Labour law

From creating an employment contract to representing clients in labour court proceedings: LGP ensures a balanced work relationship.

Labour law

There's no doubt: the world of work reflects our society and is naturally subject to the social changes within society. In this area of tension between new forms of employment and employee participation, the aim is to strike a balance between contradictory trends and an imbalance between employees and employers.

Thanks to our experience in representing both employees and employers, we know and understand the different perspectives, typical problems and arguments. As advisors specialised in labour law, we demonstrate this experience particularly when negotiation skills are required in conflicts.
We advise and represent our clients in all matters pertaining to labour law: from the creation of an employment contract to due diligence checks, to out-of-court settlements and legal representation in disputes. The international orientation of our law firm makes us a competent partner in issues relating to the expansion of the EU to the east and the free movement of workers.

We advise national and international clients:

  • Employees and employers
  • Companies and groups
  • Research institutes
  • Public companies
