Ellex advises on a wide range of employment issues and is well prepared to help our clients meet  the challenges of today’s global workforce. The team is highly adept at providing a broad spectrum of employment services to corporate clients, including representation in employment disputes and in the supervisory state institutions. We take our clients through the maze of administrative regulations, local legislation and EU policies with respect to relocating employees and their families. Our experts can advise on immigration requirements, employment regulation, tax and other related matters.

We mainly specialize in advising big international corporations in M&A and restructuring cases regarding employment matters. We assist clients by performing employment due diligence in the acquisition process and providing legal advice in relation to post-transaction employment issues (including restructuring, termination, internal policies).

Ellex is the only firm on the market, whose team leader is the main author of the Estonian Employment Contracts Act and Commercial Code – both are the main laws that regulate the field.
