Hello there and thanks for your question. I can only speak for us but we don't give preference to candidates with multiple languages but it is noted for future reference. If you are successful through the application process we may revisit your language skills when looking at seat allocation or international secondment. We offer you opportunities to learn languages and brush up on existing skills thorough courses so you can maintain a good standard of skill even after you join the firm. I hope this helps. Thanks!
