Dr Marcus Richter offers advice on all aspects of individual and collective labour law to national and international companies. In particular, he has considerable experience advising on corporate acquisitions, reorganisations, restructurings, outsourcing and integration projects. As part of this he is responsible for both the strategic conception and the negotiations with unions and works councils on wage agreements, settlement of interests, social plan, company agreements and arbitration proceedings, as well as implementing measures that include the management of any litigation that may be required.
A further area of focus is advice on labour law compliance, in particular in connection with employee transfers or hiring contractors and subcontractors in contrast with the (illegal) “borrowing” of workers.
