Roschier’s Employment & Benefits practice is recognized for its ”dual capacity,” meaning its ability to provide first-class stand-alone legal advice on the entire range of specific employment law matters and to work as an integrated part of Roschier’s transaction team. While labor law issues may sometimes be seen as an obstacle, we recognize their importance in view of the most valuable asset in many companies – the employees.

“The lawyers are very responsive and really think outside the box to provide good and quick solutions. They go the extra mile.”
– Chambers Europe (Employment)
