When it comes to advising on employment and pensions issues, you can’t sit on the fence, so neither do we.

Practical support

We provide clear and precise advice, giving you commercial certainty, not legal doubts. That means practical, day-to-day support covering the full range of employment law issues as well as specialist advice on immigration, pensions and employee incentive schemes.

In-depth experience

We have extensive experience of advising a large number of international clients on a wide-range of matters, spanning multiple jurisdictions. Our pan-European team has in-depth experience advising on reorganisations and corporate acquisitions and disposals, as well as employment disputes and strategic and reputational support and risk management. Our specialist work in pensions has seen us help a great many employers change their arrangements to meet today's needs and manage the financial risk of their past liabilities.

International reach

Our international lawyers work together closely to spot trends in case law globally and advise clients on a transnational basis, and with offices in the largest European business centres, we are able to balance our legal advice with cultural considerations. While much of our work crosses borders and jurisdictions, our clients can also rely on receiving expert local advice.

There is a consistent culture of bright, capable lawyers who can deal pleasantly, clearly, and pragmatically with clients. Not all lawyers do this “pragmatic translation” bit well.
