Labour law and Industrial Relations

Determination and passion to handle complex situations

Labour law as a strategic consultancy to assist companies in dealing with the delicate issues related to the relationship with their employees: incentive plans, reorganizations, staff reductions, social shock absorbers, transfers, contracts, welfare policies and labour litigation.

The long experience gained in the field, working closely with the HR departments of multinational and large structured companies, allows our team to understand in depth the relevant and often hidden issues.

The perfect combination of specialist legal expertise and interpersonal skills has allowed us to build lasting and solid relationships and easily connect with business managers.

We perceive the complexities of the situations and the pressure that company managers are under in dealing with conflicting contexts in which they have to give quick and effective answers.

We assist a modern and sophisticated, structured and international clientele: large Italian and foreign groups, but also small and medium-sized companies, including start-ups, as well as managers and CEOs in the management of their working relationship.
