HR support

In-house HR teams handle all kinds of employment issue, from overseeing training and drafting employment contracts to handling misconduct and redundancies. We will work as an extension of your team, offering support and guidance on how to manage these issues sensitively and effectively.

Our employment team covers every aspect of workforce relationships from every angle. As a result, we are often called upon by employers to provide external support to their HR teams.

We are told by our clients that we are commercial, responsive and, best of all, that they enjoy working with us.

We are here to guide you through grievance and dismissal procedures, ‘family friendly’ rights, sickness absence management, performance management, holiday pay, post-termination restrictions and restructuring and redundancy processes. We also run training courses for managers (that they actually find interesting).

Our client list ranges from global manufacturing businesses, PR companies, recruitment firms, hedge funds and hospitality companies, to non-profit entities, luxury and consumer brands and retailers. Many have or are developing global operations. For example, we recently assisted an IT infrastructure company on its employment issues in the UK, the US and Singapore as well as putting it in touch with trusted lawyers in other jurisdictions.
