Employment law is of paramount importance at Noerr and has been so for more than 40 years. Our experienced team of around 40 advisers in five locations in Germany is one of the country’s leading employment law practices. All of our lawyers work with a passion for, and operate exclusively in, employment law and related fields. They are valued and recognised internally and externally, locally and internationally, and understand the value of networking within the industry. They oversee with great success the many transactions and projects managed by Noerr. But that is not all: complex employment-law advice still forms the mainstay for our group of experts – particularly when compared to our competitors – and this is dovetailed with effective support from other specialist departments.

For innovative working-time models and tailor-made incentivising remuneration structures, our many years of experience help you to achieve your business goals. Our advice on using temporary workers and on contracts for services guides you in deploying workers who are not employed by your company. We take care of official permits (e.g. licences to supply temporary workers) and represent your interests vis-a-vis government authorities in contentious proceedings.
Company pension schemes are increasingly becoming a burden for many companies due to changing circumstances. The restructuring of existing systems or the introduction of new forms of pension provision are therefore becoming more and more important. This also applies to the conversion of earnings into pension contributions (Entgeltumwandlung), the risks of which are often not identified or correctly assessed. In addition, court rulings are resulting in an ever greater risk of liability for the employer. We ensure that risks are identified and eliminated and assist in establishing clear and future-oriented structures for pension provision.
