About Littler Europe

Littler is the largest law practice in the world exclusively devoted to representing management in every aspect of labor and employment law. We serve as a single point of contact for our clients’ global labor and employment needs, helping multinational employers to move their employees across borders, comply with local employee relations laws, and assist employers with such international issues as overseas privacy laws and applying company policies worldwide.

Our European legal services include 19 offices in the region’s most robust economies, housing more than 300 local Littler attorneys who collaborate with our working partners in all European jurisdictions, as well as our attorneys in other regions of the world.

Our U.S.-UK practice is conveniently serviced by licensed practitioners based in the United States and our local team in London, handling complex and high-value local and cross-border employment, LLP and partnership issues and disputes. We provide U.S.- and UK-headquartered companies with advice on contentious and non-contentious matters including supporting transactions, restructuring, data privacy and workplace technology, training, investigations, individual and collective redundancies, TUPE, restrictive covenants, “atypical” workers, working time, holidays, pay, leaves, disabilities.

In Austria, we handle all aspects of Austrian and European employment law from our office in Vienna. Our comprehensive legal services encompass all aspects of labor law, with a particular focus on corporate restructuring, negotiation of social plans, and advising employers in drafting executive contracts. We offer knowledge and experience in both individual and collective labor law.

In Belgium, we serve international clients from our offices in both Mechelen and Brussels, the de facto capital of the European Union. We counsel employers on a wide range of labor and employment matters, including the defense of claims, collective bargaining and advice on Works Council matters, representation before government agencies, audits and training.

In France, 170 attorneys in Paris and Lyon assist clients with individual and collective working relationships, restructuring, remuneration policy, company pension plans and employee savings plans.

In Germany, our five offices in Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Munich cover individual and collective employment law, encompassing restructuring, change management, compliance and corporate social responsibility, and business mediation.

From our base in Milan, we provide legal services to domestic and multinational companies and corporations operating across all industries in Italy. We advise them on all aspects of employment law as it relates to the specific context and operations of their companies. Our services cover the full range of employment law, from litigation to restructuring and reorganizations, transferring of business, remuneration policies, drafting of contracts and restrictive covenants, and more.

From our Amsterdam, Netherlands office, we offer labor and employment law services to Dutch and multinational organizations operating across Europe. We counsel clients on human resources and employment law matters related to transactions, including due diligence, labor relations, negotiations, day-one readiness support and post-merger integration. We also offer strategic employment law counsel related to international and national co-determination law, pension amendments, labor unions, collective bargaining agreements and international relocation of employees.

Our office in Norway is one of the country’s largest employment practices, assisting clients with employment and human resources law, pensions law, GDPR, labor and employment law negotiations and litigation. Our attorneys also advise on commercial and contract law matters, both as legal and strategic advisors. With a strong reputation for client service, they are ranked in both Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners. From their base in Oslo, our Norwegian attorneys coordinate client work throughout the Nordic region, including Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Sweden.

In Poland, our team spans five cities: Warszawa, Katowice, Kraków, Poznań and Wrocław. The team counsels clients on all aspects of employment and labor law, global mobility and immigration, including employment disputes and litigation, trade unions relations and collective bargaining, mobbing and harassment, data protection, social security, employees’ savings plans, social fund and others.

We are recognized in our field in Europe by publications including Chambers & Partners, Legal 500, and The Lawyer.

The Littler Global Guide

We are pleased to present The Littler Global Guide – an online portal providing in-depth information and analysis of a broad range of international employment and labor law issues. Authored by legal practitioners and scholars from around the world, The Littler Global Guide covers workplace law topics in over 40 countries/territories and the European Union, across six continents. This new format for drawing on Littler’s International practice and experience enables readers to drill down into one country’s law or compile a country-to-country comparison on a single topic.
