People first – some say it, we mean it

For Brækhus, it has always been important to take care of the people in firm. At our firm, there is room for everyone. Brækhus is a workplace where everyone is seen and where everyone contributes to giving clients the optimal client experience. In 2024, we made a value-based decision to make all our employees co-owners of the firm. We believe involvement and ownership in the firm ensures belonging, motivation, commitment and job satisfaction.

All Brækhus employees are involved in deciding our shared future. As an employee, you have the right to attend and vote at the general meeting and will be paid dividends.

We are always looking for knowledgeable and committed lawyers, both recent graduates and more experienced candidates. Feel free to send us an unsolicited application.

At Brækhus, I am part of an inspiring team, which means that I am constantly developing as a lawyer, and enjoy my job a lot.

A good social community

The social environment is highly valued at Brækhus. Our summer and Christmas parties are well established and pleasant traditions. We also arrange cottage trips, and every other year the whole firm goes on a trip together. In 2022 we visited Lofoten and in 2024 we will be visiting Svalbard.

Here, everyone is included. We talk to and not about, we bring each other up, not down. We take care of everyone and treat everyone with the same respect.

Our corporate sports team organises a variety of social activities such as a weekly running group, tennis, skiing, golf, football training and participation in the Holmenkollen Relay.
