Employment issues and restructuring your business

Filed under : Commercial Law, Employment & Labour Law - Spain

Now that shops, hotels, restaurants and companies are opening up a restructuring of your business may be necessary. Understanding Employment law is more important than ever to ensure that you can continue to manage your business, whether this is a hotel, a shop, a gym, restaurant or a busy bar. If you are not able to continue with the same number of employees you will need legal advice to avoid potentially costly unfair dismissal claims. We always advise clients that a negotiated settlement can ultimately save money and improve the chances of your business recovering and operating well into the future.

At De Cotta Law we have an Employment Law specialist who has successfully negotiated with employees, either before any dispute arises, or in the employment courts if it is required. If you receive notice of a claim we firstly advise on the merits of the case and then seek to find a tailored solution for you and your business. A detailed understanding of the laws and regulations as well as a broad commercial approach can help you. We provide you with an explanation and advice in your own language.

You may also need advice on share ownership within your company, the powers and obligations of Directors – Administradores – taxation issues, Contracts of employment and Contracts for Professional Services and other commercial matters such as Debt recovery, franchising and drafting of commercial contracts including purchase, sale and rental of commercial premises.

We have specialist lawyers who can answer your questions on all these issues and advise you. We would be pleased to discuss your business and provide a fixed fee quote or work at an hourly rate so you can control your legal costs.

I work closely with Javier Florido, our senior Spanish partner, who has many years experience in Employment law and we also have a busy litigation department working in Debt recovery and Commercial law with our Spanish abogados Reyes Gomez and Francisco Martín.
