Bernd De Marrez has joined international legal practice Osborne Clarke as an employment and pensions specialist in the Brussels office. Bernd is experienced in advising local and international com-panies on all aspects of individual and collective employment law, social security law and pension law (both statutory and occupational). He gained experience at several international law firms in Brussels. Bernd's arrival will strengthen the international network of employment lawyers at Osborne Clarke and nationally recognised team in Brussels.
Quote from Thierry Viérin, head of Employment, "We are very happy to have Bernd on board as he will fill a gap with his pensions expertise. Pensions is a topic that remains high on the agenda at our clients. He will also strengthen the team with his experience in working with large global clients and dealing with restructurings and acquisitions."
Osborne Clarke provides the full range of employment advice for companies operating locally and across European jurisdictions. As pensions law and regulation has become more complex, and funding deficits increased, employers and pension schemes’ trustees have needed to adapt to new challenges and new solutions - and need expert legal advice to guide them through the often complex issues that these give rise to. We work with employers and pension trustees to manage schemes through both normal circumstances and trying times.
