Experts in Labor and Employment Law
|Ogletree Deakins is one of the first law firms with a global reach that exclusively does labor and employment law. With nearly 900 employment law experts at 53 locations in the USA, Mexico, Canada and Europe, we exclusively advise employers on all aspects of labor and employment law – practice-oriented, holistic and at the highest professional level.
We operate internationally: Where Ogletree Deakins does not yet have its own office, we have a network of tried and tested local partners and can thus offer reliable legal support from a single source in all labor and employment matters worldwide. We attach great importance to solid, individual advice with clear, practical recommendations for action. We pride ourselves on excellent client service, fast response times and transparent costs.
The success of Ogletree Deakins is based on the fact that each of our locations knows the local employment law particularities very well. This enables us to combine our specific expertise in individual countries with the global approach of a company, especially when it comes to international personnel issues. Our clients can be sure that we can call on the right expert wherever they need employment law advice.
We advise employers of all sizes, from start-ups and medium-sized companies to established global players and the public sector on all issues relating to collective and individual labor and employment law. Our clients include board members, managing directors and executives.
With a large number of our clients, we maintain long-term, trusting client relationships and support them in all questions of individual and collective labor law. Other clients approach us specifically when a concrete project needs to be carried out successfully once again. If in the event of a dispute, an amicable settlement cannot be reached, we will represent you during labor court proceedings at all instances throughout Germany.
Ogletree Deakins Berlin provides a seamless global labor and employment law service due to internal and external cooperation with our colleagues around the world. Our multilingual team offers expert advice in English and French as well as in German.
Awards and Honorable Mentions
In the current issue of the JUVE Handbook 2018/2019 the Berlin office of Ogletree Deakins is mentioned as one of the recommended employment law firms in Germany.
The editorial staff of the renowned publishing house writes: “Five years after its founding, the German office of the US-American boutique is increasingly developing an independent profile: the team is establishing itself in cross-border business, be it global mobility issues, the market entry of American companies in Germany or advice on all aspects of international data protection. The fact that the worldwide network is functioning more and more smoothly is shown by the fact that it is increasingly possible to transfer originally German – mostly medium-sized clients and clients from the technology sector – into the USA.
