Employment law is intrinsic to all organisations and affects every working member of the public. Navigating the minefield of employment law carries with it greater risk than ever and necessitates the use of increasingly complex strategies. The employment arena today is a far more litigious environment, with stakes becoming higher and litigation fuelled by the perceived pot of gold at the end of the employment tribunal.
As a result, effective risk management is more important than ever. Managers at every level must be equipped with the information to allow them to understand the potential pitfalls of their actions and most importantly, to recognise when to ask for help. Additionally, the management of employment issues on a global level and an understanding of the complexity of employment law across jurisdictions is vital.
An investment in employment law upfront will help your business grow in the long term, not only allowing you to protect your business and reducing costs if something goes wrong, but enabling you to differentiate yourself from competitors in your market.
Why we are different
As one of few firms acting at the highest level for both employers and employees, we have a unique understanding of tactics deployed by both sides and a balanced understanding of the issues involved. We have worked in most business sectors, from financial services to fashion and retail and everything in between. We have a depth of experience in the complex and unique peculiarities of LLPs, private equity and venture capital firms.
We have a strong reputation as high level strategists, with a fearlessness based on experience and know how. We are risk managers with a very good understanding of when to take risk and when to minimise it.
In cases where the relationship between employer and employee becomes contentious, we have a reputation for having a tenacious and creative approach to litigation. We are adept at applying proportionate force at the appropriate time. We find that this not only offers our clients the best chance of success, but also minimises the costs they incur and maximises their return on investment.
Having worked on some of the biggest and most complex litigation cases we have a deep understanding of the litigation and judicial system – we know and maintain close relationships with the best people, leveraging them quickly to our clients’ advantage.
We are proud of our record in helping our clients’ businesses to grow by attracting and retaining the very best talent, as well providing them with tools and knowledge to enable them to handle everyday issues for themselves.
