AKD's Employment & Pensions practice group encompasses a team of committed lawyers boasting comprehensive knowledge and experience. Where necessary, we work together with our colleagues from Tax, Corporate, Privacy and Administrative Law, enabling us to offer you a multidisciplinary solution at all times.

Our employment lawyers advise on and litigate cases involving employment contracts, dismissals, competition, confidentiality, collective labour agreements and employee participation, special employment relationships, transfer of undertaking, equal treatment, secondment, working hours, working conditions, minimum wage and other types of remuneration, holiday and leave, and more.

Our lawyers also assist employees in dismissal procedures. It is important that these procedures run smoothly, that the dismissal is justified, and that it is done under the best possible conditions. Our highly experienced employment lawyers will achieve the best possible result for you, in a way that is sharp, but fair.

We have teams specialising in flexible labour, fraud & compliance, global mobility, industrial relations, pensions, privacy and restructuring.
