Comment: One specialist discipline of this respected employment practice is employee representation law for public employers, which is mainly the domain of Laber. Lucrative work for the Federal Chamber of Physicians regarding an assessment of the term in office of a former executive brought much publicity, though CBH ultimately stepped down from the conflict-riddled instruction. The team, which is chiefly active for employers, was otherwise hired for restructuring and collective employment law aspects, e.g. by new clients Immofinanz and Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions. Partner Dr. Markus Goetzmann moved to LLR Legerlotz Laschet, taking his largely independent work with him.
Strengths: Employee representation law.
Development potential: The new offices in Berlin, Munich, Hamburg and Stuttgart open up new possibilities: staffing these with employment lawyers could raise the practice’s nationwide profile.
