The importance of internships for student development and member collaboration


Sherrards Solicitors are very proud to be part of Alliott Group, an international alliance of solicitors and accountancy firms around the globe.

Audalis, Alliott Group’s multidisciplinary member in Germany, attach great importance to their international relations, with all staff being encouraged to take part in their employee exchange and internship programmes.

The exchanges the firm undertakes with those within the Alliott Alliance is especially important as clients can benefit directly from contacts made during the visits.

Alexander Marmor, son of Paul Marmor, Partner at London law firm member Sherrards Solicitors, was the last secondee that audalis hosted and during his internship he was able to gain deep insights into the working processes at the firm and improve his German language skills.

In return Maximilian Block, son of Martina Block, completed an internship at Sherrards in March. A physics student, this was a great opportunity for Maximilian to get to know the country and its people, and a chance to exchange ideas with his peers on an international level.

During his time in London, Maximilian networked at a “young professionals” event on the topic of “Wellbeing” and listened to a talk by Anthony Julius, a well known lawyer in the UK, who had presided over the divorce from Princess Diana.

Maximilian said: “This visit confirmed my decision to pursue my education abroad. I am very grateful to the opportunity that audalis and Sherrards Solicitors have given me. I would recommend a visit to London for all students and those starting their career.”
