Employment Law

Employment Law

The working world is becoming ever more complex, digital and mobile: We accompany you in this process of change, both in your day-to-day business and in your important projects. This applies to negotiations with works councils and trade unions, arbitration or conciliation bodies, in disputes before labour or civil courts, and in negotiations with members of executive bodies. We give you the employment law advice you need - at any time, customised, on point and reliable. Our goal is the successful implementation of your wishes and an appreciative and personal cooperation with you.

Big issues need reliable partners

Whether it’s Work 4.0 and digital transformation, compliance structures, external staff deployment, employee data protection, a transfer of business, restructuring processes or company pension schemes - our specialists develop tailor-made and pragmatic solutions to your challenges. We answer your questions on current topics such as CSR, ESG and sustainable HR management, diversity and company integration and health management. You benefit from our multi-layered industry knowledge, our negotiation skills and our experience in strategic long-term consulting.

Are you planning an international project? Together with established, independent partner law firms abroad, we handle all your important matters. We also offer a wide range of Legal Tech options for efficient work processes.

Know what matters

Stay up-to-date on all important changes with our quarterly publication "Focus on Labour Law”. We look forward to a regular exchange with you - at lunch lectures on employment law, web seminars or at our annual Employment Law Day. Please also feel free to ask us about our employment law training courses.
