Expertise Practice Areas

At Morais Leitão we regularly provide advice to a large number of companies, including multinationals, startups and SMEs, in all areas pertaining to labour relations, both in a consultancy capacity and in litigation before labor courts.

In line with recent developments in the Portuguese economy, we have been providing advice to multiple clients in operations related to the transfer of undertakings and establishments, mainly through mergers, acquisitions and outsourcing.

It is equally important to note our close involvement in restructuring processes, namely by participating in the non-contentious and contentious phases of collective lay-offs and redundancies.

Our team has extensive and consolidated experience in the most  important and current areas of labour relations, such as the protection of industrial and intellectual property, the conventions on confidentiality and non-competition, and the models of assistance provision and complementary benefits established by the public system of social security.
