We represent executives in all areas of employment law, e.g. when you need help drafting your employment contracts or service contracts. Our clients can be assured that we also take into account corporate and commercial law issues such as being appointed as an authorized representative (“Prokurist”), chief executive or member of the board of directors or being removed from such an office.
As our client you can count on us as we find reliable and useful answers to all of your questions concerning liabilities and responsibilities of executives and your special employment law status. You may benefit from our network of well-trained attorneys specialized in insurance law and tax law.
In addition to that, our labor and employment law newsletters keeps you up to date on the latest developments, recent court decisions and the implementation of new acts. Workshops organized and carried out by our law firm also help to gain specific insight into and a better understanding of this vast area of law.
We represent executives in all proceedings at both lower and higher labor courts in all states of Germany and the federal labor court. We also represent chief executives and members of the board of directors in legal disputes arising out of service contracts at district courts and the courts of appeal.
We represent executives in all proceedings involving dismissals for serious cause and dismissals for operational reasons, misconduct or personal reasons.
For employees in leading positions cancellation agreements mutually agreed upon are often in the center of interest. In such a case, we help our clients with the strategic approach and to meet their goals. We draft cancellation agreements and we help to avoid detriments in connection with social security benefits and severance payments under tax law aspects. Of course, we also take care of all issues accompanied with the withdrawal from a partnership and the statements for the public press.
As the values of the matter in disputes are typically pretty high, we are willing to enter individual fee agreements, which may also include contingency fees.
Working as an employee in a leading position increases the exposure of liability. We posses enough profound knowledge and experience in labor and employment law as well as in criminal law, to be able to successfully represent our clients if they should be faced with a criminal offense.
Legal costs are either specified by the lawyers' compensation act or they are based on the time invested. This will be determined in a fee agreement. Managers and executives can also ask for alternative fee arrangements, including flat fees (per matter) and modular fees (as a combination of predetermined flat rates, success-based fees and fees related to the time invested) for certain projects. Please fell free to ask us.
