Our Employment expertise

We advise publicly listed and private companies, financial institutions, executive employees and directors on all aspects of employment law from recruitment and contract negotiation to termination, including related fiscal, compensation, health & safety, pension and social insurance law matters. We also advise on data protection, on the employment issues arising in corporate transactions and in the context of internal investigations. We partner with our clients to find pragmatic, effective solutions which take into account the commercial context in which they operate.

We integrate the expertise of specialists from other practices across the firm, including in particular our Corporate/M&A, Technology, Tax and Dispute Resolution teams, to provide innovative, tailored and effective advice to our clients.
