Department Information

Overview

Plesner is highly specialised in all aspects of employment and labour law. We primarily advise international and Danish businesses, public authorities and institutions, and executives. Our advice is rendered in close collaboration with experts from our other departments.

In addition to classic employment and labour law issues, we also render advice on more complex and cross-departmental matters, e.g.:

  • Corporate governance and board matters.
  • Employee hiring and dismissal.
  • Employee investigations, including collective redundancies and discrimination claims.
  • Protection of the business from theft or data leaks.
  • Employment aspects of M&As.
  • Strategies for managing employment costs, including redundancies, salary freezes, reduced working hours, pensions, buyouts and shared service centres.
  • Corporate restructuring, post-acquisition integration issues and cross-border mergers.
  • Industrial disputes.
  • The impact of technology on the workplace.
  • Incentive plans.
  • Regulatory pressure on executive pay.
  • Designing, drafting and implementation of plans, such as corporate governance and share plans.
  • Global incentive plans (including instructing local counsels abroad).

Our experience covers largely all sectors including the public sector and the semi-public sector, and we have extensive experience in litigating before all relevant courts and instances.

Vast experience and in-depth specialisation are required in order to stay updated on the increasingly more complex landscape of employment and labour law.
