Employment and labour


Our Warsaw employment and labour lawyers advise domestic and global clients on their complex and sensitive employment issues. We provide contentious, transactional and advisory support across a number of key industry sectors.

We work with our global employment and labour group to provide integrated advice, including sensitive severance issues, workplace discrimination, global share plans and international pension arrangements.
