We advise on the full spectrum of contentious and non-contentious employment law, with experience in managing complex, high profile and high stake situations. We act as trusted advisors to clients across all business sectors and at all stages of development, from start-ups to large multi-national PLCs, with niche expertise advising LLPs and Partnerships, working seamlessly with our dedicated incentives and business immigration teams. Together we build our clients' businesses, defend against claims, resolve disputes, and manage investigations and complex executive and boardroom issues, leveraging our dedicated reputation protection experts where needed. 

We advise on whistleblowing, discrimination, team moves and restrictive covenants, as well as on corporate transactions, restructurings and strategic projects.

Acting at the forefront of employment law, we are regularly instructed on cases that raise the most important legal questions of the day, from diversity and gender pay, to employment status and the implications of the "gig" economy, to the interplay between data, transparency and privacy. The team is renowned for its strategic approach and litigation expertise, regularly appearing in the Employment Appeal Tribunal, Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.

Our annual in-house counsel day covers pertinent and current legal topics relevant to all in-house lawyers.

Delivering optimum value means working closely with our clients as part of their teams, getting to know their issues and priorities and tailoring our employment advice to their business. One way we can do this is by regularly attending our clients' HR team meetings to hold training or "surgery" sessions.

Sessions will train and develop your HR professionals and support them in resolving day-to-day issues, managing specific projects or tackling challenges you are facing.  The content and frequency of these meetings will be bespoke and flexible, tailored to your evolving needs.

For more information, please contact Will Winch.
