A trusted partner with an integrated approach
Our Employment & Benefits Team advises on the full spectrum of complex employment issues including litigation and dispute resolution, (European) works councils and unions and the employment aspects of corporate transactions. We advise and represent companies in respect of (collective) dismissals, reorganizations, national and European co-determination, Collective Labor Agreements (CAOs), flexible and temporary employment relationships, drafting and negotiating employment contracts, agency and contractor arrangements, secondment, corporate governance and boardroom and senior executive issues.
Cost effective, hands-on and experienced
Through an open-minded and analytical approach, our Employment Team works in close partnership with its clients at board and management level to help with employment and co-determination related matters. Our experience enables us to act quickly and analyze problems in response to recent case law and developments.
We provide expert advice relating to employment aspects of mergers, acquisitions, outsourcings, relocations and restructurings, with extensive experience in the management of multi-jurisdictional projects. We also have extensive experience in contentious matters covering all forms of dispute resolution in the context of employment law, including litigation in individual dismissal cases and protection of restrictive covenants, such as non-competition clauses.
As matters of strategic employment law involve legal aspects outside traditional employment law, we regularly work in close partnership with our regulatory, tax, corporate, corporate governance and civil notary specialists.
Our Employment Team advises both domestic and international corporate clients and multinationals, as well as individual directors and executives.
