Renate’s daily practice
“I can assist you with all kinds of issues in the field of labour and employee participation, for example, preparing and implementing mergers, takeovers, restructuring or reorganisation, but also with the establishment or amendment of (collective) terms of employment and setting up the employee participation structure in a way that suits the company. I like to do this together, taking into account the interests of all parties. Employee participation is about talking and thinking together, reaching the best result together, a result that is good for the employees and the company. This is often the best way to achieve the best solutions. And if it is necessary? Then I have the legal brackets to help you.
