The PLG Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Mutual Interest Group recognises that the development of effective dispute resolution procedures and prevention techniques is vital to creating a framework within which businesses can continue to expand both nationally and internationally.

The PLG Employment Law Mutual Interest Group allows PLG lawyers to discuss the various aspects of Employment Law on an international level. The business world, which increasingly needs its workforce to be internationally mobile, the consultation work and the definition of strategies within the framework of negotiations and trials entrusted to PLG, requires the conception of harmonised solutions that take into account practical realities within a legal framework. In these situations, it is vital to ensure that an overall strategy is in place, with the constant emphasis on using the best tools available to advise on national and international employment law.
