Det kræver erfaring og dyb specialisering at holde sig opdateret om det stadigt mere komplekse ansættelses- og arbejdsretlige landskab. Gennem de seneste 20 år har vi udviklet vores rådgivning til løbende at kunne matche vores klienters nye behov.
Udover de klassiske ansættelses- og arbejdsretlige sager rådgiver vi bl.a. om de ansættelsesretlige aspekter ved opkøb og fusioner på tværs af landegrænser, omstruktureringer, interne undersøgelser, fleksible ansættelsesforhold, masseafskedigelser, direktionens vilkår, herunder incitamentsordninger, diskriminationssager, overenskomstindgåelse og overenskomstfortolkning, og andre kollektive arbejdsretlige spørgsmål.
Vi rådgiver internationale og danske virksomheder, offentlige myndigheder og institutioner samt direktører. Vi går ofte i retten i ansættelses- og arbejdsretlige sager.
For altid at kunne levere den bedst mulige løsning til klienten yder vi rådgivning i tæt samarbejde med vores specialister inden for bl.a. persondata, skat, M&A, TMT og insolvens.
Vores klienter fremhæver især vores evne til at sætte os i deres sted og finde løsninger, der skaber værdi for dem. Vi stræber efter at levere skræddersyede løsninger, hvor vi inddrager kommercielle, personalepolitiske og menneskelige aspekter. Vi leverer både løsningen på et problem og implementerer løsningen sammen med klienterne.
Vores erfaring spænder bredt over stort set alle brancher, og vi har også lang erfaring med at rådgive klienter i den offentlige og halvoffentlige sektor - og med at føre retssager ved alle relevante instanser.
Vi udvider løbende vores kompetencer. Outsourcing, herunder outsourcing af service- og it-ydelser, er et eksempel på et område, hvor vi har rådgivet adskillige klienter og opbygget værdifuld erfaring.
