Global business has raised the importance of employment law on an international level. This week on the legal-affairs podcast Coast to Coast, my cohost J. Craig Williams and I discuss this topic with a global array of guests from the U.S., the U.K., Germany and France. Our guests are Nicholas Connon, partner in the Los Angeles law firm of Connon Wood Scheidemantle; Ramyar Moghadassi, a dual-qualified lawyer specializing in international employment law at the London firm of Moghadassi & Associates; Dr. Gerlind Wisskirchen, partner and specialist in employment and labor law at the German firm CMS Hasche Sigle; and Patrick Thiébart , head of the labor and employment team at Franklin in Paris.
