As a specialist lawyer for labour and employment law, Sebastian has been advising national and international enterprises on all issues relating to individual and collective labour law for more than 12 years. One particular area of his focus is advising domestic and foreign personnel service providers/companies in the recruitment sector on matters pertaining to labour law, social security law and civil law.

He specialises in designing the contractual and actual structure for using flexible personnel reserves (freelancers, contractors, contracts for work and services, temporary employment). Sebastian’s work additionally focuses on providing structural advice during the implementation of all types of restructuring measures (including all issues relating to transfers of businesses and outsourcing) as well as so-called post-merger advice, i.e. the integration of various personnel structures after completion of a transaction. He regularly represents employers before the labour courts of the first and second instance as well as before the Federal Labour Court. His practice especially also includes negotiating with works councils and trade unions.

Sebastian and Gregor Schmid are the local managing directors of Taylor Wessing's Berlin office.
