The Federal Association of Legal Advisers for Occupational Retirement Provision and Working Time Accounts (BRBZ) was established in Cologne in April 2008 to focus on the legal debate on the interdisciplinary topics of occupational retirement provision and working time account systems.
Kenston Services Ltd is a supporting member of the BRBZ.
Sebastian Uckermann (Chairman) and Prof. Dr. Achim Schunder are the authorized representatives of the BRBZ‘s Board of Management.
In addition, the board of the BRBZ is supported by a so-called board of trustees. The board of trustees is an independent expert or scientific committee of the BRBZ, which consists of up to 15 persons and advises the executive board on an honorary basis and promotes the interests of the association.
The primary purpose of the association is to safeguard the interests of the profession, which has concentrated exclusively on providing legal advice in all areas of occupational pension provision and working time and working time account models. In addition, the purpose of the association is to promote the broadening of solutions for company pension schemes and working time and working time account models in the Federal Republic of Germany from a legal and management consulting perspective. This also includes focusing on economically sensible solution models for company pension schemes and measures for flexible working hours from the point of view of legal and management consultancy, without focusing on financial product orientation. In addition, the association is involved in the socio-political, labour, insolvency, social, tax and balance sheet law, actuarial, business management as well as investment and insurance law design of the implementation of company pension schemes and working time and working time account models.
This purpose is to be achieved in particular by:
Press- and publicity-effective appearance of the Federal Association in order to increase the awareness level of professional groups providing legal advice as experts in the field of company pension schemes and working time and working time accounts;
Informing and educating companies, associations, the public, ministries, authorities and courts of law Exchange of views and technical advice for legislative bodies, authorities, ministries and associations;
Information and training events as well as representation of opposing positions; participation in lectures;
Regular information of the members and publication of publications or participation in them;
Support of the association members within the scope of questions of professional law (no individual legal advice is given in this context!).
The Federal Association of Legal Advisers for Occupational Pensions and Time Accounts is party- political, trade union and denominationally neutral.
