Labor and Employment - Kilpatrick Townsend

Services Labor and Employment

Our labor & employment team provides integrated service and counsel throughout all areas of labor legislation, always seeking pragmatic solutions benefiting our clients’ business goals. Our unique mindset in human resources gives us a distinct edge when advising labor law clients and allows us to align our counsel with our clients’ HR policies and values. With the mobile and digitized labor market on the rise, we also understand the importance of tailoring our advice to proactively protect our clients’ employer branding work.

Our team brings extensive labor and employment experience, including concluding employment contracts and consultancy agreements; managing intangible assets against employees and consultants; designing incentive programs for key personnel; as well as handling business transfers, relocations, collective redundancies, trade unions negotiations, compliance and compliance reviews, and occupational health and safety issues.

We also provide extensive, strategic guidance around labor law disputes, especially in disputes where employees acted unfairly or started competing activities. We routinely handle permit issues under discussion for companies in Sweden that want to hire foreign labor, having successfully represented employers and employees against migration courts in so-called “competence expulsions.” Through our U.S. Desk, we also provide advice to clients considering employing in the United States.
