Former CMS attorney Ursula Roberts has joined PwC Legal Austria as Partner and Head of Employment.
Roberts has over 25 years of professional experience and specializes in employment and social law. She represents clients in labor and social law cases before courts and administrative authorities, in particular in disputes before the Labor Court, as well as in dismissal proceedings and before public authorities during audits of wage-based taxes.
"The exciting thing about my employment law work at PwC Legal is the interaction of several service lines,” said Roberts. “Together with our experts from other PwC Service Lines, such as Tax, People and Organization (Global Mobility, Payroll, HR Technology, etc.), and Consulting, we can offer one-stop-shop solutions for our clients' HR affairs together with our employment law expertise. That clearly sets us apart from our competitors."
According to PwC Legal, Roberts "helps Austrian and international investors establish businesses in Austria, and supports clients with transfers of undertakings, the coordination of cross-border mergers, and due diligence. She also advises on questions of employment law in the context of restructurings, large-scale redundancies, and the development of collective redundancy procedures."
Roberts received her Ph.D. from the University of Vienna.
