For many organisations, particularly those in the financial services arena, their value is tied up in their staff: client relationships, know-how and intellectual property form the backbone of their business.
Our employment department can help protect your business at all stages, from drafting robust contracts, policies and procedures, helping identify potential risk areas, managing redundancies and other exits (including mitigating the risk of constructive dismissal claims) to prosecuting and defending injunction applications. Our sizeable team is well-equipped to handle the time-intensive requirements of a speedy trial, whilst ensuring that you benefit from a seamless partner-led service.
We have significant experience within the financial services sector, and are particularly recommended for our work in contentious matters, including defending bonus and incentive claims, defending whistleblowing and discrimination claims, High Court injunctions and team moves. We can provide in-house training and regular email updates on these rapidly developing areas of law.
On the non-contentious side, we have notable expertise in drafting and advising on post-termination restrictions, complex incentive arrangements and compensation arrangements, including the impact of the FCA's Remuneration Code and likely impact of the AIFM Remuneration Code from both the employer and the executive's perspective.
Examples of our work include:
