Employment contracts

There is a lot to think about when agreeing a new employment contract. Our lawyers have experience across a range of sectors, and will make sure the document puts you in a strong position – whether in regard to employee benefits or post-termination restrictions.

We are frequently asked by senior professionals to review their employment contracts.

This includes advising directors of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies on everything from service agreements and benefits documents to corporate indemnification and post-termination restrictions. Whether you’re in banking, manufacturing, technology or advertising (to name a few), we have knowledge of your sector and can help you get the best deal.

Because we act for employers and employees, we can see both sides when we are drafting documents and can anticipate points the other side will raise. This might be in relation to the hire of a key executive, such as the CEO of a globally recognized luxury brand. Or we can assist more broadly, for example advising a financial services client on contracts and benefits for employees in London, New York, Singapore and Hong Kong.

As well as initial employment agreements, we can advise on consultancy and secondment agreements, employment policies and staff handbooks. We also offer a ‘policy audit’ service to help employers comply with changes in the law.
