About me

Frank Schmaus is lawyer and specialist lawyer for labour law. Since 2011 Frank has acted for the employer side in the field of individual and collective labor law as well. Apart from an interruption of nearly three years, which he spent among other things as an in-house lawyer in a DAX-40 company, he has been working for PwC Legal since January 2015. Frank advises, in particular, companies and groups on national and cross-border restructurings. He focuses on both operational and corporate co-determination issues, e.g., the integration of a SE into existing group structures and cross-border mergers. A further focus of his work is dismissal related litigation in all instances.
