Redundancy and Restructuring

Carrying out redundancies can be complex and requires careful planning. Our team specialises in advising employers on all aspects of redundancy, from large scale strategic reorganisations to individual redundancies, and has significant experience in co-ordinating redundancies across jurisdictions.  Achieving the strategic long and short term aims of the business, whilst minimising the risk of claims, is key. If matters become contentious, we have significant experience acting in disputes concerning redundancy issues.

We also have significant experience working for employees to bring claims arising from redundancy processes, as well as with employee representatives to ensure the company is following adequate procedures.
