Employment Law

Your one-stop shop for employment law

Our employment law team has many years of practical experience and extensive expertise. We advise employers and executives on all issues of private and public employment law, including where such issues intersect with social security and work permits.

In particular, we provide client support in drafting and amending employment contracts and regulations, terminating employment, preparing severance agreements, international staff deployments, and employment disputes. We also provide assistance with mass redundancies and redundancy packages and advise on employment law issues relating to company acquisitions and reorganisation. We represent our clients in court and in dealings with the authorities on all employment-related matters.

Sound, workable solutions

We focus on our clients' individual needs, with the aim of finding real-world solutions. Our team of highly experienced experts, which includes a Certified Specialist SBA in employment law, will provide efficient and goal-oriented advice. Our specialists are actively involved in decision-making as board members of operating companies and hold, or have held, positions as judges on employment tribunals as well as cantonal administrative courts. Our experts therefore combine employment law expertise with commercial acumen.
