm like Greenfort and to have the chance to look into a variety of fields from traditional corporate law and M&A to new legal questions in IoT (Internet of Things). With this range of professional expertise and the people at Greenfort, I am certain that Greenfort is ready for whatever the future will bring.

A grey office atmosphere. That’s what I expected from my internship at a law firm. But from the very first moment I was proved wrong. I was received by a friendly mentor and immediately integrated into the normal daily work of the team of assistants. After a short time I was allowed to work independently. Shortly before the end of my first internship day, the whole team welcomed me with a serenade and flowers. My motivation for the next two weeks was therefore enormous. I will definitely miss the time at Greenfort because I was accepted as part of the entire team right from the start and was able to gain a lot of insight into the activities of an assistant.

The lawyers have involved me in exciting and captivating projects and allowed me to take on responsibilities from the very first day. They were always prompt to satisfy my curiosity or doubts and showed me a practical, high-quality approach to case-solving. I am rewarded so much not only in terms of professional but also of personal development and constantly feel motivated to push past the limits of my comfort zone. I was fortunate to be here for the firm’s birthday and was overwhelmed to find exactly the same huge smiles on everyone’s faces that these hard-workers wear during every day working hours. At Greenfort, I really feel the passion the lawyers and assistants put in their job and this is the kind of environment I will look for in my professional career. I came here with the idea of working with new colleagues, but actually Greenfort people are much more than just colleagues, they are a big family and I am so blessed to have been part of it.

In addition to theoretical studies, the study regulations demands for internships – to learn practical approaches. I didn’t even experience the cliché of preparing coffee and copying once at Greenfort. From the very beginning, I was challenged and promoted in all areas of law and integrated into the “firm family”. Diversified legal questions, some of which are less familiar from studies, a great deal of support, involvement in client work and constructive feedback make up the perfect mix and – in line with the study regulations – provide a “look beyond one’s own nose”. Thank you very much!

Working with different lawyers enabled me to gain insights into various fields of law with new issues. Anyone who does not only want to participate with already existing knowledge but is also ready to reflect on unknown questions will just fit in here. I could not experience any hierarchy levels between the staff. Everyone is important in his particular field and always a helping hand for others. Everything I just described makes Greenfort to what it is: not just a gathering of highly specialised and effectively working lawyers but teamwork based on friendship.

Boredom and an unpleasant work atmosphere – Greenfort lacks such features that characterize many other law firms and instead distinguishes itself by its uncompromising good-mood-vibe, amicable atmosphere and authentic humanity. The fact that the highest standards required and the highest quality provided go hand-in-hand makes Greenfort an outstandingly attractive address for (future) lawyers who set themselves high standards and perform accordingly, but at the same time value unrestraint quality of life. High-end and the good life are not mutually exclusive at Greenfort.

My internship at Greenfort started with a warm welcome and a tour of the office, during which I got to know all of my co-workers. After that I was entrusted with my first case. My mentor explained the case and what I should research in this matter. There was always a new task, a new subject you wouldn’t have heard about in law school before, thus I always learned new things. During the internship I had an office room for myself. In addition, being able to not only ask matters relating to law but also personal questions to all the employees created a kind atmosphere in which I felt comfortable from the start.

Greenfort stands for competence, inventiveness and working at the highest level. These aspects are essential for the daily work. The law firm demonstrates that this fact does not necessarily mean that cooperation and a friendly attitude between the employees have to be pushed in the background.
All this was confirmed on my first day. After getting to know all of the employees, I was integrated in the daily work at Greenfort. I had the chance to work on a lot of different legal topics. I really enjoyed this time especially because I felt very well supported by everyone.
During an internship at Greenfort you have the chance to see so many different things, get to know really kind and friendly people and develop your knowledge.
