The Produktkanzlei is expanding – we are looking for the best of the friendliest!

Careers at the Produktkanzlei

Advising on all facets of the product is the DNA of our law firm. We offer our clients legal advice in product law at the highest level. We often develop creative new solutions for our clients in this cutting-edge field in a dynamic legal environment. While, as a spin-off from international commercial law firms, we advise our distinguished clients with legal excellence, pleasure in our daily work and the work-life balance are not neglected.

We are currently looking for new colleagues for our team!

Lawyer (m/f/d) Chemicals regulation/sustainability

With the “Green Deal” and the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability, the EU has set the framework for the ecological turnaround. Chemicals regulation is a particular focus here. Countless new legal requirements for the manufacture, import and use of chemicals pose major challenges for players at all levels of the supply chain in all sectors.

Interested in working as a lawyer in an area that is legally challenging and at the same time offers countless opportunities for development and specialisation in the coming years? Ready to learn from day one at the top of the market and work on exciting, international mandates in one of the leading law firms in this field? Then we look forward to getting to know you.

What we do
In this highly dynamic environment, we advise and represent clients as traditional lawyers in the drafting of contracts and in proceedings before national authorities and courts. In addition, we assist companies in adapting operational processes in the area of material & product compliance, advise and represent company and association interests in consultation procedures at European and international level and, of course, also represent companies in disputes before the European courts or special adjudicatory bodies such as the Board of Appeal of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

Produktkanzlei is a law firm specialising exclusively in product law with its headquarters in Martinipark in Augsburg and a further office in Berlin. As a spin-off of international law firms, we offer renowned domestic and foreign clients excellent legal advice in a dynamic environment. As a smaller and more informal unit, we are on a par with large law firms in terms of expertise, but we are noticeably different. And no, this is not just a phrase, but a serious creed.

Who we are looking for
We are currently looking for engaged and inquisitive colleagues (m/f/d), preferably for our Augsburg office and for Martin Ahlhaus’ renowned practice throughout Germany, who are enthusiastic and passionate about working on complex factual and legal issues at the highest level. Above-average exam grades as well as an interest in technical matters are required for this position. Due to the international orientation of our law firm, a very good command of English is also desirable. A doctorate or other additional qualifications are of course welcome.

We do not expect any specific prior knowledge in the field of chemicals law – however, a basic orientation towards public law or European law would certainly be an advantage.

What we offer
We offer a varied job in a real team, very well-equipped workplaces in a new, modern office and above-average remuneration. Individual offices with co-working areas available at the same time, flexible working time models and opportunities to work from home are a matter of course. Find out that we mean business too!

We also offer a lively start-up atmosphere, open involvement in shaping the firm, flexible career opportunities, space to develop your own specialisation and academic work as well as a clear focus on joint success – but without excessive expectations of billable hours or turnover. In other words: Highly specialised work at the highest level without the disadvantages of a large law firm? Yes – we can offer that too!

Have we piqued your interest? Then we look forward to receiving your application!
