Comment: This firm recommended in employment made headway. Younger partners, esp. Willemsen and Vossen, are stepping out of the shadow of the still highly visible Wurth. The key to this is growing specialization, e.g. in company pensions and advice to management. But the basis of work is still complex restructuring and the practice’s nationally renowned expertise in advice on corporate structures to foreign parent companies. Issues surrounding the German Act on Temporary Employment amendment featured heavily.
Strengths: Corporate codetermination for foreign parent companies.
Development potential: O&P has succeeded in furthering young talent. Guiding these into the equity partnership will be the next important step.
Recommended: Dr. Gilbert Wurth, increasingly: Dr. Alexander Willemsen, Kathrin Vossen (“highly competent, target-oriented and collegial”, competitor).
Practice: All-round advice to German subsidiaries of international companies, restructuring, collective bargaining. (1 equity partner, 4 salary partners, 3 associates)
Clients: ?? Ford-Werke on CTA structure; Deutsche Post on sale of Güll Group.
