Labour Law in Cologne, Dusseldorf & Wiehl, Germany - Legal advising

Advising and legal representation in labour law

Although a company could not be run without its workers, conflicts can arise between employers and employees which can become a burden on their working relationships. Warnings, dismissals, severance payments and negotiating termination agreements are but a few of the disputes that can arise between the parties involved.

In these and a number of other matters related to labour and employment, our lawyers offer legal advice to employers, employees and also works councils. Because only by studying both sides of the story can an attorney specialising in labour law develop the farsightedness necessary for advising and representing every client with an unbiased and effective strategy.
