Managing Your Restructuring

Clients typically rely on our corporate restructuring services if they experience deteriorating performance, have liquidity concerns, or have experienced the loss of key management or customers. In each case, we have the skills to manage international restructuring, whilst also expertly managing relations with trade unions and other labour representatives. We lead corporate boards and all other stakeholders through restructuring plans. These plans include downsizing, outsourcing, moving key functions to other countries and both the acquisition of businesses and their sale.

Applying a Global Strategy

At Ius Laboris, we are at the forefront of all advancements in labour and employment law and can advise businesses on global strategy. For example, we are skilled in managing trade union attempts to develop global strategies through transnational collective agreements. We are also able to manage developing trends in formal representative structures, such as European Works Councils and industrial action in response to restructuring.

Ius Laboris is an authority on redundancies and international framework agreements.  We give employers advice on collective bargaining agreements and represent clients in negotiations with national and regional level unions and staff representatives. We advise on strikes, other industrial action and collective labour relations and how these differ across jurisdictions.
