Employment and Benefits
Employment law at the highest level of quality – locally and globally
Our German Employment and Benefits team advises national and international companies on all aspects of collective labour and individual employment law. It represents clients at every level in labour courts.
Partners Markulf Behrendt, Dr Hans-Peter Löw, Thomas Ubber and counsels Boris Blunck, Dr Bettina Scharff, Dr Sebastian Schulz and Peter Wehner lead a team of more than 20 employment lawyers.

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.
