Linklaters is pleased to announce that Marie Sinniger, a leading employment practitioner, will be joining the firm as Luxembourg’s Head of Employment.

Marie’s practice addresses all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law including; drafting and terminating employment contracts, handling employment issues in the context of corporate restructuring operations, cross-border employment issues, collective bargaining, collective redundancies, staff representation, social audits, remuneration policy, incentive plans and employee benefits. She also represents employers in a wide range of employment law disputes.

Marie joins the firm alongside Thomas Alberti who also joins the Linklaters Employment & Incentives practice as a managing associate. Together with Alyssia Mechalikh, associate in the Luxembourg office, they will be reinforcing the existing employment offering.

This is the latest addition to the global Employment & Incentives practice having recently welcomed Janet Lee, Senior Counsel into the firm’s New York Executive Compensation and Employee Benefits practice. This appointment is also the 53 hire within Linklaters Luxembourg office (since Jan 2023), further bolstering the firm’s platform in the jurisdiction and responding to client demand.

Alexandra Beidas, Global Head of Employment & Incentives: “I am thrilled to welcome Marie to head up our Luxembourg offering. The wealth of experience she brings complements and further strengthens our existing market-leading global platform. The global practice continues to be the number one choice for clients looking for advice on complex employment and remuneration issues. It is a hugely exciting time for us as we continue to grow to ensure we continue to meet client demand and deliver the best service for our clients.”

Nicki Kayser, Luxembourg Managing Partner: “Marie is an excellent addition to our Luxembourg office. Her expertise in employment law adds to the strength of our existing banking and capital markets, corporate, litigation, arbitration and investigations, funds and tax offering. We have a great employment law team here with both the technical skills and market knowledge to provide our clients with a truly first-class service.
