Friedrich Graf von Westphalen & Partner strengthens Labor Law Practice in Frankfurt

Since August 1, 2020, Volker Marquart supports our Frankfurt labor law practice as Of Counsel. With this addition to the team led by partner Sabine Schröter, the existing expertise in labor law advice in restructuring and reorganization processes is significantly strengthened once again.

Volker Marquart is a proven specialist in the planning, negotiation and implementation of complex staff changes in large and Mittelstand companies as well as a seasoned adviser in disputes with executives. He has decades of experience first as in-house lawyer (with HERAEUS Holding, Bosch Telecom, debis/Daimler) and then as external lawyer in numerous projects, which he was responsible for at the interface between executive boards, management and human resources departments. Among others, these include reorganizations under labor law on behalf of SAP, Deutsche Bank/Sinius, MTU Friedrichshafen, Schuler AG and SEB Bank, including its subsidiaries. Marquart had been working in his own law firm for more than 20 years and is now consciously breaking new ground by joining a full-service unit with FGvW.

"With Volker Marquart, we are gaining an experienced colleague to strengthen the Frankfurt office, who not only excels as a lawyer, but also, and especially, as a strategic advisor to his clients. With his entrepreneurial approach, he is an excellent fit for our firm," say our Managing Partners Barbara Mayer and Carsten Laschet.

"The law firm's full-service approach opens up a significant expansion of my consulting practice. I can now offer my clients the service of a broadly based, nationally active and strongly internationally oriented practice from a single source. I am very much looking forward to collaborating with the entire team and the intensification of our project work," emphasizes Volker Marquart. A close cooperation between Marquart and the Frankfurt partner Sabine Schröter had already been established in the past months. Both of them supported the HUTCHINSON group of companies in the context of the nationwide restructuring of various companies in the automotive, defense and aerospace industries.

Our nationwide labor law practice of Friedrich Graf von Westphalen & Partner currently has 14 professionals. Further expansion is planned, particularly at the Berlin and Frankfurt offices. In this way, we are taking into account the strong increase in demand in the restructuring sector and at the same time we are strengthening our established labor law practice.
