Choosing the right person to advise you on legal matters and represent you on your labour issues is really important. The outcome of your case may well hinge on this person's knowledge and experience, and on how well-informed they are about the ever-changing framework of labour law. This is the basic reason why you need a team of lawyers on your side, who are fully acquainted with and experienced in labour legislation, and who are fully aware of the demands and their responsibilities.

We make it our business that you will understand each procedure and legal term, such as suspension of employment contract, rotational employment,safe operation personnel, teleworking, remote working, withholding labour, wages in arrears, amending termination of contract, abusive exercise of rights, transfer of company, mass redundancies. Our labour law specialists ensure that you are informed of your rights, the claims that you are entitled to make, and point out all those actions required for your legal protection. We believe in functional employment relations and in the lawful protection of both the company and its employees. For this reason, our basic task is to provide you with full notification of the legal framework which concerns you.
