Employment law is integral to business and workplace management and to every working individual.  Yet navigating the minefield of employment law can be daunting and getting it wrong can have serious repercussions.

The team at Mishcon de Reya manages the full spectrum of contentious and non-contentious employment law.  We are experienced in managing complex, high profile and high stake situations, acting at the highest level for both organisations and senior executives. As a result we have a unique understanding of tactics deployed by both sides and a balanced understanding of the issues involved.

The team are high level strategists, with a fearlessness based on experience, and have a deep understanding of both the mediation and judicial system, frequently managing litigation in the Employment Tribunal, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court on issues including discrimination, whistleblowing and unlawful competition, including the enforcement of restrictive covenants.  We are risk managers, with a very good understanding of when to take risks and when to minimise them. We are adept at applying proportionate force at the appropriate time to offer clients the best chance of success.

We act as a trusted advisor to our clients, working with them to build their businesses via restructures, mergers or acquisitions; and to defend against claims, resolve disputes and manage investigations and litigation. We frequently advise on large scale strategic projects, executive remuneration, incentives and business immigration.  We have significant experience dealing with the complexities of LLPs and the issues that affect their members.

We also work with Senior Executives, CEOs and Non-Executive Directors, across all sectors, from finance and banking to sport, to manage their personal employment law needs. This ranges from negotiating the terms on which they enter or exit employment, to resolving disputes, or representing them in regulatory investigations and proceedings (such as LIBOR).
