“My career path as such began the day I started at Krogerus.”

My career path as such started on the day I started at Krogerus as an associate trainee. From my first day onwards, I have met the most welcoming and warm co-workers, many of whom have become good friends of mine, who are all highly intelligent and motivated, and who will always exceed themselves when thinking about our clients and their needs.

“There were a million different small things I didn’t know about law firms before I started working at Krogerus.”

The way to make the most of a traineeship is to be interested in your work and find things out, whether they are related to the task at hand or not. If I could give advice to someone who is starting their career, I would tell them to be themselves — but to work hard.
