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.

“Team spirit” is not just a thing they are talking about at Greenfort, they are living it. My welcome by the team was very warm and so is the atmosphere within the firm, which is very important to me. From the beginning the lawyers entrusted me with challenging and fascinating tasks. 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. My first weeks at Greenfort have exceeded my expectations by far and I am looking forward to the time ahead as a member of “Team Greenfort”

Because my welcome now was as warm as my farewell then, it was a feeling of well-being from the moment when I passed the door. With this feeling of being part of the team, I immediately started my work. The first talks with my new colleagues promise a time of focusing on my preferred field of law (Compliance) as well as learning a bunch of new things.

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!”

Welcome, Alessandra!
(Legal Internship Italy)

Allesandra about her internship: First thing that comes to my mind when thinking about Greenfort is: “WOW!” Everything, from the people to the welcoming traditions, from Lord Greenfort’s legend to the songs, from the variety of fields of expertise and challenging law cases to the top legal experts/mentors one can find here, literally everything has contributed to make my internship a once-in-life time experience. 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. Stay hungry, stay Green!

Christoph von Campenhausen
(Internship Uni Freiburg)

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!

Greenfort in one sentence: Top legal work at the best of moods!

Greenfort strives for excellence in all areas and the atmosphere in the office is great. The office is very nice and comfortable. More importantly, Greenfort cares about their employees and make you feel welcome. On the second day of my internship, there was a surprise event for all employees so I was able to get to know everyone in a different context. Working with the many excellent lawyers gives me the opportunity to learn a lot and get a feeling for the practical work.

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.

Pierre Klotz
(Internship Uni Mannheim)

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.

Lukas Fleck
(Internship Uni Frankfurt)

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.
