Employment

Employment law in Belgium is extremely technical and complicated. ALTIUS’ employment team helps our clients navigate through these complex labour and employment laws, offering integrated solutions for a wide range of day-to-day employment-related concerns, as well as for transactional and restructuring work.

We seek - by listening to you - to understand your business and the market in which you operate. This approach enables us to provide advice in a manner that is both practical and relevant for your business. We help our clients make appropriate, strategic choices in often challenging circumstances. Deep sensitivity and care are key for us.

While our first objective is to help you anticipate - and prevent  - legal risks, we also have extensive labour and employment-related litigation experience.

We function as a fully-integrated law firm because we believe that this structure benefits our clients. The co-operation with the benefits & compensations team of the tax firm, Tiberghien, facilitates an integrated approach to HR matters and offers our clients a clear competitive advantage.
