Employment and Work

Safeguarding your financial status

Our employment lawyers provide a responsive, cost effective service for senior executives in the context of both entry to and exit from employment.

What our employment lawyers do

In addition to the engagement and termination arrangements, our employment lawyers can provide (or where necessary source) advice in relation to:

  • Equity and share options
  • Bonus and other benefit arrangements
  • Tax
  • Pensions
  • Business immigration

How our employment lawyers work

Our employment lawyers work hard to identify your objectives and to put them into practical effect. The experience that we have from our large employer base in a very wide range of sectors means we can readily identify your employer’s likely response to any particular issue, which means we can provide focussed, cost effective advice.

Get in touch by completing our quick form. That way we can ensure the most appropriately qualified person calls you back for an exploratory discussion.

How we've helped

Our employment solicitors have secured excellent outcomes and settlements for a broad range of employees.

Recently we have:

  • Advised a senior executive on departure and exit provisions including short and long term incentive plans.
  • Represented a senior executive in defending a High Court pre-action disclosure application regarding alleged breaches of post termination restrictive covenants.
  • Represented a senior employee with Parkinson's Disease and achieving an Employment Tribunal award of five years future loss of earnings following a finding of unlawful discrimination.
