Our employment team helps clients to steer through the sophisticated landscape of local laws that govern the employer/employee relationship. We advise and assist in managing employment issues that affect the operation, efficiency and productivity of our clients’ businesses.

We advise both multinational companies and employees on various employment issues including but not limited to: drafting and reviewing of bilingual individual and collective employment contracts, transfer of employees, health and safety standards, HR policies, disciplinary policies, social insurance, trade unions, strikes, redundancy, non-competition, compensation for work injuries, settlement agreements and termination.

We are also frequently involved in employment counselling and litigation, complex employment and employee benefits litigation, LMRA matters, as well as complicated employee benefits matters.

We represent clients before courts, in arbitration, and before administrative agencies and other forums. We also assist clients in avoiding litigation, including counselling on every aspect of employment law.

The team has a track record of acting at the highest level for both organisations and senior executives, which puts us in a strong position when it comes to advising clients. In fact, with each new case we add to our deep understanding of the tactics deployed by both sides. Understanding an issue from your opponent’s point of view, knowing where they stand and how they are thinking, is a priceless asset for every one of our new clients.

Our work covers the full spectrum of contentious and non-contentious employment law and we work seamlessly with our dedicated incentives and business immigration teams. Acting at the forefront of employment law, we are regularly instructed on cases that raise the most important legal questions of the day, and we are recognised for our strategic approach and litigation expertise.
