In the first phase of establishing of a new employment relationship, I conduct contractual negotiations, providing our clients with the relevant employment contracts and sharing expertise relating to the protection of their businesses through non-compete, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements. I provide our clients with day-to-day assistance on all employment related matters: smart-working agreements, changes of role, duties and tasks, implementation of disciplinary proceedings, drafting of company-level agreements and policies. I also manage issues relating to autonomous workers and consultancy agreements. In regard to the termination of an employment relationship, I handle the dismissal process, the consequent negotiation with the counterpart, the drafting of the separation agreements and managing any possible meetings in front of the Labor Office. I regularly cooperate with different practices, working with our corporate colleagues during M&A transactions or re-organisation, both on the preliminary due diligence exercise and on all the employment issues that arise from the transaction itself. I have also been part of Bird & Bird's immigration group since 2018 and have participated in several multi-jurisdictional programmes, providing legal advice both to Italian and international clients.
