The damage that a highly-publicised employment claim can cause to the goodwill of a business should never be underestimated. Our specialist employment team can help you manage, and ultimately avoid, high-risk employment claims.
We can help you avoid executive and shareholder embarrassment, potential negative effects on recruitment and retention, potential personal liability, unnecessary legal costs and claims, and unwanted media attention.
Our international employment lawyers work together closely to spot trends in case law globally and advise clients on a transnational basis. We work with all our clients to build a strong relationship as their trusted adviser. We provide solutions, not lists of options, which ultimately protect our clients from unwanted reputational risk.
When we can’t avoid a litigation, our litigators and experts will deal with the matter, and in mutual agreement with the client, try to see if a settlement agreement can be signed.
In today’s world it is vital that your business retains its competitive edge to succeed tomorrow. Your trade relationships, information, assets and opportunities can be irreparably damaged if your workforce business protection mechanisms fail to evolve with the ever changing technological and legal landscape.
Our specialist employment team can help ensure that you have all angles covered to put your business on the strongest footing – from bespoke restrictive covenants and confidentiality provisions, through to IP and professional networking / social media restrictions.
Unfortunately, however, it is also likely that members of your workforce are waiting in the wings to leave your business – and take part of it with them. It is all too easy (and tempting) to take confidential information with one click of a button, organise a team move or poach clients using networking sites. Whatever your issue, our experienced team is on hand to help you immediately address the threat and minimise the risks to your business and reputation.
Our team has extensive experience in helping protect businesses from anti-competitive practices – including protecting confidential information and enforcing covenants, preventing team moves and obtaining undertakings, damages and injunctions. Our team also helps companies sitting on the other side of the fence too – from successfully arguing restrictions are not enforceable all the way through to advising on the best ways to onboard restricted employees and their teams and expanding client bases.
