Practice Areas

Business Restructuring

We assist and advise our clients with small to large-scale restructuring processes, addressing employment issues to minimize the risks and comply with the laws and regulations. We work closely with our clients from the planning to the execution and implementation of reductions-in-force, downsizing/layoffs and other reorganizations and restructurings to help ensure they are implemented effectively. We have strong experience assisting with bargaining obligations with unions, and structuring deals to address union-related issues, many of which could be deal-breaking issues.

Employment Litigation and Trials

We represent every kind of employer, from small to large, in virtually every industry. We provide significant and longstanding experience in defending our clients’ interests in employment Courts, proceedings with authorities and administrative bodies, in major corporate lawsuits as well as individual cases. The substantive law areas commonly covered include wrongful termination, transfer of business, compensation, unfair competition, executive contract and compensation, discrimination, and anti-Union behavior. Our attorneys have the depth, experience and strategic know-how to handle all aspects of employment litigation, including assisting clients to develop strategies both for conducting litigation and preparing for trial.

Labor and Employment Consulting

We provide to management, HR and Legal departments day-to- day assistance on a wide array of employment and human resources matters. Our first goal is to make ourselves available to our clients whenever they require assistance by providing them with prompt, strategic and tailor-made advice. Our vast experience allows us to advise our international clients on their operations in Italy, as well as our domestic clients, on all labor and employment related issues, including drafting employment agreements, compensation and benefit plans, disciplinary actions, individual and collective dismissals, transfer of business, corporate transactions, discrimination, internal policies, privacy issues, among others. Our clients encompass a wide variety of industries such as fashion, food, telecommunications, finance, and logistics.

Labor Management Relations

In a country where labor organizations play a central role in many aspects of the business, we do not just provide legal advice, but we work hand in hand with the management, serving employers as a strong counterpoint to the labor organizations. We assist companies in planning for and conducting successful union negotiations concerning various employment issues including collective bargaining, as well as business restructurings. As business partners, our strategic approach is always aimed at meeting the needs of our clients and their business goals and interests, helping them to deal with complex restructuring procedures, negotiate employment terms and conditions, handle disputes, and minimize the effectiveness of union-driven corporate campaigns. Our lawyers have represented employers across a wide range of industry sectors.
