P+P engages strongly in postgraduate legal and tax education but also in the development of non-legal skills. 

Post legal and tax education

In cooperation with other law and tax firms, P+P and the University of Münster and, in particular, Prof. Dieter Birk and Prof. Ingo Saenger, have set up postgraduate study courses awarding Master of Laws (LL.M.) and Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) degrees.

As of today, there are study courses for Mergers & Acquisitions, Taxation, Real Estate Law, and Private Wealth Management provided by JurGrad (www.jurgrad.de) in co-operation with P+P. JurGrad also offers compact one-week introductory Summer Courses for Mergers & Acquisitions.

Furthermore, P+P professionals teach in the Private Equity compact study course at European Business School (www.ebs-finanzakademie.de) which awards the degree of a Private Equity Advisor (EBS/BAI).

P+P in particular welcomes students and graduates of these courses for internships, as summer associates, or for regular employment with P+P. You will also regularily find current younger P+P professionals attending these courses as students which P+P encourages by granting leave as part of the continuing internal professional education. For young colleagues, both within and outside the firm, P+P Training GmbH established a five-month, practically-oriented M&A course.

Continuing education in the non-legal skills program

In addition to our professional training and continuing education, we offer systematic and comprehensive training in management and leadership skills.

The 4-year non-legal skills program imparts the essentials that embody the characteristics of good leadership and advisory competence and that are vital for efficient management: project management, presentation techniques, client negotiations, autonomy, leadership techniques, business development and the evolution of entrepreneurial abilities, as well as the development of interpersonal skills by recognizing one's own strengths and weaknesses.

The seminar program is accompanied by the P+P mentoring program, which consists of 360-degree feedback and individual or small group coaching sessions to emphasize various content. In addition, we offer optional courses such as legal writing or intensive contract drafting, mindfulness training or pitch simulation.

Alongside the professional training and continuing education, this training program fosters our advisors on their path to partnership.
