Recruiting initiative: KPMG Law takes a broader regional approach

KPMG Law Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH plans to further expand existing regional offices and at the same time create additional opportunities for junior lawyers with new locations. The aim is to make even greater use of the location advantage that KPMG Law has over many of its competitors with its 16 locations for recruiting legal talent in the future.

KPMG Law plans to further expand its existing network of 16 German offices. The focus is on university cities with law faculties. In a fiercely competitive recruitment market, the legal consultancy thus intends to make even greater use in the future of the competitive advantage it already enjoys over many established large law firms thanks to its regional positioning.

Dr. Folke Werner
, Chief Human Relations Officer at KPMG Law: “The major locations are no longer automatically the first choice for many legal talents – not least because of the increased cost of living. By offering a decentralized entry, we are taking this development into account and increasing our attractiveness as a legal employer.”

As part of a three-year plan, KPMG Law therefore intends to further expand existing regional offices such as Leipzig, Bielefeld, Freiburg, Bremen, Hanover and Nuremberg, and also open new regional offices.

Recruiting Hubs are designed to help cover the recruiting needs of core teams throughout Germany and also support recruiting for major projects. They are complemented by the online hub “Flexible Workforce”, which has been offering a community for project lawyers since last year.

Folke Werner: “For complex major projects, we need to be able to put together large and highly specialized teams in a short time. This is where internal and external project lawyers play an important role – with them, the necessary competencies and experience as well as the required team size can be presented more easily and quickly.”

The initiative is part of a larger growth strategy. Since its founding in 2007, KPMG Law has grown steadily and now has 330 lawyers and a turnover of around EUR 1.5 billion. 130 million (fiscal year 2020/21), the firm is one of the top law firms in Germany.

Dr. Konstantin von Busekist, Managing Partner at KPMG Law: “In the coming years, we want to systematically continue our profitable growth course. To this end, we are further expanding our presence in the region, which is already one of our strengths. Not only for many young lawyers, but also for many clients, a local law firm is more attractive than the competition in the nearest metropolis. We see great potential here.”
