Legal counsel: follow through cases right to the end.
The dynamic environment guarantees interesting and varied tasks. You guarantee SBB’s legal security with your stamina and targeted professional expertise.
Legal counsel, family man who loves to be in the water and is a fan of card and board games.
Diverse areas of work.
As a legal counsel you provide legal advice of all kinds: on technical rail-specific issues and on all kinds of other topics, such as procurement, construction, personnel, quality or communication. Your knowledge is sought after for legal issues such as contract reviews, real estate lease agreements, data protection or copyright issues. With your negotiation skills and a persuasive style of communication, you overcome the exciting and varied day-to-day challenges at SBB. Your work is meaningful.
Different to a law firm.
Our legal counsels deal with everything from small legal issues up to large court cases. Your versatile legal knowledge is therefore essential. At SBB legal issues are mostly handled internally. It is rare that additional external specialists are called in. As a legal counsel you support and supervise your cases until they are concluded. This means you have more targeted control over your successes. Interacting with colleagues across the whole company or partner companies enriches and adds to your legal activities. Unlike in a law firm, you work on cases in a wide range of legal areas, but you always work for your company.
Grow beyond yourself.
Our legal counsels develop and explore new legal questions that require a wide range of expertise due to the scope of their application. As one of the largest companies in Switzerland, there are always new unprecedented cases that you encounter in legal advice. You find creative solutions to these within the legal guidelines and based on comparable court decisions. In particular, you rely on your ability to grasp issues quickly and your conceptual and analytical thinking style. You continue to develop each day.
