Every business encounters employment issues.
Often these require creative solutions that work for both the employer and the employee. Many years of experience in advising on such matters means we understand and are familiar with employee issues and know how to resolve them.
Our clients range from start-ups to global listed companies and we provide practical advice which reflects their particular business and needs. Much of our advice relates to senior executives, including service contract negotiation, executive remuneration, benefits and restrictive covenants. We also advise on workforce management.
Our employment work includes post-M&A integration and we regularly advise clients on matters such as workforce management and employee incentivisation, in order to retain key staff and realise the value of an investment. This can include updating terms of employment, implementing employee share schemes, bonus schemes or reviewing benefits. In other situations, such as where a workforce needs restructuring, we can advise on how best to do this.
Employment law is continually developing and overlaps with other fast-moving areas of law such as data protection (including employee monitoring and investigations) or determining someone’s legal status as an employee, contractor or agent. When advising on such matters we ensure businesses understand their employee obligations and work to find practical and proportionate compliance solutions.
