Employment law

Employers in today’s economy operate in an environment of extensive regulation and face a constant risk of workplace disputes and costly litigation. On the other hand, employees must fear to lose their source of income. That is why it is critical to work with attorneys who have the skill, experience and knowledge necessary to handle the complex and sensitive legal issues that arise out of today’s workplace.

We understand that employers and employees frequently face issues requiring immediate attention. Our attorneys are committed to helping our clients achieve their goals, so we give our clients immediate access to our lawyers as soon as problems first arise.

Our firm’s experience with employment contract law and handling business contract disputes on either side of the issue gives us valuable insight into how contracts should be drafted and how to attack or defend violations. We understand that both time and money are critical for an employee fired due to an alleged breach of employment contract. By focusing on quantifiable harm suffered, labor and employment lawyers can quickly negotiate settlement terms agreeable to all, all the while preparing each case for litigation if necessary.

A core aspect of our legal practice is the ongoing advice in the field of employment law for companies of all sizes – nationwide. We support companies in major projects like restructurings as well as in „day-to-day“ employment law related questions such as relocation, written warning, termination, and litigation. We attend or guide the negotiations with the works or employees council and we represent the company in conciliation proceedings. We ensure that your employment contracts meet the most recent court decision requirements. We help to avoid unpleasant surprises regarding delicate issues, e.g. the anti-discrimination law or the data protection law for employees.

We keep long-term and trustful relationships with our clients, characterized by a personal advice that is custom-made to the individual particularities of each case
