Our two affiliate firms in China represent the first steps in our expansion in the Far East as clients increasingly seek advice on labour and employment issues in the region. In addition, we have strengthened our existing presence in both Central America and Eastern Europe, which are key areas of operations for many of our multinational clients.”
Herzog Fox Neeman Head of Employment Orly Gerbi added: “We are very pleased to be joining Ius Laboris which is undoubtedly the premier global employment law alliance.
