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.
