We have one of the largest dedicated employment teams in London, advising both organisations and senior executives in complex, high profile, high stakes situations. Our track record of acting at the highest level for both organisations, from start-ups to large multi-national PLCs, and senior executives alike puts us in a strong position when it comes to advising clients. In fact, with each new case we add to our deep understanding of tactics deployed by both sides. Understanding an issue from your opponent’s point of view, knowing where they stand and how they are thinking, is a priceless asset for every one of our new clients.
Our work covers the full spectrum of contentious and non-contentious employment law and we work seamlessly with our dedicated incentives and business immigration teams. Acting at the forefront of employment law, we are regularly instructed on cases that raise the most important legal questions of the day, and we are recognised for our strategic approach and litigation expertise.
Our Iberian and Latin American experience includes:
- Advising a high-profile Spanish football agent on an employment dispute with a UK agency.
- Advising a Peruvian CEO on his relocation to the UK, including the negotiation of his contractual arrangements with a UK financial services business, and tax advice.
- Advising a senior partner in the Spanish office of a global law firm headquartered in the UK on his exit to set up his own Spanish practice.
- Acting for an employer in a multi-jurisdiction team move which included considerations of Uruguayan and Mexican unfair competition and post-termination restrictive covenant laws.
