In each issue of our newsletter, we introduce people from our firm personally. This time, it is the turn of labor and employment lawyer Andreas Schubert from our Freiburg office.

Andreas Schubert joined the labor law team led by partners Christoph Fingerle and Stefan Daub in Friedrich Graf von Westphalen's Freiburg office as a lawyer in 2019.

Born and raised in the Baar region, Andreas Schubert decided to go backpacking through Latin America after completing his civilian service in a hospital in Freiburg. A trip that reinforced the decision to study law in order to better understand the basic principles of a constitutional state, law and justice.

After the basic studies at the Albert-Ludwigs-University in Freiburg, a stay abroad in India at the National Law University Jodhpur followed and in this course an internship at the German Embassy in New Delhi. The resulting desire to enter the diplomatic service of the Federal Republic of Germany, however, was shelved when he chose to major in labor law.

Since then, Andreas Schubert has always remained true to labor law in theory and practice. He wrote his dissertation on co-determination law at the research center for university labor law of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Manfred Löwisch, where he had previously worked for several years as a research assistant. During his doctoral studies, he worked as a legal advisor in the legal department of a university hospital, which sharpened his focus on business issues.

After completing his legal clerkship at the Regional Court of Freiburg and his elective trainee stage in the Human Resources department of the headquarters of Germany's largest bank in Frankfurt am Main, Andreas Schubert decided to work as a lawyer in the labor law practice of Friedrich Graf von Westphalen: This decision proved to be absolutely right. On the one hand, anyone who lives and works in a place where others go on vacation can consider themselves lucky. On the other hand, it is, above all, the exciting legal challenges that arise every day in an extraordinarily friendly environment of colleagues that make law and being a lawyer at FGvW so much fun for Andreas Schubert.

In his free time, Andreas Schubert prefers to immerse himself in a good book (most recently The Equestrian Army by Isaak Babel) or his record collection, and spends a lot of time in nature with friends and family, as well as on the basketball court or playing the guitar.
