Comment: Unwaveringly, this firm recommended in employment forged ahead with its steady and strategically planned growth. Experienced employment lawyer Thomas joined the Frankfurt office from WilmerHale, bringing valuable contacts in the industrial food service sector. In the large new team, he has already succeeded in building on existing work. The still homogeneous team often impresses the market with new strategic developments: PW took on some major cases as an outsourced litigation department – this was made possible by the intensive interoffice and interdisciplinary cooperation. The lawyers are using the firm’s new critical size to specialize, e.g. in compliance, data protection, advice to startups and transaction-related employment – where PW is increasingly called on by firms without a noteworthy employment practice. In such projects, PW shows how smooth cooperation in the international L&E Global network is these days.
Strengths: Corporate codetermination, international collective employment law.
