FOCUS-Spezial (November/December 2013)

"This recommended employment boutique gained a foothold among (listed) companies on structuring issues related to collective bargaining. This improved access was largely thanks to the greater reach and associated staff capacities that came with the opening of a third office in Hamburg (with a partner from Alpers & Stenger). Altenburg reacted to the rising demand for cross-border advice, incl. from Mittelstand clients, and set up the international employment law network Ellint. Strengths: Employment related to corporate rescue/insolvency; employee data protection. Practice: All-round advice to employers, incl. on restructuring and reorganization, also transactions. Advice and litigation in individual and collective employment law, frequently wage agreements. Civil service employment law, corporate codetermination. Also data protection and employment-related compliance."

JUVE Handbook 2013/2014

"This respected employment boutique is widening its spectrum and raised its visibility thanks to recent headcount growth. The firm is known for expertise in corporate rescue/insolvency and lucrative transaction activity, where it often works for other firms that do not offer employment. The team is increasingly active in employment projects and specialist aspects. The new Berlin partner Mengel enjoys a strong reputation for employment-related compliance and employee data protection and is increasingly requested by clients of the Munich office. The firm continued to expand by launching an office in Hamburg in January."

JUVE Handbook 2012/2013

"This specialist employment boutique's reputation was dramatically boosted by the recent hire of Anja Mengel. Despite its relative youth, it is widely viewed as an up-and-coming player in the employment market and receives positive feedback from a variety of sources. Working from Munich and Berlin, the team's advice covers a broad range of contentious and non-contentious labour law issues."

Chambers Europe 2013

"Altenburg has earned an outstanding reputation and established itself firmly on the market in a short period of time. In particular by reason of its expertise and high degree of specialisation, the firm is therefore often called in by other firms to consult in transactions. The opening of the Berlin office has been an extremely positive development, and the echo of the opening of the Hamburg office next year now remains to be seen. In Hamburg, Altenburg has already gained an exceedingly experienced and well-known employment-law specialist as a partner in the person of Dr. Tobias Schommer. It may therefore be expected that the growth experienced in the past years will continue."
