Europe & Asia Benefits

Jones Day's benefits capabilities extend throughout the Firm's global network of offices.

In Europe, our lawyers advise on all aspects of benefits law and our integrated approach ensures the coordinated delivery of local knowledge. Clients receive comparative and strategic advice when necessary and our analysis addresses international issues informing their concerns.

Our team advises on issues with Europe-wide implications, such as compliance with EU law and the effect of wide ranging directives and rulings on such diverse topics as discrimination, the Pensions Directive, and filing requirements.  We also give skilled attention to country-specific issues relating to design, management, and termination of employee benefit arrangements.

We also have extensive experience advising on benefits and compensation issues in countries throughout the Asia Pacific region, including Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. We draft and advise on cash and stock-based compensation programs, retirement plans, employment and severance agreements, work rules, and reductions-in-force.
