Our labor practice offers clients standalone advice as well as advice related to other areas of their activity, such as mergers and acquisitions.
As Colombia’s employment landscape evolves, the firm has expanded its portfolio of services in the labor practice, which now includes immigration issues (such as the obtention of business/work visas) to ensure that international clients comply with both Colombian immigration and labor legislation, even before the contractual relationship begins.
The practice still remains highly active working on the more traditional elements of labor law. This includes a number of obligatory protocols, such as contractual processes, formalization of employment, ensuring the completion of labor duties, and assistance in litigation such as labor proceedings and in responding to and handling of constitutional actions for the protection of fundamental rights (acción de tutela) filed by employees.
We have expertise in reviewing documentation for foreign companies entering and operating in Colombia and in employment law-related due diligence processes in the context of M&A transactions.
