Gintare Gailiute

Before coming to Madrid and joining Mariscal Abogados team I expected that half year of internship would pass forever, not even, the time at this international law firm has passed so fast that I did not even realise it!

I carried out my international practical experience in Mariscal Abogados as part of post-graduate Erasmus+ program. During the time studying my double master’s degree in Mykolas Romeris University (Lithuania) and University of Savoie Mont Blanc (France) I have gained theoretical knowledge that was requiring for so needed practical involvement.

Holding Master of European and International Business Law I could not find a better place to fulfil my internship than Mariscal Abogados. Its international background working with clients from European countries (and not only), various legal matters and professionalism of the lawyers, who are fluent in number of languages, made the internship experience interesting and cultivating.

I have worked on matters in diverse fields of law: company law, commercial law, labour law and others, involving European, International as well as Spanish legislation and jurisprudence. I have been preparing corporate papers, answers to clients, revising different contracts, translating articles and other documents from Spanish to English. While working as a legal intern in Mariscal Abogados I have learnt a lot about Spanish legal system, improved my Spanish language skills and understanding on how international cases are handled in practice as well as received a valuable knowledge and rewarding experience that have broadened my legal career possibilities.
