Labour law

ECOVIS ProventusLaw assists with various issues ranging from drafting contracts and employing foreigners to managing complex situations of unfair competition or resolving disputes. Our experts have gained considerable experience in terminating agreements with executives and in developing strategies for limiting the powers of executives in order to ensure maximum protection of shareholders’ interests, as well as in developing executive incentive and motivation schemes.

Where required and in particular where labour law issues span multiple jurisdictions, we are assisted by our partners from the ECOVIS network operating in over 60 countries worldwide.
