Employment & Pensions Lawyers

For your business to be successful, the relationship with your employees as well as your employee representatives such as works councils and unions is crucial. Employment and pension law in Europe is complex and, at times, contradictory, whether you are dealing with salary packages, employment contracts, equal opportunities and restrictive covenants or restructurings and mergers and acquisitions.

European directives, European court decisions, national laws, local cases and precedent must all be taken into account by your management team.

Our 280-strong group of sector specialists in Employment & Pensions law in Europe and beyond can help you navigate the maze of HR regulations, their practical application 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 global network covering 33 countries, we can help solve your problems across all the jurisdictions in which you operate or plan to operate - whether your issue relates to employment contracts, pension schemes, redundancies, M&A, collective labour law, social security or litigation.
