We concentrate on all labour law topics - with singular alertness, dedication and passion. Every client can expect this special attention to detail and enthusiasm with the solution of his labour law problems. Specialised legal expertise, many years of experience and great passion form the basis of our tailor-made labour law solutions.
fringspartners is a unique law firm oriented exclusively to labour law for companies. Created at the start of 2015 as a spin-off of the Düsseldorf labour law practice group of the major international law firm Orrick, the founding partners Dr. Arno Frings, Michael Bogati and Dr. Ulrich Wahlers identify the objective of combining the best of two worlds: the high standards of international major law firms and the personal support and flexibility of legal advice which focuses exclusively on labour law.
The demands on the quality of advice have increased sharply in the last years, particularly in the field of labour law. These intensified demands can be better met if the labour law does not constitute just one of the many disciplines of a law firm but is instead the exclusive specialisation. Dr. Arno Frings, Michael Bogati and Dr. Ulrich Wahlers have had one objective in common for many years: together with their team, their aim has been to solve even the most complex labour law issues in a reliable and practical manner. Unconditional commitment and goal orientation have provided the basis for many years of trusting client relationships. The practice focus is on key sectors of banking and insurance, the electrical and metal industry, media and in trade.
In complex cases and to assure maintenance of our quality standards, we work according to the principle of dual control. In this way, we guarantee that a contact person is available at all times and also reciprocal controls which, in our opinion, is mandatory with complex measures. The foundation for our actions is always the clients' trust. It is both our ambition and commitment to earn this trust every day. Our excellent reputation has been attained through our specialisation and international background. Confirmation hereof has been received by, among other things, positive assessments and recognition of Best Lawyers, Who is Who Legal Germany, Legal 500 Deutschland, Juve Handbook as well as law firms in Germany and numerous mentions in the commercial and specialist press. We have also been very active with lecture events which we have presented nationally for many years.
As a result of our many years of cooperative work with international cases and the execution of tasks as Managing Partner by Dr. Frings, we have gained an outstanding network and know the proper contact persons with clients doing cross-border business. This applies for labour law but also for other legal areas normally involved with transactions. We can connect these interfaces to corporate, competition as well as copyright law and, if applicable, also to criminal law, by calling upon specialists from our national and international network. We have successfully worked together with our partners - already for decades in some cases.
