We recognise how important it is for you to keep up to speed with the latest legal developments, but also understand how challenging and time-consuming that can be.

That's why we created 'Frontline', a free monthly employment law newsletter that delivers the latest expertise and analysis from Bird & Bird's International HR Services group straight to your inbox.

Containing hot-topic features, snapshot case summaries, bite-size legal updates, take-away guides and exclusive Bird & Bird news, Frontline is packed with the latest industry insight, knowhow and practical advice, helping HR professionals and in-house counsel keep on top of the rapidly evolving fields of employment law, global mobility and people management.

In addition to content drafted by our dedicated team of employment law experts, Frontline also features industry expertise and content from Corporate Research Forum, a Bird & Bird partner, as well as guest-contributions from some of Bird & Bird's top-ranking departments on wider issues relevant to the HR community, such as the General Data Protection Regulation.

Frontline is currently live as a monthly newsletter in China, the Nordics and the UK, and as an Asia-Pacific quarterly update. To sign up and find out more, including viewing the latest content, please see below.
