JUSTEM

Comment: This recommended employment boutique in Frankfurt remains an established market player, although competitors such as Vangard, Altenburg and Pusch Wahlig saw stronger growth through nationwide visibility. But Justem can rely on a broad base of clients in the banking scene, often with an international element. Here, matters related to Work 4.0 featured heavily, e.g. the introduction of technical systems on the interface with data protection. Like many, Justem provided much advice on the deployment of external staff and the German Act on Temporary Employment amendment. Mahnhold raised his profile in compliance, e.g. for employee screening and internal investigations. “Very good and reliable” was a comment from one client on the opposing side. However, a young partner, Dr. Jens Jensen, well versed in banking and remuneration advice, left what has up to now been a very homogenous partnership.
Strengths: Advice to (mostly international) banks.
Recommended: Caroline Bitsch, Dr. Thilo Mahnhold (“strong banking expertise”, “reliable, solution-driven”, “pre-eminent expertise”, competitors), Dr. Henning Reitz (“very good expertise, friendly manner”, competitor; “very friendly and competent”; competitor on all).
Practice: Extensive advice on employment law exclusively on the side of companies, incl. restructuring, collective and individual employment law, data protection and litigation. (3 equity partners, 2 salary partners, 2 associates, 1 of counsel)
Clients: ?? All-round advice to ABM Amro/Bethmann Bank (incl. on digitalization of HR processes and company pensions); Emerson Process Management on business split-up (public knowledge); RBS on bonus law dispute before Federal Labor Court (Bundesarbeitsgericht); Avocent regarding matrix structures; litigation for ILaS.
