Practice Focus

Sabrina focuses on employment-related advisory work. She covers the full life-cycle of the employment relationship, from hiring to termination, including the drafting of complex contracts, the negotiation of senior employee exits and the assistance in the context of investigations around conduct issues, notably harassment.

Sabrina routinely advises clients on employment matters relating to reorganizations and restructurings, including negotiations of collective dismissals with staff representatives and unions, in all sectors including industry and financial services. Sabrina is particularly recognised for her ability to deliver strategic advice combining both commercial and technical capabilities and manage the fine line between shareholder expectations, local culture and practices and local management's own expectations.

Recently, she successfully handled a high profile and very visible matter concerning a job reduction programme affecting 160 employees, leading negotiations with government representatives (including Ministers) and unions as well as press management, with a positive negotiation outcome in a particularly tense context.

Additionally, she has a broad experience in all contemporary employment law and HR topics, including diversity and inclusion, remote working, employee mobility and relocation, staff sharing arrangements as well as office build-ups. Sabrina also focuses in personnel questions in the regulated environment and is in particular a renowned professional in remuneration policies in the financial sector. She regularly assists banks, management companies, other financial players, insurance and listed companies in the design and drafting of remuneration policies, incentive plans, recruitment, retention and termination packages as well as in relation to regulatory audits.
