Employment law can be complex, confusing, and in our ever changing, tech-driven world, is constantly evolving. We work with organisations and individuals to cut through the jargon and navigate the legal risks and opportunities on both a domestic and international level.

Our team of employment experts’ partner with you to manage risk effectively, implement change and capitalise on key business opportunities by providing unrivalled, commercially-focused, sector-specific advice.

We have specialists who focus on equal opportunities, pay and discrimination issues, meaning we’re well equipped to handle litigation when situations arise. Our expert advice on non-contentious in-house matters is geared towards helping you avoid court action in the future.

When you choose us as your employment advisors, you can expect active partner involvement, clear communication, and a keen focus on your individual commercial objectives. We understand the need for long-term, sustainable strategies for your business, not simply isolated answers to specific legal questions.

We can help you draft standard policy documents, including disciplinary and grievance procedures, consultancy agreements, written terms of employment and employee handbooks. With a world-class disputes practice, we also provide advice on dismissals, and can assist you in handling industrial relations, collective issues and “group action” employment claims.

Our expertise helps protect your business from restrictive covenants, and we’re on hand to help you seek court remedies such as injunctions. With a one-firm, international approach, we understand the legal situation wherever your business operates, and we have extensive experience handling employee claims in high courts across the world.
