Employment & Labour Law


Labor law as well as issues arising from employment play a critical part in every aspect of business life. Out firm’s team of employment partners and associates are highly experienced in representing and advising both major corporate and individual clients in a wide range of legal matters of labor law, such as redundancy programs as well as corporate labor policy, helping to protect their interests and preserve their reputation, in view of the sweeping changes in the relevant legislation in Greece over the past years.

Greek employment law is a constantly developing area of law and it is vital for any employer to remain up to date with these changes. Particularly in the shipping sector, the in-depth knowledge of the applicable legislation allows our firm to provide strategic advice on each labor claim that may arise, particularly in shipping companies operating in Greece.

Our firm has also acquired in-depth experience in drafting and negotiating employment contracts and service agreements and advising on flexible employment schemes. Our clients rely on us to assist them in handling delicate separations, as well as voluntary exit schemes and collective redundancies, especially in regards to banking clients, if deemed necessary.

Given that one of the core areas of expertise of the firm is litigation, our firm’s specific strength is representing shipping companies in disputes with managing executives (including claims out of shares and redundancy payments), where the amount of the respective claims is unusually high.
