Our specializations explained
Due to the increase in laws and regulations, it is very important that companies stay informed regarding the latest developments in the field of Corporate Law. To minimize risks, for example, it is important that contracts are clear and carefully drafted, both for suppliers and customers, but for their employees too.
Our experienced attorneys can advise you about contractual matters of various kinds. They can help you, for example, with the development, improvement or completion of a distribution contract, an agency contract, a framework agreement, a franchise agreement, a commercial agreement, an assignment contract or a management contract.
We can also help you with the drafting and/or evaluation of the general terms and conditions or other types of contracts. We often see that people work with standard contracts that they have found on the Internet. In order for these contracts to fully meet the needs of the company, we can review and adjust them where necessary.
If you have a dispute about, for example, the interpretation of a contract, we will also be happy to assist you.
In addition to the many Company Law contracts, our Labour Law attorneys can help you with many other contracts that your company may need in order to carry out good management. They can assist you in the following:
- Preparation and/or evaluation of employment contracts in Spain and/or the Netherlands
- Immediate dismissals
- Collective dismissals
- Dismissals for economic reasons
If you have a case related to Labour Law in Spain, such as the drafting or verification of an employment contract, or a dismissal, you can contact our lawyers specialized in Labour Law at OTIS Advocaten. They can advise you optimally thanks to their knowledge of Dutch and Spanish Labour Law.
If you, as an employer, carry out activities in Spain and are going to draft an employment contract in accordance with Spanish law, you should bear in mind that Spanish Labour Law differs considerably from Dutch Labour Law in several aspects. In addition to Spanish Labour Law, a collective agreement that deviates from the law at different points almost always applies. Taking into account the Spanish system, we can draw up an employment contract for you in accordance with Spanish law, and, if you wish, we can take into account working conditions as you apply them in the Netherlands. This way, there may be a certain degree of harmonization regarding working conditions. We can also manage your payroll administration.
If you, as an employee, are about to sign an employment contract under Spanish law, we can verify the employment contract and advise you on it. It is important that you have a good understanding of what you are signing and what type of employment relationship you are establishing with your future employer.
