Employment law is a fast moving area. This presents a significant compliance burden for employers where the consequences of falling on the wrong side of the line can be significant. Similarly, for senior individuals employment law is a labyrinth of technicality which can seem impenetrable at critical moments in a person’s career.
Our employment team advises our clients on the broad spectrum of employment law issues. Our team understands that law does not operate in a vacuum. Instead, the team’s advice is commercial, strategic and adaptable to changing circumstances.
Each member of the employment team is highly personable, flexible and collaborative. For our clients, this translates into real value-add and the team are often thanked by clients for their professionalism and method of delivery which always includes prompt responsiveness.
