In focus

Partners Markulf Behrendt, Dr Hans-Peter Löw, Thomas Ubber and counsels Boris Blunck, Dr Bettina Scharff, Dr Sebastian Schulz, Sören Seidel and Peter Wehner lead a team of more than 20 employment lawyers. We have extensive expertise in company sales and acquisitions, merger and integration processes as well as restructuring and outsourcing.

The team specialises in collective bargaining and industrial action law, HR compliance, co-determination at company level, company remuneration policies (variable remuneration systems and employee share plans) and company pension schemes as well as conclusion and termination of employment contracts with management board members and managing directors.

We have access to specialists in key industries:
