CLIFFORD CHANCE

Comment: Following staff unrest, this firm respected in employment has now stabilized and, in Frankfurt, advised a sizeable number of financial institutions on the current pay and bonus regulations. Topics fraught with risk, such as the supply of temporary workers, remain a central area of advice. The Düsseldorf office landed new clients here as well as making strides in restructuring. CC has set its sights on internal investigations in cooperation with the ?corporate, ?tax, ?bank regulatory and ?white collar crime lawyers; these are esp. interesting to employment practices in large firms because of their incorporation into all-round advice and their higher fees. FBD, however, is already a large step ahead.
Strengths: Remuneration matters in banks and transaction-related employment.
Practice: Employment advice related to ?M&A and ?private equity transactions. Expertise in international projects as well as company pensions and remuneration matters (esp. in Frankfurt). Also the supply of temporary workers and internal investigations. Isolated activity for corporate works councils. (2 partners, 2 counsel, 7 associates).
Clients: ?? Westdeutsche Spielbanken supervisory board regarding early retirement program; Fujitsu Technology Solutions on restructuring Paderborn site; auto leasing company on corporate merger; industrial company regarding General Data Protection Regulation; publisher regarding investigations by central customs office.
