The employees in our Legal department have a wide range of responsibilities, as they provide all kinds of legal support and advice to the companies in the MEYER Group. This is where all our contracts are handled with suppliers, financing banks and our customers, the shipping companies. The Legal department understands itself as an internal service provider for the different parts of MEYER Group.
The department operates across several locations, which means our legal support service is coordinated centrally for Germany and Finland. This legal support includes gathering comprehensive information, making decisions on legal issues and participating in (contract) negotiations.
There is close interaction with a number of other departments, especially Procurement, Logistics, Sales and Design, Accounting, and Research and Development.
Some of the legal professionals at MEYER WERFT include industrial lawyers, fully qualified lawyers and syndicate lawyers.
“Our complex projects present us with extremely challenging and diverse legal issues. You can fully explore many areas”.
“We’re not just valued for our legal expertise, but also our ability to work with staff in various departments. Our company isn’t really looking for lawyers who sit on their own in the back room, working through their files”.
“I see MEYER as the perfect combination of the past, present and future”.
