Employment & Pensions


The labour market is dynamic, as is labour law – such is evident from numerous legal changes in 2016. The increase of maximum working hours in combination with work-related travel times, restrictions on non-compete clauses and greater transparency in all-in contracts are only a few examples of several material changes in labour law. What is more, European regulations are also becoming an increasingly important factor for you. To remain successful, you must take appropriate action in all areas pertaining to labour law.

We are the leading law firm in all fields of individual and collective labour law. Our areas of expertise include, in particular, the works constitution and all matters related to collective regulations as well as European labour law. Moreover, we specialise in pension fund law and the special labour regulations applicable to former state-owned companies. Further key areas covered by our lawyers include the medical sector, the posting of employees abroad and social security law.

We provide our clients with legal advice but also representing them in court (including the CJEU) and before public authorities. We also advise and support you in negotiations with unions and works councils. Our expertise in labour law encompasses a wide variety of different sectors. We provide guidance and support to banks, insurance companies and businesses in the industrial, telecommunications and service sectors as well as to health institutions and universities.

The main focus of our activities is on advising clients on the establishment and termination of employment contracts, on negotiating and concluding collective bargaining agreements and works agreements between employers and works councils (in particular working time schemes, social compensation plans), and on providing advice on labour law issues related to changes in working conditions and all aspects of employee data protection law. We also advise you on all labour law aspects of business transactions, restructurings and reorganisations.

Labour law is without doubt a key factor for investment decisions in CEE countries. Our vast expertise in this field is reflected year after year in top rankings on both the national and international level (Legal500, Chambers, JUVE, Advocatus).
