Employment & Pensions

International

For your business to be successful, you must manage your employees and their benefits as well as your employee representatives such as works councils and unions. Yet, from executive contracts and equal opportunities to restructurings, transfer of business issues and restrictive covenants, employment and pension law in Asia, Europe and Latin America is complex and, at times, contradictory. European directives, court decisions, national laws, local cases and precedent must all be taken into account by your management team. Our group of over 400 sector specialists can help you navigate the maze of HR regulations, policy documents and other legal complexities you must contend with on a daily basis.

If your business crosses borders, you will be faced with additional legal hurdles before achieving the outcome you need. With a network covering 41 countries, we can help solve your problems across all the jurisdictions in which you operate. Whether your issue relates to employment contracts, pension schemes, redundancies, M&A, trade union / staff representative relations, new forms of employment or litigation, our experts can assist you.
