In many cases, labour and employment law issues cannot be assessed only from a labour and employment law perspective
As regards pensions – and in tandem with the growth of labour market pension schemes, the growth of corporate pension schemes and not least the increased focus on pension promises in general – the need for our advice has increased and we have seen a significant increase in the number of clients turning to us for advice or representation in court.
We advise on matters relating to pension funds, pension cover, interpretation of pension promises and pension schemes, including labour market pension schemes. We also advise on pension issues in the context of dismissals, expatriation and repatriation as well as in connection with changes – and especially on tax-related pension issues.
