March 2024

vangard | Littler defends its position in tier 3 of 7 and once again occupies a good place in "The Legal 500 Germany" ranking and continues its successful course.

We are particularly pleased with the once again very positive references, for which we would like to thank our clients.

The team is extremely approachable and knowledgeable. They proactively keep me informed of any changes. As we have been working together for a long time, they know the company and our business very well and can implement the needs immediately.
The partners are always directly accessible; flat hierarchies, team and partners act as equals.

In addition, there are hardly ever team changes, so you know your contacts very well.
Comprehensive, intelligent advice on the closure of several locations.

vangard | Littler covers all individual and collective employment law issues and thus includes restructuring, the introduction of IT systems and associated data protection issues as well as remuneration, working time recording, occupational health and safety and compliance issues in its range of advice. Thanks to its integration into the international network, the firm is also well positioned to advise on cross-border issues such as global mobility. In the area of disputes, separation and conflict management as well as mediation support are among the strengths; Thomas Griebe specializes in the latter. The sectoral focus here is on pharmaceuticals, transportation, insurance and telecommunications, although the firm recently also advised companies from the consumer goods sector on forensic issues.

Key contacts include Jan-Ove Becker and Dagmar Lessnau (both restructuring, co-determination and works constitution law) and Dennis Lüers (restructuring projects, particularly in the automotive sector).

Matthias Pallentin (occupational health and safety, compliance, mediation) and Christoph Kaul (restructuring, works constitution law, separation and conflict management) were named Salary Partners in January 2023.
