We offer expert advice and assistance in all stages of employment relationships – from workforce planning, recruitment, and drafting employment contracts to contract termination and labour disputes. We also have extensive experience regarding cross-border employment relationships.
In addition to employment contract parties, we also advise management and supervisory board members in their relationship with the company and assist with drafting and negotiating board member service agreements.
