Assisting companies and banks on employment issues in the context of acquisitions/disposals
We usually assist multinational companies and banks handle complex employment issues in the context of acquisitions/disposals (pre and post-transaction strategies). Employment is always a key point in negotiations and the transfer of employees is subject to special laws in Monaco (TUPE-type regulations).
We also help on more classic employment management with specific Monaco national preference rules on hirings, dismissals and terminations (individual and collective) as well as non-competition clauses, secondments etc.
