Employment and Benefits


Global Employment

Understanding employment obligations and recruiting, retaining and managing the right people, has never been more critical. Our clients come to us for strategic advice, including on board-level and risk management issues, as well as for day-to-day employment and HR-related support.  

With over 110 employment lawyers in 26 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and the U.S., we work in partnership with clients to develop creative solutions to their workplace issues. We advise on all types of employment matters – local and cross-border, advisory and transactional, contentious and non-contentious and regulatory – and on all aspects of employment relations, industrial relations, relationship breakdowns and dispute resolution. You can read more about our local practices using the links on this page.

We are at the forefront of industry debate and market practice and supplement our expertise with critical sector knowledge, to find the right solution. We also pride ourselves on being market leaders in the use of technology to provide clients with products that deconstruct the complicated legal and regulatory hurdles across the globe, and then reconstruct them into simple and manageable reference toolkits.
