We havegained vast experience in providing strategic advice to and handling litigation for public sector enterprises, partially publicly-owned public service providers and foundations, as well as organizations operating in the healthcare sector. Thanks to our legal expertise and detailed knowledge of the various sectors, over the years we have handled litigation concerning a number of labour law aspects and issues.
Our in-depth expertise also helps us to resolve issues typical of pharmaceutical companies and assist them on a continuous basis on matters pertaining to labour law and industry regulations.
Ensuring that policies and regulations are adopted in the right way
Companies partially owned by public authorities, including what are known as “in-house” companies, have been affected by important reforms that have also concerned the arrangements in place with their employees, providing for limits on the number of people hired and requiring the adoption of accountability procedures. We assist major public companies and authorities not only in analysing and putting in place in-house regulations that are compliant with the law and drawing up the right kinds of contract, but also in handling the litigation typical of that sector.
Ensuring that the rules on contracts and compensation are interpreted correctly
We assist public authorities and foundations (health protection agencies, local health authorities, medical research hospital foundations) operating in the healthcare sector and primarily handle litigation concerning legal aspects that are peculiar to employment in that sector. More specifically, in addition to dealing with appeals against dismissals and disciplinary measures, we have assisted such organizations in delicate cases, including collective actions, concerning claims of misconstruction of contractual provisions on compensation and leave of absence for staff at risk of exposure to radiation, appointment to and revocation of executive positions, incompatible out-house positions under the legislation in force and career advancement procedures.
