We act for a variety of employers and employees alike, and provide the full complement of contentious and non-contentious services in this area.
We routinely advise and represent company directors and senior City executives on pre- and post-employment issues and contractual entitlements arising from their service agreements with a particular focus on post-termination restrictions and the right to receive “discretionary” payments.
We draft contracts and employee handbooks and advise employers and their HR managers on best practise and claims avoidance. We also guide our clients through the formalities of disciplinary and grievance procedures and managing redundancies and dismissals.
Once an employment relationship has come to an end, we negotiate exit packages and draft compromise agreements for employers and employees.
We also advise fellow professionals with regard to employment issues, and especially those arising in the insolvency context and the sale and transfer of assets by insolvency practitioners.
When our clients’ interests require protection or if negotiations ultimately fail to resolve a dispute, there is recourse to the Courts and the Employment Tribunals. We are well equipped to represent your interests in either forum.
