Our Services

Employment law

Our lawyers specialising in the field of employment law advise German and foreign companies at the highest professional level on all issues of individual and collective employment law - including representation in negotiations of reconciliation of interests and social compensation plans - but also on employment law aspects of company acquisitions and transfers of business undertakings.


Furthermore, we advise managing directors, executives and employees working in management on the drafting of employment contracts as well as in the event of termination of cooperation with the company. Part of our employment law expertise is advice in the area of insolvency employment law but also, of course, representation in litigation.


Our lawyers are listed in the Best Lawyers Ranking (2021-2023) of the business and financial newspaper Handelsblatt. We are also recommended by Focus magazine as a "Top Business Law Firm" in the field of employment law (2021/2022).

We have long-standing working relationships with many of the companies we advise, which makes it possible to work out customised solutions to employment law issues very effectively, quickly and in a spirit of trust. Our focus is not only on providing legally correct advice, but also on keeping an eye on the economic efficiency of a solution. Our contact persons are in particular managing directors and HR departments.


Many years of experience in assisting foreign employers operating in Germany means that we understand the challenges our clients face. This experience facilitates also the communication between foreign corporations and their German subsidiaries.


When advising managing directors or employees working as executives or in management positions, it is also important for us to address the client's individual situation in order to find the best solution for him/her personally. Depending on the situation, we strive to reach a mutually agreeable solution, but always one that is acceptable to the client.

Our range of services covers day-to-day advice on all employment law issues, including employment contract law, separation matters, remuneration issues and works constitution law. This goes hand in hand with representing our clients in court proceedings.


A central part of the advice is labour law issues in the restructuring or reorganisation of companies, including the conduct of reconciliation of interests and social plan negotiations.


Data protection in employment law is of particular importance in Germany, and subject of negotiations in employment contracts, collective agreements and data transfer within groups of companies.
