GSK Stockmann reinforces its labour and employment law team with renowned experts. Alexander Insam will be joining GSK Stockmann’s Frankfurt office as an Equity Partner on 1 January 2021. He will be accompanied by labour and employment lawyer Martin Hörtz, who will start as a Local Partner
As a lawyer and specialist in labour and employment law, Alexander Insam advises national and international clients on all questions regarding individual and collective labour and employment law. He can draw on many years of experience in (regulatory) compensation consulting, in particular for banks. In addition, he focuses in his labour and employment law practice on advising companies on the introduction of IT systems, home office regulations and agile work structures within the Works Constitution Act. Since 2006, Insam has also been active as a mediator and arbitrator building up particular expertise with internal conflicts between employers and works councils or trade unions in the aviation industry, among others. Furthermore, Insam is also internationally known for his work in conflict management through two conflict cost studies in 2009 and 2012, as well as for Managing Conflict 4.0, an international conference that took place in Los Angeles in 2015.
Together with Alexander Insam, a team of two lawyers will be coming to GSK Stockmann from KPMG Law. He will be joined by Martin Hörtz as a Local Partner on 1 January 2021. Sarah Lahmer (Associate) will follow on 1 April 2021.
Martin Hörtz is a lawyer and specialist in labour and employment law and advises national and international companies in all areas of individual and collective labour and employment law. In addition to compensation consulting, Hörtz has special expertise in connection with the implementation of legal and regulatory requirements in the areas of compliance, data protection and (labour-related) criminal law.
Uwe Jäger, Co-Managing Partner at GSK Stockmann, said: “Alexander Insam and Martin Hörtz are an excellent addition to our team with their know-how in labour and employment law. With their experience and network, we will be able to further our advice in the areas of expertise regarding labour and employment law, corporate law as well as banking supervision law.”
Philipp Kuhn, Partner and expert for labour and employment law at GSK Stockmann added, “By appointing Alexander Insam and Martin Hörtz as well as their team we will reinforce our firm and our labour and employment law expertise in an excellent way. Particularly in the area of compensation-related supervisory law, we as a leading consulting firm will be able to consistently focus on the increasingly complex requirements of our clients with our highly experienced team.”
Alexander Insam explained on their future cooperation: “In recent years, GSK Stockmann has made an impressive development and is one of the few law firms in the German market that covers labour and employment law as well as compensation law. Philipp Kuhn and his team have already caught our attention when advising jointly with GSK Stockmann’s Luxembourg office on compensation related to funds. By using the compensation expertise, we have gained from working with more than 30 major institutions in Germany, we will from now on be able to offer our clients one of the leading consultancies in the field of compensation law. Furthermore, I highly value having the additional interfaces at GSK Stockmann with banking supervision law, corporate law and restructuring. Last but not least, a lot of work will be ensured in 2021 by the implementation of ARUG II for listed stock corporations and the management of the Corona crisis. Finally, I am looking forward to continuing and expanding my work in conflict management and mediation in collaboration with our dispute resolution colleagues at GSK Stockmann.”
With the arrival of Alexander Insam and his team, GSK Stockmann’s labour and employment law practice now has grown to 9 lawyers.
