Clients include both local and foreign companies and employers. We advise these clients on a wide range of labor litigation: disputes between employees and employers, claims for wages, applications for class action lawsuits, restriction and prevention of competition and violation of non-compete clauses, intellectual property and trade secrets, discrimination claims, sexual harassment prevention and the implementation of sexual harassment law, employee options, interpretation of complex bonus clauses, collective disputes due to structural changes or a breach of collective agreements, initial employee unionization, etc.

 

Our firm accompanies clients from the pre-conflict stages, when contacting the employee or when receiving a pre-claim warning letter, and during all types of legal and judicial proceedings.

 

We represent our clients before the Regional and National Labor Court, various government agencies (the Ministries of Labor, Social Affairs and Social Services, and the Interior), and the various entities involved in settlement and dispute resolution, as well as during arbitration and mediation proceedings.
