Employment is a fluid and fast-changing area of law.
Understanding your obligations as an employer and recruiting, retaining and managing the right people, has never been more critical. Our clients come to us to help them manage their risks and provide strategic, board-level advice on crucial employment-related issues, as well as day-to-day support.
Many of our clients are heavily invested in globalisation and continue to expand their international platform. This means that workplace issues have multiple dimensions: at strategic level, at cross-border level and a local dimension on the ground. 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 individual, sophisticated and creative solutions to modern workplace issues.
We advise on the full range of employment and benefits issues, local and global, advisory and transactional, and contentious and non-contentious. This includes advising on issues from working conditions, labour risk prevention, employee relations, HR policies and privacy, to restructuring, relationship breakdowns and dispute resolution. We're decisive. We recognise your commercial needs.
We are at the forefront of industry debate and market practice and supplement our expertise with critical sector knowledge, to find the right solution. Our team also pride themselves 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.
