Employment Law

Hand in hand

Employment law imposes a host of duties on your legal counsels and HR managers, and likewise raises a host of questions. Employment law aspects also become relevant in connection with reorganisations or with international deployment of employees. It is good to rely on seasoned experts in this area.

The lawyers in our legal services department are specialised in employment law. The many years they have spent consulting companies in all sectors, in a domestic and international context, have allowed us to gain comprehensive experience, which we are pleased to use to your benefit. In addition, through us you are able to access an extensive network of experts both within Switzerland and abroad. In this way, we are able to advise you holistically, including on closely-related issues such as social security, tax or other legal systems.
