Employment law issues play a particularly important role in times of economic change. CMS Reich-Rohrwig Hainz has been advising in this area for more than 30 years. During this period, we have been consulted by numerous major clients on all aspects of individual and, in particular, collective employment law, both before courts and authorities and regarding negotiations with trade unions and works councils. We also organise seminars to keep our clients updated on the latest developments in employment law. Many of our lawyers have previously worked as university assistants or lecturers and have contributed decisively to the development of employment law, both in legal literature and case law. The unique combination of academic expertise and comprehensive practical experience has been rewarded with top rankings in all of the major league tables. The awards we have received include the Advocatus 2013 in employment law and we came top in the Legal 500 and Chambers Europe industry rankings as well as in the branch magazine JUVE.
