Employment Law

Our employment law specialists have established a sound track record over the years and have advised many clients on national and cross-border employment law, dismissal law, incapacity for work, employee participation law, pension law, procedural law, mediation, and fraud in the workplace.

New market conditions may seriously impact a company’s human resource policy and workforce. That calls for a lawyer who thinks and acts professionally, strategically, skilfully and empathically.

We are alert to our clients’ needs and result-oriented. We always aim for practical and creative solutions. If necessary, we will represent you in court.
