Recruitment Services (Corporate)

Recruitment Services

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. A transition period, during which EU laws continue to apply in the UK, is due to end on 31 December 2020. The UK/EU Withdrawal Agreement sets out transitional arrangements and negotiations for the future UK/EU relationship are ongoing.

We have the largest dedicated Recruitment Services Group in the UK, including specialists in regulatory, litigation, employment and corporate law. We have acted at the highest level for organisations, individuals and teams in this sector for over 20 years. 

We are acutely aware that recruitment services are changing and recognise the increasingly pervasive grip of regulation and compliance. We not only provide expert regulatory and commercial advice, but also advise on upcoming legal developments that will affect staffing companies.

This understanding allows us to be strategic and creative in our approach to protecting our clients' businesses and guiding them through all phases of their growth cycle.

We offer a genuine 'one-stop shop', providing practical and commercial solutions in the most complex situations. We advise on the full spectrum of contentious and non–contentious matters, and regularly draw upon additional expertise from our immigration, competition, tax, IT and reputation management colleagues.

In recent years, very few firms have advised on the number of corporate transactions on which we have acted. Our employment lawyers are often instructed on complex, high profile and high value breach of covenant, breach of confidence, and team move disputes. We also advise on cases that raise the most important legal questions of the day, such as diversity and gender pay, employment status and the implications of the "gig" economy, and the interplay between data, transparency and privacy.

We have one of the largest and most comprehensive dispute resolution offerings in the UK, acting for staffing businesses with disputes which cross multiple jurisdictions. We also have an in-house team of technical specialists in the fields of cyber security, data protection and brand management.

Our clients are both bricks and mortar and platform-based, and range from major international players to SMEs and start-ups, including Allen Lane, Belcan International, Darwin Enterprise, Day Webster, Empiric Solutions, Green Park, Impellam Group, Hays, nGAGE Specialist Recruitment, PageGroup, Penta Consulting, Quinyx, Search Consultancy and Staffing 360 Solutions.
