Dr. Thomas Lambrich studied law at Trier University and obtained his doctorate (Dr. iur. summa cum laude) under Prof. Horst Ehmann on a labour-law subject (“Collective Bargaining Agreements and Works Agreements”). After internships in San Francisco and London he was admitted to the bar in 2000 and started his practice as an attorney in the Munich office of the international law firm Baker & McKenzie. He practiced in our firm from 2002 to 2004 after which he became a lecturer at Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, the first private law school in Germany, where he lectured until 2009. During this time he also practiced law in his own firm and in 2008 established a media and sports marketing agency where he advised associations and professional athletes. From 2012 and before his return to our firm as a Partner in 2015 he headed the labour and employment law department in the Berlin office of Noerr LLP, an international full-service law firm.
Dr. Lambrich advises companies as well as individual clients (board members, executives, professional athletes, coaches) on all issues of labour and employment law. He particularly specialises in works constitution law and the law on collective bargaining agreements and made a name for himself particularly by handling several decision-making procedures before the Federal Labour Court. He is experienced in structuring and negotiating of collective agreements with unions or works councils, particularly in connection with restructuring measures. His legal advice furthermore focuses on the questions of deploying external resources or agency workers, also and particularly in connection with complex compliance investigations. Because of his additional expertise and experience in media law, Dr. Lambrich specialises in the strategic and legal advice with respect to media-relevant company crises where labour law is involved. His further specialties are stock corporation law as well as co-determination law, particularly in matters regarding members of boards of directors or supervisory boards, and in sports law.
