Labor law plays just as important a role in business life as tax law. In Germany, we have an employee protection law with the consequence that employers are permanently under obligation and lose out in court. It is the task of the specialist lawyer for labor law to advise employers already during the initiation of an employment relationship, to negotiate the optimal employment contract for them and, in the event of separation, to conduct the lawsuit in the best possible way, taking into account current case law. The pandemic has shown us that the restrictions have hit the labor market the hardest. In any situation, it is the lawyer's task to protect the client from further damage and to think entrepreneurially.

Especially the medium-sized employer needs, in addition to a well-functioning accounting department, optimal advice in tax law. Only in this way can labor and corporate law problems be solved in his favor. The purchase of real estate is not the ultimate solution, but it is a process that can be a lasting solution through optimal advice. The goal is to use knowledge and skills to positively change the professional life of the client and thus create new prospects for the future.
