About us

Our law firm was founded by Helmut Engelbrecht in 1999 and focuses on providing comprehensive counselling services to Austrian and foreign companies, institutions, and executives in the area of labour law and related fields of law. Our services are characterized in particular by:


As a result of our specialisation, we can provide the best possible expert advice on labour law. Many of our attorneys regularly publish in relevant journals and are (co)authors of important legal textbooks. We maintain contacts to all important university institutes that teach labour and social law.



We offer practice-oriented solutions that meet defined economic requirements and take into account the respective corporate culture. Due to his many years of experience as a human resources executive, our partner Helmut Engelbrecht is well familiar with the companies’ needs for consultation and representation in connection with labour law.




Knowledge of the relevant legislation, however, is not enough when enforcing labour law interests. We are familiar with the case-law and the procedural practices of courts and authorities, as well as with the strategic and tactical considerations of the respective negotiation partners or opponents.




Our clients rightly expect us to solve their problems rapidly. Due to our efficient office structure and our specialisation, we are known for our ability to meet these expectations at all times.


Individual Support

Our clients always know their personal contacts, who are most familiar with their individual cases.




An attorney who can immediately provide well-founded legal advice with the required expertise and experience is available at all times. Our clients greatly appreciate this "labour law boutique" advantage offered by our firm. This is one of the reasons why especially large international and national companies seek our services.
