Construction and Public Works

Companies in the construction sector must comply with numerous regulations and face a high risk of litigation, particularly in the areas of labour law, social security law, construction law, property law and criminal law.

Additionally the employees of these companies are faced with specific problems (non-compliance with health and safety rules, co-employer situations, employment contract transfers, etc.) which require special support.
