Analysis: This labour boutique, which was established almost 40 years ago, has an impressive headcount. It has developed a strong focus on the contentious side of the practice and in negotiations with unions. The team also handles social security matters, collective agreements and employment benefits. It has invested in technology with a digital-only strategy and has created custom-made software to ensure the flow of information through any project, giving clients a more transparent, accessible and improved service. Multinational retailer Best Buy is an ongoing client; the firm previously helped it shut down its operations in Mexico, which included terminating a range of collective bargaining agreements and terminating staff contracts. Clients here appreciate the personalised services on offer, attention to detail paid by partners and the firm's client-orientated approach.
