Every employer is bound to follow rapidly changing requirements imposed by labor legislation. Sound knowledge of the legislation must be upgraded with experiences from business practice and case law.
It is often the case that labour law is intrinsic to other areas of law, such as corporate law (in case of acquisitions/mergers/takeover of companies, discharge of directors and Board members, in case of the winding up or restructuring of a company). By deterring legal risks, we help our clients to find optimal solutions. This is also our primary focus when drafting employment contracts and employers’ internal acts, as well as when solving disputes.
When dealing with individual or collective labour disputes, we rely on the long-term experience of our lawyers gained through court litigation and on their good knowledge of case law. The latter results in high-quality advisory services offered to our clients in the management of various labour procedures and in dealing with employment relations or out-of-court resolution of conflicts, whether involving small start-ups or multinational companies.
