Attorneys and Specialized Attorneys for Labor Law
Employers profit from our expertise and our many years of experience.
The developments in labor law are fast-paced; they are more complex, confusing and unclear, if nothing else, because of the difficult European law references. Working as experienced attorneys in labor law, we stand at your side as your legal counsel – protecting and defending your rights – in and out of court.
As specialists in business law issues, we have successfully represented small and mid-sized companies in Germany for years, just like we have stood by large companies focused on international customers.
The best labor contracts prevent legal disputes
No matter what you are dealing with – whether it be regulating terminations of employment, vacation days or even a job description – in order to prevent legal disputes down the line, optimal labor contract design is a fundamental requirement.
We at ATN stand by employers in our capacity as attorneys and specialist attorneys for labor law by drawing up customized contracts for the simple reason that standard contracts only rarely depict individual positions adequately. So, instead of investing time and money in unnecessary court proceedings, it pays to have well designed water-tight labor contracts drawn up for you.
There are many reasons employers feel they either have to or want to dismiss an employee. As attorneys and specialized attorneys for labor law, we assist employers in terminating work relationships unerringly, quickly and as cost-efficiently as possible. In this regard, we design notices of dismissal to ensure that they withstand scrutiny in labor court.
The Protection against Unjust Dismissals Act creates an almost incalculable risk when terminating employees if you are not adequately prepared. So, to be on the safe side, it is recommended that you seek legal counsel before precedents are created, even if the situation seems clear and straight forward. Especially with regard to labor law, cases are often decided before they ever reach a courtroom. The best lawsuit, in such a situation, is the one that is not litigated.
Long-term personnel strategy
Whether you are establishing a company, optimizing, restructuring or perhaps even looking to save one, a legally sound and long term personnel strategy is the basis for avoiding future labor difficulties; consequently saving you time, money and energy. We can help create and achieve a legally sound foundation for your long-term labor law-related protection.
Labor law – a multi-faceted field of law
In addition to the above topics, we not only advise employers in our capacity as experienced attorneys and specialized attorneys for labor law but we can also help clients overcome any other legal problems, which may arise.
