What is it like to work at Born?

The straightforward answer is that Born is Sweden’s best law firm to work for. For the second year in a row, we have been certified according to the Great Place to Work Institute’s international ranking, most recently with a whopping 93% in the so-called Trust Index. We are particularly proud that 100 percent of our employees expressed that, all in all, we are a very good place to work.

Our goal is to be the most respected specialist firm in our area of expertise. To achieve this, we also need to be the most sought-after employer for associate lawyers. We consider our employees as our most valuable asset, and we are constantly looking for new stars.

As a leading actor in our field of expertise, our lawyers work daily with large and complex assignments. A major advantage of working with us compared to a large law firm that covers all areas of law is that we can take advantage of the benefits of a relatively small organization. Here, everyone knows each other on a more personal level, which creates a very pleasant climate and a familial atmosphere.

Do you want to be part of a nimble, modern law firm with cutting-edge expertise in transactions and a strong business focus? Are you passionate about working side by side with experienced business lawyers to assist clients with high expectations in demanding assignments? Welcome to submit your application to us at Born.

Born is a specialist law firm which specialises in private and public M&A, private equity, real estate, banking & finance, capital markets and dispute resolution. Our lawyers have long and recognized experience supporting not only many of the largest companies in the Nordic region, but also start-ups and fast-growing small and medium-sized enterprises.

A varied and inclusive approach

With us you will work on large exciting and complex transactions and other assignments from day one. You will do this alongside experienced and committed partners and skilled senior lawyers to jointly deliver high-end legal advice for the benefit of our clients.

Each assignment is unique, and we usually work in smaller teams comprised of both partners and senior and junior associates, tailored to the circumstances of the assignment. As a result, you will become part of a winning team early on, with each member playing a critical role for our overall performance on each assignment.

In our associates’ own words

One working day is not the same as the other, which makes everyday life at Born an exciting workplace. The cohesion at the agency, combined with being able to work with both smaller and larger clients, makes the work rewarding and interesting. A workplace I really recommend.

What I really appreciate about the work is the proximity to business, the close contact with our clients and the great cohesion among colleagues. We challenge and support each other week in and week out and there is no day that is the same as the other.

The colleagues are very nice and the cohesion at agency level is really good. Larger projects often require larger working groups, which means that many of us work very closely together. I would recommend you to come to us if you want to work a little wider and become skilled in business.

I learn new things every day and at Born you get a lot of responsibility early on and get to attend meetings and meet clients. It is a varied job with interesting tasks and you will be challenged but learn a lot!

Personal development

We place high value and great effort in continuously investing in our team skills and professionalism. We do this partly through organised training courses and partly by allowing our lawyers to be part of the action right from an early stage, generating unique experiences for a future career. We see this as a matter of course – we can only achieve our goals by investing in our most valuable assets, our team of lawyers.

Organic growth

We believe in long-term organic growth and when we hire a new junior associate, our ambition is to have hired a future partner to the firm. Organic growth allows us to maintain our unique corporate culture, creating a law firm that is always on top of its game and not dependent on specific individuals.
