Employment law


Your Concern:
Are you worried about a termination of your fixed-term managing director service contract? Your cooperation as managing director with the shareholder or with your managing director colleagues is disrupted or strained? Conversely, you are planning to "escape from your contract"? You want to resign from your position as managing director but are worried about the consequences for your service contract?
Our Offer:
  • Strategy consulting and negotiation support for managing directors:
    Together we analyse the strengths and weaknesses of your negotiating position - but also possible weaknesses of the other side. Every case is unique. Always in focus: Your reputation in the industry, but also your financial expectations. We advise you as managing director in the background - or externally, whichever you prefer.
  • Drafting of service contracts:
    Service contracts for managing directors are a matter of negotiation, unlike employment contracts. You should already think about termination at the beginning of a service relationship; we are happy to support you, for example in the examination of post-contractual non-competition clauses and co.
  • Multidisciplinary teams:
    If your concern has criminal law implications, we will bring experienced lawyers in commercial criminal law to our consulting team.
Our Service:

We know that sometimes the working day does not finish at 6 p.m. or the weekend does not start on Friday evening. We are at your side at short notice and reliably when it is necessary. With us, you will not end up with the secretary or with a "First Year Associate".
We avoid lengthy memos but provide pragmatic and tailor-made advice in a digital meeting, by e-mail and telephone.
