Department profile submitted by Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (Russia) LLP
We advise clients on any labour law issues that might arise in their daily business, perform due diligence of the company’s employment paperwork in order to identify and minimise potential risks, make recommendations for optimal application of the labour legislation rules considering the client’s specific sphere of business, and provide support for major comprehensive projects.
HR management is a very subtle sphere of activity: labour law issues often intersect with such areas as protection of intellectual property, confidential information, liability of company executives/employers, etc. By representing the interests of employers in their striving for maximum efficiency, including in resolving HR issues, we help our clients achieve this in a competent and effective manner from the legal point of view.
Our many years of experience advising and acting for major foreign investors, multinational corporations and big Russian employers on all labour matters mean that individual members of the group can specialise in the particular aspects of labour law most in demand: pension legislation, relations with trades unions, outstaffing and immigration legislation. Such specialisation results in services of unsurpassed quality and the most effective support for our clients.
