Since 1973 – from the beginning Küttner have specialized in Employment Law.


Looking back, it has now been more than 40 years since Küttner was founded in 1973. With the foundation, the firm was one of the first to exclusively specialize in employment law and today the firm is one of the most prestigious employment law practices in Germany.

Since the founders and named partners Dr. Wolfdieter Küttner and Klaus-Dietrich Küttner retired and are no longer actively involved in the day to day client business, the law practice is comprised of a team of 16 highly qualified and specialized attorneys. Our firm’s focus is to provide advice and counsel to employers, executives and works council members in the practice areas of individual and collective employment law – and related practice areas. Küttner represents employers as well as employees and their representatives (works council, unions). This enables Küttner Attorneys at Law to provide practical and goal-oriented advice and counsel to clients, ensuring legal solutions that are sound, economically optimized, and realizable.

The high professional qualification and specialization, the exchange with clients and the constant interaction between all of our attorneys in their specialized practice areas, guarantees integrated and optimal client services and representation. The focal point of our legal practice is the development and realization of client-oriented solutions.


Numerous German and international companies representing virtually all industries, sectors, and sizes are among our longstanding client base.

To be able to better bundle the industry-know-how that we have developed with our clients over the years and in an effort to make better use of this know-how, Küttner has decided to structure and combine our individual clients according to industry sectors. The following industry-sectors were defined as:

Automobile and Commercial Vehicle Industry
Chemical Industry
Health Care
Trade and Services
Industrial Production
Public Sector
Foundations and Non-Profit-Organizations
Technology, Media and Telecommunications
Transport/Shipping and Logistics

A key area of focus are the industries automobile, banking and insurance, telecommunications and media, chemical as well as the logistics. The firm’s attorneys entertain a lively exchange on the latest industry trends and developments. This supports and guarantees the highest degree of industry and sector specific counsel.

In addition to companies, we also represent board members, managing directors, as well as executives and works council members.

Most notable is that Küttner received the JUVE Award 2010 for “Law Firm of the Year” in the category of employment law. The following is an excerpt from our references:


Küttner’s strategy is growth oriented. We routinely recruit qualified attorneys and law interns in the employment law practice area, as well as related practice areas.

Küttner Attorneys at Law's long-standing organic growth is the basis of an excellent work environment, which is predicated on outstanding collegial collaboration and constant exchange between our practice areas. After a short period each attorney practices independently, this includes maintaining direct relationships with clients. Forensic representation is, of course, an integral part of this practice-oriented manner of conducting business.
