Labour Law

Problems with work, language and understanding German law?

Starting a job in a foreign country like Germany brings a lot of changes. Surely the biggest challenge is to manage the language, not only in your free time but especially at work. But what if problems with your employer arise? This could be a simple misunderstanding due to the so-called language barrier or: genuine labour law issues. Either way we can help you with our legal expertise and fluently English speaking lawyers, explain the situation from the law perspective and help communicate with the other party.

Different to other nations the German law system is not based on case law. “Everything” is written in the law books, it is the job of lawyers and courts to apply and interpret these laws. Only if that doesn’t bring a solution verdicts of other high courts can be used to solve a legal problem if the cases are comparable.

German labour law is generally quite employee-friendly which makes it difficult for employers to dismiss their employees. On the other hand there are several deadlines to keep in mind to preserve your rights.

Our advantages for you: 

  • 6 of 6 lawyers focusing on labour law are certified specialists

  • As representors of employees and employers we know the perspective of both sides

Traffic law

On the “right” side

A minor accident can happen easily and any time — especially if you recently moved to Germany and are used to driving on the other side of the road like for instance in Great Britain, Ireland or Australia. We can’t help you to get used to driving on the “right” side but we indeed can help you in fluent English concerning the legal issues that usually follow these incidents and their particularities due to the German law system. With our experience we will defend you against the other involved parties’ claims and of course enforce your demands and rights in and outside of court.

As traffic participants we all know that driving doesn’t always work smoothly. Sometimes things might even go wrong while we don’t even notice it instantly, nevertheless the consequences can be significant and substantial. Our traffic lawyer represents you with experience, skills and assertiveness in all matters of fines and misdemeanors. Don’t hesitate to contact us for further information!
