HPP’s employment law practice has in-depth knowledge of all fields of employment law. The employment law practice works as an integral part of our M&A group by providing expertise in employment law in connection with questions relating to national as well as cross-border business restructurings. As to mergers and acquisitions, the expertise and the work of the practice covers for example performing employment law due diligence reviews, advising on questions relating to employment law in connection with transfers of business and other corporate restructurings, for example outsourcings. Furthermore, the employment law team operates in close co-operation with HPP’s other practices, like maritime and transport and insolvency and restructuring.

The employment law practice advises clients also independently in all questions relating to various fields of employment law covering for example employment contracts and director contracts, dismissals, terminating employment and service relationships by mutual agreement, non-competition and non-disclosure agreements, incentives, questions relating to annual leaves and working hours, cooperative negotiations, and data protection issues as well as occupational safety issues.

In employment disputes, we survey with the client preconditions for a settlement in order to secure the client’s best interest and undisturbed business operations. Disputes that cannot be settled are handled by our experienced dispute resolution team either in court or in arbitration tribunal, depending on the subject matter.
