Top Ranked Global Chambers

Europe is home to some of the world’s most advanced economies and complex employment laws. Unprecedented labor mobility and a shared regulatory framework mean that companies operating in the European Union (EU) must be prepared to navigate the laws of its 28 member countries, as well as a unique supranational legal system. ELA’s legal leaders assist multi-national clients in the EU, as well as in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) of the former Soviet Union, to identify efficient and cost-effective legal and business solutions to make local laws work for them.
