EVERSHEDS SUTHERLAND

Comment: This employment practice comes recommended and operates in Munich with impressive manpower for this field, also having added a partner from K&L Gates to the Berlin team. The practice breadth allows a high degree of specialization by the individual lawyers, who are thus gaining visibility, e.g. Achilles as an advisor to international companies. International cooperation works well now, so ES can make itself a candidate for typical cross-border projects, such as deployment abroad and global HR advice. Activity still centers on a multitude of Mittelstand and church-related clients; Kursawe is a renowned manager advisor.
Strengths: Advice to management, strategic advice on staff structures.
Development potential: ES boasts an impressive headcount in Munich and is present here for Mittelstand clients. The other offices are somewhat behind in terms of visibility. Increasing activity outside of Munich could dispel the stubborn perception that the practice depends heavily on Kursawe.
Recommended: Dr. Stefan Kursawe, Dr. Susanne Giesecke (“solid employment advice”, client), increasingly: Frank Achilles (“highly competent”, competitor).
Practice: Extensive advice and litigation in individual and collective employment law (incl. transactions and due diligence). (8 partners, 5 counsel, 15 associates, 1 of counsel)
Clients: ?? Aida on relocating production to Germany; Multivac on transfer of business; Roeckl on restructuring; Amundi Asset Management on company pensions; ongoing advice to Avon.
