In times of great change, it’s important to have the right strategic partner, to work with you, but also help guide you through the maze.
Clients typically rely on our corporate restructuring services if they experience deteriorating performance, have liquidity concerns, or have experienced the loss of key management or costumers. In each case, our lawyers have the skills to manage international restructuring, whilst also expertly managing relations with trade unions and other labour representatives.
We work with corporate boards and all other stakeholders through restructuring plans that can include downsizing, outsourcing, moving key functions to other countries and the acquisition or sale of businesses.
Our lawyers provide strategic partnership on global strategy to international employers and are skilled negotiators.
We have a depth of expertise on the handling of redundancies and international framework agreements, we negotiate and give advice on collective bargaining agreements and represent clients in negotiations with national and regional level unions and staff representatives.
We advise on strikes, other industrial action and collective labour relations and how these differ across jurisdictions.
In a turbulent world, where some companies are inevitably considering reducing their workforces, it is important to have an overview of the potential costs of making redundancies via a social plan. We have surveyed 25 countries to provide you with the cost details you need to help you plan and budget for this eventuality.
