Employment, pensions and mobility laws are all areas that have become increasingly topical and often are key to brand value.
Corporate behaviour and ethics are under increasing scrutiny from regulators, the press and employees and prospective employees. Expectations on HR teams and the c-suite are growing and there's more awareness of responsibilities and accountability.
We've established ourselves as a leader in these issues. Our international network of lawyers will help guide you towards this future, and manage the impact of today’s employment, pensions and immigration legislation on your businesses. We'll help you deal with the changing HR compliance environment in a practical and productive way.
We understand HR. We advise on everything HR managers are confronted with in their daily work and work with many HR managers dealing with complex international issues as well as issues in their own domestic countries. We negotiate and resolve conflicts between businesses and employees. Where necessary we defend our clients’ interests in court.
Our clients trust us and we can provide one point of contact for global employment and pension needs. We understand what lies at the heart of every company we work with and how to ensure they get the right talent for them and protect their reputation, especially in times of crisis. We work with business leaders and those who form policy helping to shape future rules, so we know the intricacies of local regulations and how they intersect with international standards.
We work with market disruptors who bring new ideas from other environments. Our advice and ways of working are influenced by this exposure to change. We help established businesses evolve. Our detailed local knowledge coupled with our international presence make us a perfect fit for expanding businesses. Our team includes immigration specialists, so we can advise on all your mobility requirements in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Whether we're dealing with employment issues or pension schemes, we'll provide the best advice for your business.

Our team tackles “people problems” creatively, from every angle, knowing the delicate nature of employment issues which often create the most important decisions a company has to take. Our aim is to make the law work for you, not against you. We will take developing and intellectual legal concepts and apply them pragmatically, with a touch of common sense, to create workable business principles.
We cover all aspects of employment law – from advisory and transactional matters to contentious issues, and have specialists who understand the challenges of key industries such as TMC, life sciences, banking and financial services, manufacturing and engineering, transportation and so on. Our clients range from public to private sector employers, from multinational groups to small companies and a whole range of trustees.
