From the foundation …

michels.pmks was founded in 2014 by the five partners Dr. Marcus Michels, Markus Pillok, Dr. Kerrin Schillhorn as well as Dr. Gunther Mävers and Ulrich Kortmann. Dr. Jannis Kamann, now also a partner in the firm, has been part of the team from the beginning.


… about continuous growth

Since then, we have grown steadily. In 2016, Dr. Tilman Isenhardt, another renowned expert in labour and employment law, joined the partnership. In 2018, he was followed by Jens-Peter Jahn, who, as a specialist attorney for medical law, strengthens the health law department with his many years of expertise in contract physician law. As of November 1, 2020, Dr. Matthias Kappus, another high-caliber partner, was recruited for the area of labour and employment law.


… until the opening of our second location in Düsseldorf.

Since January 2021, the firm now also has an office in Düsseldorf. With the renowned partners Dr. Sebastian Maiß, Peter Hützen and Jan Schiller working there, the foundation has been laid for the expansion of michels.pmks in terms of personnel and space. They all have many years of experience in leading labour law and full size law firms and are thus a perfect fit for our partnership-based approach to counseling.
