TRANSACTRAINING

TRANSACTRAINING

Legal English. Practice-driven.

Carla Monteiro-Reuter LL.M

Owner, Trainer and Coach, Solicitor (non-practising)
After several years practising law in international firms in South Africa and London, I founded TRANSACTRAINING (Munich) in 2014. As a trainer and coach, my goal has always been to support legal and compliance professionals in developing the skills and confidence they need to work in English in an increasingly complex global legal market.

I've designed and delivered specialised seminars and other training/coaching programmes across Europe with a focus on Legal English and legal communication skills for participants from a number of different countries worldwide.

Over the past few years, much of my work has involved virtual/online training. I've helped individuals, multinational law firms and companies, law faculties and institutions specialising in continuing professional development training for lawyers. I look forward to working with you too!

Munich LAWYERS' ASSOCIATION

As of 2019, a half-day seminar on legal writing for the Münchener Anwaltverein (Munich Lawyers' association).

TRAINING APPROACH

Professional. Practical. Personalised.

Transaction-based language training

TBLT STEP-BY-STEP

Key Transaction (noun): "A specific English-language interaction or skill that a particular lawyer has identified as being central to his or her work."

1

Discuss. We discuss your training needs in detail, identify your Key Transactions or those of the lawyers you need to be trained, and decide on the form the training will take. Based on this, I put together an initial training concept and prepare a formal offer.

2

Design. I design a training programme and develop practical case studies and other training materials relevant to legal/compliance work and specifically suited to the needs and Key Transactions we identified in Step 1.

3

Deliver. I deliver the training and ask for ongoing feedback to ensure that the programme meets your expectations at every step. I can also conduct interim or final assessments to evaluate progress.

THE BENEFITS

fLEXIBILITY

Agile training and coaching solutions to suit your language level and requirements ...

effectiveNESS

... delivered by a qualified lawyer with experience in legal practice, using authentic legal materials and training tasks designed to reflect and address the challenges you face on a daily basis ...

efficienCY

"Style is the perfection of a point of view."

- Richard Eberhart, American poet (1904 - 2005)
