We do not think from A to B – we think things through from A to Z.

We advise our clients from a holistic, full-picture perspective. They value our willingness to advise them as equals and our ability to act as a sparring partner. Many have been loyal to us for decades. As such, we are on the lookout for new colleagues: people who enjoy working in a challenging environment, have expertise in their chosen professional field and bring a strong personality. If this sounds like you, ZENK could be your next home. Collegiality and a positive management style are practiced day in, day out. We discuss things rigorously, but always in a friendly tone. The opinion and experience of each individual counts- and in the end, the best idea wins.

What’s it like to work at ZENK?

From the outset, younger colleagues are fully involved in supporting clients. This gives them the opportunity to develop quickly into highly specialized and experienced consultants, to prove themselves and to share in the responsibility of business development.

We regularly recruit partners from our own ranks.

We offer our recruits professional development, training opportunities, great clients and exciting projects. A high level of commitment is, of course, a must. Nevertheless, we also believe in a healthy work-life balance.

With over 40 lawyers in our ranks, we advise in all areas of commercial law. If you enjoy providing legal advice at the highest level, you’ve come to the right place. To work here, you should be able to operate independently and be well-organized, but should also be able to integrate into new teams as needed – across disciplines and across locations.
