Employment Law

Our Employment Law practice covers employment law in the widest sense of the word. We stay up-to-date in this very dynamic field of law full of frequent legislation changes and aim to provide the clients with legal advice to achieve correct and stable workforce management strategies and employment policies in line with the respective laws.

As part of this practice area we offer our “Expatriate Immigration & Visa program“ under which we provide extensive advice and assistance on immigration requirements for the employment of expatriate executives, managers and staff. This includes obtaining the appropriate permits and visas, personal accreditation cards and co-ordination of work status with immigration issues.

  • employment and executive employment contracts, and other contracts and arrangements regulating the relations between employers and employees
  • transfers and mobility of employees
  • work rules, employee handbooks and other internal rules
  • employee remuneration policies and schemes (profit-sharing, bonuses and other incentives)
  • dismissals, layoffs, downsizing, plant closures and mass layoffs
  • employment disputes and litigation
