Legislation both in the UK (such as IR35) and internationally regulating the supply, use, and payment of the contingent workers applies to a range of business models. All are affected by legislation aimed at regulating the use of work seekers, agency workers and self-employed contractors.

In recent years, we have completed more deals in the staffing and recruitment sector than any other UK law firm and know exactly how to help grow overseas operations in a way that protects our clients’ core commercial interests. That doesn’t just include the leading generalists, but also the niche suppliers in professional, IT, oil and gas, care and construction, as well as jobsites, work exchanges and digital recruiters.
