Employment

Employment is fundamentally important to both people and organizations. With unparalleled experience acting for individuals, and longstanding relationships with employers of all shapes and sizes, our dedicated global team of lawyers can help find the best solution.

We bring a depth of experience and creativity to help solve problems that can arise at any stage of an employment relationship.

As a highly respected global team of employment lawyers, acting for employers and employees in equal numbers, we offer creative solutions that help you to get the best from your working relationships. 

Renowned for advising senior executives

Our team stands out for their work with top-tier executives across a wide range of sectors including financial services, advertising, fashion, sport and charities. We are known for our tenacity; whether you are negotiating a golden handshake or a difficult exit, we commit to getting you the best deal in every case.

Trusted advice to employers

We have long-standing relationships with many well-known national and global employers, including Anya Hindmarch, Tate and Winton Capital Management, who call on us for everything from advice on contracts to crisis management when wrongdoing by an employee is discovered. 

When disputes do arise, we think tactically, creating a commercial strategy to support your needs using our extensive knowledge of employment law.

Global reach

With offices around the world and employment attorneys qualified in more than one jurisdiction, we are well placed to help both senior executives and employers with cross-border matters. Recently we coordinated employment advice across Europe, the US, Asia and the Caribbean for a global IT company.

As a full-service firm, we can also call on colleagues to help with associated matters including tax, pensions, regulatory issues and reputation management.
