Dutch firm Palthe Oberman has become the seventh firm to join employment network L&E Global.
The announcement comes four months after the formation of the network by six labour-focused law firms from Europe and the US.
Palthe Oberman is a nine-lawyer firm based in Amsterdam. Founded in 2001, it provides employment advice across a range of industry sectors.
The firm joins France’s Flichy Grangé Avocats, US practice Jackson Lewis, Italy’s Lablaw (Studio Legale Failla Rotondi & Partners), Pusch Wahlig Legal in Germany, Spanish firm Bufete Suárez de Vivero and Belgium’s Van Olmen Wynant in the alliance.
At its launch in January (24 January 2011), executive director Stephan Swinkels said the alliance was looking to add more boutique employment firms in coming months.
