Martensen Wright PC is an American law firm in Sacramento, California, specializing in helping Scandinavian entities to establish in the US. If you are interested in International Private Law and international business, this is a great opportunity for you to gain international legal experience. We help our clients with corporate formation, visa and immigration matters, IP, employment law and litigation among other things. We are looking for a Danish or Swedish legal intern to join our team for a one year internship, including a generous scholarship, starting in October/November 2018.

The internship will include working closely with our Director of Corporate Development, Dorthe Mikkelsen Wright, on corporate formation and corporate maintenance. The internship will further include opportunities to work with our lawyers on IP and immigration matters as well as assisting with employment and contract law matters. You will have a lot of direct client contact and you will get the chance to network and promote the firm at i.e. networking events in San Francisco. You will be part of our “bridge” to Denmark and Sweden and our ambition is to grow our Scandinavian client base. The position is a full time position and requires a J-1 visa for the US which we will assist you applying for.

We are looking for a law student who is just finishing a Master of Law program in Denmark or Sweden, or a recent graduate. Communication is key and you will need to be comfortable expressing yourself in Danish\Swedish and English both verbally and in writing.

About us: MWPC is an international law firm with native Danish, Swedish, Bulgarian, Russian speakers and of course Americans. We are a tight knit group of ten with a big and open perspective of the world. The specialization towards Scandinavia, especially Denmark, started with one of the firm Founders, Finn Martensen, being a Danish – American lawyer. Finn passed away last year.  The firm’s Co-Founder and Managing Shareholder, Ed Wright, continues the firm’s endeavors in the US and Denmark.

Start date: October/November 2018 (as soon as the visa process is complete, normal processing time is about three months).

Application deadline: August 20, 2018

We look forward to hearing from you!
