Overview

The relationship between employers and employees are often harmonious and mutually beneficial. However, when disputes arise, they can attract unwanted public attention which can be damaging to a reputation or brand. Companies need to be able to anticipate workplace disputes, as well as have decisive strategies in the face of any incidents.

Whether an employer is looking for assistance structuring new employment agreements, or needs assistance settling personal grievance claims, our team is there to provide all the employment-related services they require.

We also offer clients services in health and safety, compliance and litigation and are experts in industrial relations.

Our lawyers assist with the protection of confidential information, enforcement of restraints of trade, misconduct issues and performance management, and can help during the sale, merger, or outsourcing of a business with issues like redundancy and restructuring.

Our finance experts can also assist with issues around superannuation and KiwiSaver, and we can provide assistance during issues relating to human rights, privacy, harassment and worker’s compensation.
