The Frankfurt office of GvW Graf von Westphalen continues to grow. On 1 July, the employment law attorney Dr. Philipp Wiesenecker joined the law firm as an equity partner. The 42 year old attorney comes from the labor law firm of KLIEMT in which he worked in the last three years as a partner in the Frankfurt office. Wiesenecker was previously the founding partner of the Frankfurt office of FGvW, which grew out of the local law firm Pilger.
Dr. Wiesenecker grows the employment law practice group of GvW (recommended practice, among others, in the Handelsblatt/Best Lawyers, Focus Special 2017) to thirteen lawyers at the offices in Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich. Further growth in the team is planned. The law firm is continuing its focus on specializing also in employment law with the new partner.
Dr. Wiesenecker advises national and international mid-size companies in ongoing employment law matters, especially in shop constitution law, in mediation proceedings as well as in restructurings and termination. His clients include companies in the banking and financial services sector as well as in the software/IT, medical technology industries and trade. In addition, Dr. Wiesenecker represents members of boards of directors and managing directors. As a result of his entering the partnership, GvW is substantially reinforcing its presence in employment law and in the banking city of Frankfurt.
Dr. Wiesenecker comments on his move: "I am joining a partnership at GvW which, as a well-known full-service law firm, has represented the interests of its clients professionally and reliably for many years. I am joining a motivated and qualified team in employment law, where I want to devote myself together with them to the interests of my clients. I also place importance on the high attractiveness of the law firm for qualified young attorneys and the possibility for involving national teams and also teams that cover multiple areas in the law."
Managing Partner Christof Kleinmann adds: "We have gained a partner in Dr. Wiesenecker who has a clear focus on providing long-term advice on employment law to mid-size companies and has an excellent reputation in the market. We are pleased to work together at GvW to further develop our practice also in the field of employment law."
