Dr. Nikolaus Würtz specializes in providing comprehensive advice about labor law. He primarily serves medium-sized businesses in the areas of trading and services.

The first step in the consultation is to analyze with the client what his specific objective is. The second step is to work out and identify the legal routes in order to achieve the fixed target. Dr. Nikolaus Würtz then sees his main task in the third step is to encourage the client to act in spite of legal problems - and not to draw out disputes unnecessarily with complaints about the "difficult" German labor law.

In addition to direct consultation, Dr. Nikolaus Würtz regularly conducts seminars on select labor law issues.
Another focus of his work is to support clients comprehensively and competently in criminal and misdemeanor proceedings, especially with commercial law relevance.
