Labour law / HR

Our labor law specialists advise companies on all aspects of individual and collective labour law, both national and international. Our activities also include the related social security law.

In addition, we support companies as well as board members and managing directors in the conclusion, amendment and termination of employment contracts of managing directors and/or board members. This advice also covers consultancy agreements with external service providers as for example interim managers.

We have many years of experience in international contexts. Advice in English is a matter of course. We also advise in French and Italian. Through our international network, we can offer nationally specialised legal advice around the globe with very short response times.

The lawyers of the practice group act as daily contacts for our clients' management and human resources departments on all labour law issues - from recruiting and the conclusion of an employment or service contract (or any other contract related to the assignment of temporary staff) through to its termination.

We advise our clients in questions concerning works constitution law from the formation of a works council, to the constructive cooperation with the works council up to legal disputes with the works council or one of its members. We support companies without works council in questions regarding the communication with the employees and the possible formation of a works council including the question whether the foundation of a works council can be legally prevented, maybe by establishing alternative staff representation models.

Another main focus is the structural counseling of companies and groups of companies considering co-determination, collective bargaining and works constitution law as well as the support of mergers and acquisitions – ranging from the due diligence and the accompanying counseling concerning the transition of employment contracts (§ 613a German Civil Code) to the termination of the post merger phase (in particular adjustment and draft of working conditions and employment of temporary workers following the transaction).

We finally advise our clients in temporary crises (introduction of short-time working, temporary salary reductions and other temporary adjustments to working conditions), on rationalisation and staff reduction measures as well as on the liquidation and closure of companies within and outside the insolvency period.
