Languages German, English, French

Gerlind Wisskirchen is a specialist lawyer in the area of labor and employment law with a special focus on advising international corporations. The excellence of her advice lies in her profound understanding of the business environments of her clients, her analytic ability and her strategic, precise, clear recommendations. Her endeavors extend beyond simply providing legal advice. She and her team are performance-driven and creative and strive to forge workable and strategic client-focused solutions so that businesses can achieve their business objectives. Part of this advice is project management, thus understanding the relevant factors, defining the goals, selecting the best methods and tools, and precisely implementing the set objectives. Gerlind Wisskirchen advises multinational corporations particularly on the issues of reorganization, national and international labor and employment law and compliance. She provides support to management – as a strategic advisor or member of the supervisory/advisory board – from the HR and labor and employment law perspective when business plans and strategies are being developed. Gerlind Wisskirchen is an expert on digitalization of the world of work and editor of the report ""Artificial Intelligence and Robotics and Their Impact on the Workplace" for the Global Employment Institute.

In a globalized world in which national borders are increasingly diminishing and corporations are facing global challenges, she has particular expertise in cross-border projects like business reorganizations (outsourcing, off-shoring), compliance issues, cross-border compensation programs, cross-border audits and internal investigations, board level codetermination, matrix structures of multinational corporations, the European works council, the implementation of codes of conduct, whistleblowing systems and IT-systems, the posting of employees and data privacy protection issues. She developed the "EU Labor & Employment Law Navigator," a comparative analysis of the labor and employment law systems in Europe.

Gerlind Wisskirchen is a regular moderator and panelist at national and international conferences on the legal issues of international HR management and on issues of cross-border Labor and employment law, such as the International Bar Association, the American Bar Association and the American Employment Law Council.
