International Employment and Immigration Law

Our employment and immigration lawyers have deep experience in advising foreign companies starting their business from an employment and immigration perspective in Germany.

German employment and immigration Law is complex and subject to various statutory regulations which usually are widely unknown to foreign companies planning to hire staff in Germany. As German employment law is said to be largely focused on “employee protection law”, it is crucial for foreign companies to be familiar with some basic issues starting from the onboarding, including right-to-work checks, in the day to day ongoing employment relationship as well as when it comes to termination scenarios. Our experienced employment and immigration lawyers know how to navigate international clients in a commercial and pragmatic way through all of these topics. Many international companies from start-ups to multinational companies seek their trusted advice on a daily basis. 

Do not hesitate to get in touch with our lawyers. We are happy to answer your questions.
