Both in a consultancy capacity and in litigation before labour courts, the firm provides daily assistance to a vast number of companies, including many multinationals, in all areas pertaining to labour relations.

In line with recent developments in the Portuguese economy, we have been providing advice to a number of clients involved in personnel rationalisation processes, namely by participating in the non-contentious and contentious phases of collective lay-offs and redundancies. Our close involvement in the labour law aspects of mergers, acquisitions and outsourcings should also be underlined.

Our team has extensive and consolidated experience in the most  important and current areas of labour relations, such as the protection of industrial and intellectual property, the conventions on confidentiality and non-competition, and the models of assistance provision and complementary benefits established by the public system of social security.
