Employment firm network Ius Laboris has appointed Claeys & Engels senior partner Chris Engels as its new chairman.
Engels replaces Franco Toffoletto of Italian firm Toffoletto de Luca Tamajo in the role and will have a term of office lasting for two years. Toffoletto has served two two-year terms.
Both firms were founding members of Ius Laboris, which was set up in 2001 to focus on employment law. Since its establishment the alliance has added firms across the world and now has members in 41 countries including a number of full-service outfits as well as employment boutiques.
Late last year it emerged that US member Littler Mendelson was leaving the group (11 October 2012).
Engels said he would focus on developing the alliance’s brand and expanding its footprint to places where labour law was developing rapidly.
