Employment Law

Ques­ti­ons of em­ploy­ment law arise in every com­pany. The ap­plica­ble le­gis­la­tion and case law change ex­tre­mely fast. So wi­thout le­gal ad­vice, em­ploy­ment law of­ten doesn’t en­ter the pic­ture un­til you’re al­re­ady ne­go­tia­ting a sett­le­ment. But care­ful pre­pa­ra­tion for ter­mi­na­ti­ons or chan­ges of em­ployer, and the right lan­guage in an em­ploy­ment agree­ment, are just as ef­fec­tive at avo­iding ex­pen­sive li­ti­ga­tion as cla­ri­fy­ing works coun­cil rights and col­lec­tive bar­gai­ning agree­ments. Terms for bo­nu­ses and tar­get agree­ments should also be pre­pa­red care­fully, so that they can mo­ti­vate the staff to do their very best while avo­iding con­side­ra­ble pay­ment ob­li­ga­ti­ons.

For that re­ason, our le­gal ser­vices in­clude both con­tract draf­ting and all-around ad­vi­sing on in­di­vi­dual and col­lec­tive em­ploy­ment law. We have ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in car­ry­ing out chan­ges in a busi­ness, up to and in­clu­ding shut­downs, as well as ne­go­tia­ting plans to avert hardships in case of lay­offs and sin­gle-en­tity col­lec­tive bar­gai­ning agree­ments. And if things do re­ach that point af­ter all, we can re­pre­sent your in­te­rests in any court in Ger­many.

Our team of spe­cia­li­zed at­tor­neys can an­swer all your ques­ti­ons about em­ploy­ment law, em­ploy­ment con­tract law, and the as­so­cia­ted areas of so­cial se­cu­rity law. Since we re­pre­sent not just com­pa­nies, but fre­quently also the in­te­rests of em­ployees and exe­cu­ti­ves, we have a sharp eye for the spe­ci­fic in­te­rests of each side.

Is­sues in em­ploy­ment law can be ur­gent, and prac­tical so­lu­ti­ons can pay off for you. That’s why you can re­ach your con­tact per­son at our of­fice quickly and di­rectly. As you make and carry out your busi­ness de­ci­si­ons, we can ad­vise you fully and ca­pably, and as­sist you by contri­bu­ting our prac­tical ex­pe­ri­ence with ne­go­tia­ting tac­tics.
