Public service/state-owned companiesThe state-owned companies category includes entities which may have a number of different legal forms (public industrial and commercial companies (EPIC), limited companies of which the share capital is partly state-owned, semi-public companies, etc.).
The rules that apply to their employees vary even more. Depending on the case, their staff members may be civil servants, have specific employment status, or be governed, entirely or essentially, by private employment law and collective bargaining agreements. The State-Owned Companies practice has been set up to deal with all these issues, which often involve a mix of administrative and private law. The practice is run by two partners with a high level of experience in this field.
