Labor and Employment Law and Social Security Law

Originally focusing on labor and employment aspects of corporate reorganizations and M&A transactions, our team now covers the full spectrum of labor and employment law and social security law. We act mainly on behalf of employers and executives.

Our experts provide planning and strategic advice on labor and employment matters, for example in plant closures and compliance investigations. In addition to assisting on all legal questions of operational business, we represent our clients in disputes before all courts of law and before arbitration committees.

Social security law

Our expertise in social security law covers all areas relevant to businesses and is closely connected to tax law. It’s where these disciplines meet that our clients benefit significantly from our specialization. In downsizing programs, for example, we not only offer advice on labor and employment matters, but also directly consider the social security aspects and options for optimization. We have also created our own digital tools for companies and affected employees to calculate retirement packages optimized under tax and social-security law. We work with clients not only on day-to-day business matters and projects, but also in connection with tax audits. That’s where our expertise in social security law comes into play.
