Our team was engaged by the global health care company Abbott Laboratories to perform due diligence of human resources in Lithuania
Abbott Laboratories announced its separation into two publicly traded companies in October 2011. One company focused on diversified medical products and the other on research based pharmaceuticals. We were selected to perform a thorough legal due diligence of human resources in Lithuania.

As part of this due diligence, our team advised the client on the transfer of employees which, after adoption of new case-law in February 2012, became more complex.
