Employment issues and employment law play a critical part in every aspect of business life. Our team of employment specialists supports major Greek and multi-national employers in addressing a wide range of matters, helping to protect their interests and preserve their reputation in this fast-changing area of law.
From effective day-to-day operations and profitability to influencing the structure, cost and outcomes of major corporate transactions, issues around employment law are important and often highly technical, requiring expertise in both Greek and EU law.
Our employment practice has extensive experience in dealing with all aspects of the employment relationship, from recruitment and termination – including redundancy – to benefits and the implementation of new workplace technologies and working practices.
More than any other specialism, Employment intersects with other areas of law. Our professionals work closely with colleagues in other departments to ensure that clients understand the employment implications of their strategies and activities, and support them in maintaining compliance as their businesses grow and change. And, when there are disputes, we provide expert representation to achieve the best-possible outcomes.
