Dr Andrea Panzer-Heemeier is an employment lawyer and founding partner of ARQIS, the big law boutique. Since early 2018 she acts as Managing Partner of the law firm while heading the labour law practice team which includes 14 advisors.
She is one of the leading lawyers in Germany which is reflected in various labour law rankings. In these publications clients and competitors say, inter alia, that she is “outstanding” and “a top negotiator”.
Dr Panzer-Heemeier’s main focus is on the support of labour law restructuring, especially with regard to collective labour law, transaction support and long-term advice to companies. In recent years she has increasingly developed into a trust lawyer for high-profile clients. She advises on highly sensitive, often political issues that have an impact on the corporate strategy of the companies.
Together with Tobias Neufeld she took the ARQIS labour law practice in 2020 to a whole new level by introducing the new consulting approach HR.Law by ARQIS: An innovative, holistic consulting solution for board members, HR managers and legal departments as an answer to all questions in the HR area – whether it is labour law, compliance, pension law, supervisory law or data protection law. The offering is unique in the market.
In addition to that, Dr Panzer-Heemeier has also been active as a speaker and author of numerous publications on labour law. These include books and expert papers on individual labour law, collective labour law, employee data protection and short-time work. Among them is an alphabetical overall presentation of comments on labour law key words in a book she published together with Dr. Isabella Grobys.
