Thanks to our experience, we are able to offer expert advice on restructuring processes and complex labour reorganisation, such as lay-offs or the reduction of working hours. We hold paramount qualifications to provide our clients with the necessary legal advice on bankruptcy proceedings, the negotiation of redundancy schemes and early retirement.
We examine, analyse and implement agreements between workers and companies. We also propose appropriate structures to generate flexible working conditions and thus optimise the quality and productivity of human resources. We also negotiate special conditions on pension plans and funds, propose the best incentive systems, insurances, functional or geographical mobility options, outsourcing and subcontracting, etc.
Labour law features the coexistence of several special labour relations that coexist alongside the employee or the labourer. We advise and draft contracts for senior management personnel and negotiate amendments to this type of contract and their termination.
