Employment

Hannes Snellman’s employment practice is at your service to advise on all aspects of employment law providing continuous practical support to your business.

We assist you in cases involving general consultation, manager agreements, terminations of employment, employment policies, pension and benefits, incentive schemes, data protection and privacy legislation matters, health and safety issues, occupational accidents, and contacts with authorities. We provide guidance on management and employment related corporate governance issues.

If you are looking for experienced advice in large restructuring and insolvency processes, extensive change negotiations, or retention arrangements, our team is fully equipped to assist you. In addition, our expertise includes negotiating collective bargaining agreements as well as the consultation process and agreements related to arranging of employee participation in the administration of undertakings also in case of cross-border mergers. We also help you to handle any disputes related to employment law matters, which typically relate to dismissals, redundancies, occupational safety, or criminal matters. The transactional work performed by our employment team includes participation in M&A transactions and outsourcing arrangements as well as in other transactions with specific emphasis on employment law.
