In the newly published JUVE Handbook 2019/2020, WOLFF SCHULTZE KIEFERLE is again listed as one of the best commercial law firms for employment law in Germany.
Evaluation in the JUVE Handbook:
“The Munich employment law firm’s main focus is on German small and medium-sized enterprises. Increasingly, however, larger companies, some of which are represented in the Dax, are also among the clients. The litigation strength of the partners has recently been in demand above all in dismissal protection proceedings. They have been able to significantly expand their existing relationships with Bayerischer Rundfunk and the pharmaceutical group Aenova, as well as winning several clinics as clients. Close cooperation with a US employment law firm has also led to an increase in advice with an international dimension.”
Often recommended: Dr. Andreas Wolff (“did a great job on the other side”, competitor), Oliver Kieferle (“good negotiator, pragmatic and goal-oriented”, competitor)
Team: 3 partners, 2 associates, 1 of counsel
Priorities: Litigation, but also collective law advice for predominantly medium-sized companies, clinics and media companies, most recently frequently in matters of collective bargaining and social security law. Increasingly public sector; management consulting.
Clients: DAX- Group, including on collective bargaining issues; clinic in dismissal protection litigation; various executives; ongoing: Bayerischer Rundfunk, Aenova, US employment law firm.
