Agile working

New concepts of working are changing the typical top-down approach, rigid hierarchies and inflexible processes. Agile working focuses on improved collaboration and a more flexible design of the use of manpower. We support companies in developing, structuring and contracting agile methods.

Full service for companies

We specialize in long-term, trust-based consulting for companies in a wide range of industries and have detailed knowledge of their processes and procedures. As part of our all-round service, we support companies in the development, structuring and contractual design of agile methods and practices, in particular in the design of contracts for work and services in the areas of construction, plant construction, IT and engineering. A further focus is the implementation of the requirements for agile working practices in terms of employment law, in particular by designing mobile and hybrid teamwork concepts that are both attractive and team-building in the face of a high degree of digitalization and that allow for the recruitment and retention of employees.

Design and structuring of contracts

The implementation of agile principles in IT and other projects requires, with regard to the determination of the effort and the price, the timing, the change management and the completion, a contract design that reflects these principles in a legally secure manner, so that the project is also an economic success.

We have the necessary experience and expertise and together we will find the appropriate solution. As a specialist in commercial and corporate law, Ulrike Dörrie advises companies on complex projects in international plant construction, the drafting of framework and individual contracts in the IT and service industries. Attorney-at-law Dr. Christian Strassberger has extensive experience and knowledge in the drafting and negotiation of purchase, delivery and work contracts as well as general terms and conditions and the enforcement and defense of claims in court.

Agile working and labor law

If a company wants to make the deployment and activities of its employees more flexible in order to meet the requirements of products or services on the one hand and the expectations of employees on the other, it is important to have the right strategy and the right legal structure for the mobility concepts. In addition to individual agreements, guidelines or framework agreements, this also includes company agreements, if necessary, in which responsibilities, roles and processes are to be defined, taking into account the multi-layered and complex legal framework of labor, tax and social security law.

As a specialist in employment law, Ulrike Dörrie is frequently involved in the development and implementation of concepts for mobile and hybrid working, workation and “work from anywhere” within and outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland, in particular for companies operating in the digital technologies sector that wish to recruit and retain qualified employees, including from third countries. Attorney-at-law Dr. Oliver Baumann and attorney-at-law Marion Mucha, both also specialists in labor law, complement our competence in all issues in this topic with their outstanding expertise and experience.
