Dr. Susanne Djie

Lawyer and owner

Dr. Susanne Djie studied law at the University of Cologne. She received her doctorate at the Institute of Civil Procedural Law (“Zivilprozessrecht”) under Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hanns Prütting.

This was followed by her legal internship (“Referendarzeit”) at the Higher Regional Court of Cologne and several years of work as a lawyer in law firms of various sizes: Magic Circle law firms, large law firms with multidisciplinary units, medium-sized law firms, large media companies and law firms run by individual lawyers, where she worked mainly in the fields of M&A and corporate and commercial law. She eventually concluded that her wide-ranging experience and knowledge was a valuable business asset and resolved to make it available to law firms as a recruitment consultancy service.

Since then, she has played a key role in developing international law firms, boutique firms, and Big Four legal departments, in some cases from the ground up. One sign of her success is that all of her customers belong to her well-established portfolio of clients and hence the acquisition of new clients is largely based on personal recommendations.
