A company’s workforce is its most important asset. Managing employees in today's global market is complex, requiring deep knowledge of developing national and local laws as well as, in many cases, multinational legal requirements and cultural factors.

It's about knowing your business and people. Understanding the business sensitivities that surround each matter. Foreseeing and averting complications. Helping clients make informed decisions that minimize workforce risk. And finding solutions that work.

That's why, according to Chambers and Partners, our "combination of technical expertise and interpersonal skills ... builds trust and confidence."
We talk with clients every day in clear and straightforward terms about complicated employment-related issues. Helping to develop and implement best practices in the workplace. Advising and defending companies in litigation or arbitration. Negotiating with unions or works councils. Dealing with executive compensation arrangements. And arranging orderly separations.
