Labor Law

Our priority is the welfare of our clients’ businesses; as such, labor law cannot be ignored and is perhaps one of the most important areas of a company.

The applicable laws and regulations among employee-employer relationships are in constant transformation thus can become confusing. The risk of not having a full understanding of them and of the employee’s rights may cause the company serious problems.

Our experts know how to guide you in employment matters in corporate transactions such as M&A due diligence, or day-to-day concerns in corporate governing and legal matters related to employees, directors or contractors.

For the benefit of our clients, we understand how effective communication with the employees must be and the importance of a rapid and practical advisory in these types of situations.

We have a solid reputation guaranteeing that when a contentious stage is reached, we can assist in all matters related to employment litigation, including dispute resolution. We know how to handle complex contentious work.
