We understand your business needs, know industry, know how to implement projects and have a feel for negotiations – in and out of court. This is what we offer in addition to our detailed advice in individual and collective labour law.
Thanks to our high level of availability and short reaction time we support our clients in their day-to-day wording of documents and in their communication with staff, works councils, staff representatives, trade unions and authorities.
Works agreements, collective labour agreements, industrial disputes
Works agreements and collective labour agreements as well as support for employers in connection with industrial action is the focus of our advice services. We also offer many years of experience in specialist areas such as company wage agreements, change of pay scale, withdrawal from associations and defence against illegal industrial action by way of preliminary injunctions.
We assess the effects of elections of works and staff council members as well as supervisory board members (one-third participation and co-determination) in terms of content, timing and costs in advance and ensure the proper implementation of such elections in the best interest of the company.
We support our clients throughout all phases of restructurings and transactions. This is the only way to ensure a successful outcome. We take care of all fundamentals for a due diligence, prepare precise timelines and consult with our clients with regard to any necessary communication. Together we realize asset and share deals, changes in operations including staff cuts, closure or relocation of plants, transfers of ownership and involvement of transfer companies. As seasoned negotiators we are looking forward to supporting you in the achieving reconciliations of interest and implementing redundancy programmes.
