Law firm Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek expands its Employment Law practice in Frankfurt. Bernd Weller (35), specialist attorney for employment law, will join the law firm's Frankfurt office as Salaried Partner as of mid-May 2009.
Prior to his move, he had been employed by Lovells in Frankfurt from 2003 to 2009. Weller provides advice in all aspects of collective and individual employment law and represents his clients before all German labor courts, in arbitration committees and in interest reconciliation and social compensation plan negotiations as well as in collective bargaining. The focus of his activities lies in collective employment law, in particular in issues of industrial relations law.
"We are glad to have enlisted the services of Mr. Weller, a renowned expert, for our employment law area. He represents the ideal complement for the Frankfurt office in order to be able to meet the ever-increasing requests for advice in employment law. The addition of the new colleague provides an extraordinarily good fit with our strategic considerations on expanding the Frankfurt office and sensibly expands our full service offer," says Dr. Thomas Nickel, representative of the Frankfurt office.
The Employment Law Practice Group at Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek is thus also strengthened at partner level. In addition, the expansion of the field of employment law continues to be pursued in Munich.
