About us

We are a young, dynamic and informal team dedicated mainly to Labour Law, as well as to Data Protection Law and Intellectual Law related to labour organizations.

We provide advice to employers and workers, either national or foreign, in the various sectors of activity (eg public and private sectors) and in all areas of employment (eg hiring, collective bargaining, economic unit transfers, restructuring and redundancies).

We combine practical experience with theoretical approaches that respond to the answers given by national and foreign courts.

We provide practical, personalized, preventive and non-reactive advice and support our Clients in all litigation cases, either administrative or judicial, in the pre-litigation and litigation phases.

We seek to resolve the issues of our Clients in a clear and efficient manner, with identification of the risks and contingencies of each solution. The Client must have the necessary conditions to make the best decision in the defence of his/her/its interests.

Our work and our organization is guided by three essential values: (i) integrity, (ii) excellence; and (iii) proximity. We build lasting relationships of collaboration with our Clients
