June 1, 2011

Dr. Holger Thomas, an accomplished labor law attorney, has joined WilmerHale’s Frankfurt office as a partner in the Labor and Employment Practice. Also joining the Labor and Employment Practice in Frankfurt are Counsel Dr. Golo Weidmann and Senior Associate Dr. Ilka Heinemeyer.

Thomas, Weidmann and Heinemeyer join the firm from SJ Berwin. There, Thomas and his team were active in individual and collective labor law matters and advised on employment law aspects in transactional matters and restructurings.

The German Labor and Employment team collaborates with the firm’s London, Boston and Washington DC practitioners while advising clients in all areas of labor and employment matters, not only in Germany, but globally.

“We are thrilled that Holger Thomas and his team have joined our Labor and Employment Practice,” said Reinhart Lange and Martin Seyfarth, partners-in-charge of the Frankfurt and Berlin offices, respectively. “With these additions, we have taken another step in building our corporate practice.”

Rüdiger Herrmann, co-chair of the German Corporate Practice in Frankfurt, added: “The addition of this team represents an important step both in our continued development of a comprehensive labor and employment practice in Germany and in enhancing our very successful transactional business.”

“The addition of Holger Thomas and his team to our Frankfurt office will help bolster our position as a leading firm for transactional work in Europe,” said Co-Managing Partner Bill Perlstein.
