A badly managed exit or entry may have very negative implications, for both employers and employees. The right strategic and legal advice is crucial at the outset. Outcomes need to be managed fairly, and where there is media interest, strategically and discreetly. Having tough but pragmatic advisers can make all the difference.
The Employment team at Mishcon de Reya act in market sensitive entries and exits, high profile litigation, and in negotiating contracts and severance terms.
We work with both employers and employees to manage and negotiate entries and exits quickly and tactfully, pre-empting the fallout and minimising disruption and reputational damage to both the business and the individuals concerned.
We work with employers on preventative measures to minimise the risk of claims, ensuring adequate training, policies and procedures are in place.
When claims do arise we have a reputation for having a tenacious and creative approach to litigation. We advise both employers and employees on how to resolve disputes as quickly and effectively as possible, and are adept at applying proportionate force at the appropriate time.
