We are employment law specialists, advising on all areas of employment law, both contentious and non-contentious. Our team is particularly experienced in handling complex and reputationally sensitive issues for our clients. We routinely advise on very large corporate transactions, business-critical litigation and complex advisory matters.

We advise clients across a range of sectors with particularly strong financial service and partnerships practices. Our experience and familiarity with the complexities of the remuneration arrangements typical in these sectors allows us to add particular value to clients.

Our expertise in acting for partnerships also makes us stand out in the market. Employment law is becoming increasingly relevant to the operation of partnerships and LLPs and our experience in acting for both LLPs and LPs, we add real value to our clients structured in this way. We are well placed to advise on partner / member disputes as well as offers, leaver status, complex carried interest provisions and exit arrangements / liabilities.

We also routinely advise clients on:

  • day-to-day HR issues;
  • discrimination at work;
  • employee terminations;
  • employment litigation and disputes;
  • redundancy, collective consultation and industrial relations;
  • restrictive covenants and team moves; and
  • TUPE and corporate restructuring.
