Your global partner

With market and economic shifts, new technology, globalisation and global mobility, a demand for more flexible workforces and ever-increasing scrutiny of compliance and ethics, the employment and labour challenges for multinationals are greater than ever.

In this context, companies can benefit from joining forces with a competent advisor, who is up to date on statutory and case law in the local jurisdiction where your company operates and who can guide you on how to manage your workforce. Whether in terms of recruitment, drafting of service agreements and employment contracts, non-compete clauses, dismissals or something else entirely, DLA Piper can provide you with a highly-qualified advisor in the field, backed by a strong team.
