  • Von Wobeser y Sierra has a team of specialists with more than thirty years of experience in labor consulting and litigation both individual and collective.

    We are convinced that preventive measures are better than corrective ones and, therefore, we put special emphasis on the labor compliance of our clients.

    Rodolfo Trampe heads this practice of the firm. The advice the team provides begins with the definition of hiring strategies for officers and employees in general. This includes the creation of incentive plans and compensation packages, as well as the preparation of non-compete, confidentiality and personal data protection agreements of the workers. The counseling covers the entire labor relationship, including the oversight and fulfillment of social security obligations.

    We assist our clients in the implementation and/or modification of benefit plans, compensation packages and general policies, and in the drafting and application of internal work regulations, codes and manuals for employees. We have extensive experience in handling inspections by the labor authorities both federally and locally, and in the follow up on the judicial and administrative processes resulting from those inspections.

    From its creation, our practice has offered full services. We represent our clients in all aspects of labor relations, both individual and collective, including the drafting, negotiation with unions, updating and legitimation of collective bargaining agreements. The advice we provide also includes the termination of employment, with and without cause, and the analysis of the labor implications of the purchase, merger and spin-off of companies.

    Von Wobeser y Sierra helps manage the transfer of personnel and audits the corporate processes, identifying existing or potential risks. Given that the framework of labor legislation benefits the employee in the procedural stage, we have developed a preventive policy whose application generally ensures a series of economic benefits for our clients. We seek, from the first moment, to form a team with them: we work in close coordination with their legal and/or human resources departments to align strategies and prepare an ad hoc personnel management plan to protect the interests of the company. Our team represents clients before the Conciliation and Arbitration boards and the labor courts, both local and federal, in complex processes of labor claims and collective disputes.

    The practice has been recognized by international publishers such as Chambers and Partners Latin America, The Legal 500, Latin Lawyer 250, Latin Lawyer National, and Who’s Who Legal.
