    The employment team specializes in providing both companies and private clients with the necessary guidance to act legally in the workplace. Having some multinational companies as clients, the employment team is fully prepared and qualified to provide legal assistance both to foreign companies based in Portugal or abroad and to Portuguese companies as well.

    The Employment team deals with several day-to-day issues occurring in the workplace often on a retainer basis covering legal opinions, drafting employment contracts as well as other internal communications.

    We are also often appointed by clients to conduct disciplinary proceedings, to represent them in negotiations for termination of employment contracts as well as to file redundancy procedures (individual and/or collective).

    Due to the vast experience of the firm with major clients the employment team has also been involved in due diligences covering the legal aspects of employment on a transfer of business.

    Legal representation in Employment Tribunals is also provided whenever required as well as legal advice both in Portuguese and EU regulations on employment matters.
