Labor and Employment Law

We advise companies and executives on all aspects of employment law. We support you in drafting contracts, developing personnel and remuneration models and help you to develop tailor-made concepts for your company. Our clients appreciate the fact that we develop pragmatic and tailor-made solutions as a daily point of contact for management and the HR department.

Our specialties

Employment contracts and variable remuneration systems

When drafting employment contracts, it is important to find the right provisions for your company and to adapt these provisions to changes in legislation or case law. By designing additional variable remuneration systems accordingly, we can ensure that your entrepreneurial interests are safeguarded when designing and implementing these systems. We support you in all upcoming tasks in the area of employment contract design and in the conception, introduction and implementation of variable remuneration systems.

Company agreements and social plans

Works councils are involved in various organizational issues, from software launches to personnel measures such as hiring, transfers or dismissals. Restructurings and operational changes, which often require a reconciliation of interests and a social plan, are particularly complex. We draft works agreements for you, negotiate with the works council and represent your company before the conciliation committee.

Implementation of conciliation bodies

We support you if a conciliation committee cannot be avoided. We are at your disposal as an active member of a conciliation committee or as an external consultant.

Advice and representation of municipalities

We advise and represent local authorities on all issues relating to the TVöD and TV-L: from questions of correct classification, transfer, dismissal and disciplinary proceedings.

Representation of departments and staff councils

We represent the interests of departments or staff councils in negotiations, in particular with regard to the assertion of co-determination rights and the drafting and negotiation of service agreements.

Employment law support for M&A projects

In the event of plant closures or relocations, we design employment law strategies for practical implementation. In mergers and transactions, a careful examination of employment law issues, such as dealing with pension schemes or co-determination at company and corporate level in share and asset deals, is crucial for a successful transfer.

Transfer of operations

Corporate change requires adjustments to operations and work processes. We offer tailor-made solutions and sound advice to ensure that all legal aspects of business transfers are taken into account. We support you in the preparation of information letters, in the modification of working conditions and in advising on the information and co-determination rights of the works council.

Termination of employment and service relationships

We mainly represent employers as well as managing directors and board members in the realization of individual and collective dismissal proceedings. In terms of professional separation management, we support our clients in all phases of the separation process.

Cross-border employment law advice

With the increasing internationalization of the economy, comprehensive legal advice is essential for companies that are confronted with employment law issues in an international context. We advise you on remote work options, taking into account local tax, social security and employee rights, and plan and support you with planned employee assignments abroad or to Germany.

Personnel leasing agreements or temporary employment contracts

One focus of our work is the representation of companies in the field of temporary employment. We advise and support you in applying for your AÜG permit, develop legally compliant concepts for your desired employee leasing and draft the corresponding employee leasing contracts.

Managing director and management board employment contracts

We develop solutions for companies, management boards, managing directors and supervisory boards and draft managing director and management board contracts for this purpose and are available to advise you on all questions relating to the liability of management boards and managing directors.

Social security status procedures

In many cases, the boundaries between dependent employment and self-employment are blurred. In case of doubt, we support you in the initiation and implementation of a status determination procedure or, in the event of a subsequent determination of dependent employment, in filing objections and conducting subsequent proceedings before the social court.

ESG concepts

Strong environmental, social and governance practices within companies are increasingly determining their competitiveness. In addition to the increased public awareness of the issue, this is ensured by numerous new legislative initiatives that oblige companies to be more transparent and take concrete measures.
Our multidisciplinary team of lawyers keeps an eye on the regulatory, political and economic development of environmental social governance and provides holistic advice on the implementation of ESG criteria in your company.

Company pension scheme

We provide comprehensive advice on employment and social security law issues, develop concepts and support the implementation of company pension schemes.
