Law individually

Dr. Gerhard Wagner

The context within which many enterprises, entrepreneurs and employees act today is becoming increasingly complex owing to progressing digitization, internationalization and globalization.

This has a noticeable and direct impact on all those involved, not least owing to the large volume of legal provisions within the framework of which enterprises, employers and employees now have to operate and find their way.

Examples are provisions that apply in the course of corporate restructuring, outsourcing, reorganization and turn-around situations, as well as the law governing works councils and collective bargaining agreements.

A competent partner who works towards achieving solutions is necessary so that entrepreneurs, enterprises, employers and employees are able to handle the increasing complexity. I am such a competent partner. Based on over 25 years of practical experience in various responsible positions in industrial enterprises, together with my work as a lawyer, I am familiar with the needs and demands of entrepreneurs, enterprises and employees alike. My approach is and has always been to seek pragmatic, successful solutions in the interest of the enterprise, based on a sound knowledge of the relevant area of the law.


Dr. Gerhard Wagner read law at the University of Heidelberg. He wrote his doctoral thesis under the guidance of Professor Dr. Bernd Waas (University of Frankfurt) at the Private University of the Principal of Liechtenstein, on the theme of German and Austrian works council constitution law - a comparison from the perspective of legal history.
