Dr. Susanne Jochheim
Susanne advises companies and management in the area of compliance and in individual and collective employment law. This includes both advising company directors and compliance departments in order to avoid liability cases, as well as the appraisal of specific compliance violations in a business. Her advice is rigorously tailored to the specific needs of the client. In this regard, the size of the company and the industry play a decisive role.
Susanne develops codes of conduct and specializes in the formulation and implementation of compliance policies and the necessary negotiations with employee representatives. One focus of her activities is compliance training within the company. Clients also assign compliance functions to Susanne, e.g. as an ombudsman, in order to avoid the construction of internal structures.
