We represent employees and works councils in their disputes with employers and also persons in middle and higher management positions. In addition to conducting litigation before the labour courts we offer advice in non-litigious disputes with employers as well as help in drafting employment contracts and termination settlements. We also advise works councils on their rights and options and regularly provide seminars on all questions relating to the Works Constitution Act (BetrVG) [German Works Councils Act] and employment law relating to the individual.
Our outstanding and experienced team stands ready to advise and represent you in disputes relating to separation and divorce. We aim to achieve settlements by negotiation wherever possible. Where litigation is unavoidable, we dedicate ourselves to representing your interests successfully in court, especially in relation to property, maintenance, pension and inheritance rights. We also have a lot of experience in disputes relating to children and endeavoring to find non-contentious solutions. We likewise advise on pre- and post-nuptial agreements and in drafting agreements for non-marital and/or same sex partnerships.
We can advise you on wills and contracts of inheritance and other inter vivos agreements. It is important to draft these instruments in such a way that later disputes are so far as possible avoided and your instructions are given the effect you desire. We offer advice on statements of patients’ wishes and enduring powers of attorney, so that you can be sure your wishes are truly respected in the event of sudden sickness or incapacity.
We can represent you in all disputes under German civil law, e.g. enforcement of claims arising from contracts of sale or for the supply of goods and services, in company law questions or disputes in connection with joint ownership of real estate. We aim to avoid long, costly proceedings. When drafting contracts, our goal is always to avoid subsequent difficulties.
