Dr. René Weißflog
The focus of his legal work is on labor and service contract law. His work involves the counseling and representation of managing directors, C-level officers, senior executives, employees, and works councils, as well as of employers. Dr. Weißflog has had extensive experience in the field of collective labor law, which serves him well during his regular engagements as an advisor during the implementation of complex working hours systems in hospitals. Moreover, he has acquired specialist expertise regarding the laws governing corporate pension schemes.
As he is a civil-law notary public, Dr. Weißflog covers the full spectrum of notarial services, from the simple certification of signatures to the formation of companies and the notarial authentication of corporate and real estate transaction deeds. His primary focus is on real estate and corporate law. In these areas, he provides legal counsel to clients in addition to his official duties as a civil-law notary public.
Dr. Weißflog regularly gives lectures on all issues of individual and collective labor law ranging from updates on current developments in labor law to training courses lasting several days on the rights and duties of employee and trade union representatives on co-determined supervisory boards.
Before beginning his legal practice, Dr. Weißflog was a research assistant at the Chair of Civil Law, Commercial, Corporate, and Labor Law at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena (Professor Hartmut Oetker) during his doctoral studies and subsequently at the Institute for German and European Labor and Social Law at the University of Cologne (Professor Ulrich Preis).
