Younger Lawyers Forum – A LAWorld Initiative

Brilliant young lawyers are the future of your law firm. Within LAWorld, there is a focus by our members on the value of international networking and the benefits of close co-operation with lawyers and friends from other jurisdictions and to bring junior lawyers into the LAWorld family.  

Two European member firms - Bader Gnehm & Partner (Switzerland) and AC Tischendorf (Germany) have devised the “LAWorld Next Generation – A forum for Younger Lawyers”.  Junior lawyers from every LAWorld member firm are invited to the launch meeting at ACT’s office in Frankfurt am Main, Germany on Saturday 2nd November 2013. These younger lawyers will devise their own agenda, meeting schedule and working platform and they will correspond regularly and meet annually.

The objectives are to increase the attractiveness of LAWorld members as future employees of the brightest and best young law recruits; enhance international legal understanding and experience; improve networking and presentational skills and create better awareness and understanding of the strengths and business opportunities that exist within LAWorld member firms.

Two young lawyers are co-ordinating LNG - Friederike Jawad (AC Tischendorf) and Stefan Kunz (Bader Gnehm).  For more information about this project, please email or
