Our profile

We are a specialised team of lawyers in the fields of employment law and public service law; our clients are mostly large and medium-sized Dutch and international companies, managing directors and employees in the higher (management) sector.

 

L&A law firm

L&A lawyers is an employment law boutique firm which was founded in 2008. Our lawyers have an excellent track record in the top sector of large Dutch and international law firms. Our lawyers are experienced specialists who cover all aspects of employment law. L&A daily advice and litigation practice consists of: drafting/ reviewing employment contracts and staff handbooks, collective bargaining law, restructuring, individual and collective dismissal cases, transfer of undertaking/in-& outsourcing, flexible labour relations, unfair competition, co-determination (i.e. setting upĀ  a works council and advice how to draft a request for advice), fraud cases, compliance, privacy/GDPR, employee benefits, illness and incapacity for work.

Giving guidance as strategical sparring partners in negotiations with employees, unions or the works council and drafting scripts for complicated interviews with employees in dismissal, fraud or non performance cases is our daily practice.

L&A has a wide international network of (niche) firms both inside and outside the employment law sector which enables us to provide full service when needed.

 

Litigation

Although we prefer speedy and practical solutions, litigation naturally also forms an important part of our legal practice. We have extensive experience in representing clients in all sorts of employment matters and have proven to be very successful litigators.

 

Clients

Our clients are primarily large and medium sized (international) companies from a broad range of sectors, higher management, supervisory boards, professionals (such as medical specialists and lawyers) and works councils. Clients choose L&A for its excellent track record, practical approach and good value for money. We are proud on long standing relationships with our clients who appreciate our 24/7 availability, pro-active guidance and solid solutions.

 

Seminars/Round table sessions

We initiate (free) seminar sessions at the Cobra Museum Amstelveen, (inhouse) workshops about current topics and tailor made training sessions for our clients. Current employment law issues/cases can also be discussed during such training sessions. We offer for example a training in how to deal with underperformance or culpable acts of employees; how to build a proper file under Dutch employment law? Which steps should be taken with ill employees? We provide these workshops in Dutch and in English.
