Our Service

We routinely work in conjunction with our Corporate and Commercial Department, providing advice on the employment aspects of transactions, including business sales and reorganisations, outsourcing / insourcing / second generation contracting and purchases out of insolvency.

Our experience includes reviewing extensive portfolios of employment related information in order to advise clients on the potential legal and financial consequences of transactions, particularly in insolvency situations when employment related liabilities are crucial.

We also advise on the operation of the TUPE (the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006), including guiding clients through the often complicated information and consultation obligations and the requirement for the provision of employee liability information.

In addition, we provide training and advice on the election of representatives and to elected representatives to equip them to participate effectively in information and consultation exercises.

Our Approach

Our employment solicitors are dedicated to assisting and advising on how to achieve your business objectives in the most efficient and practical way. We pride ourselves on providing straightforward and bespoke advice tailored to your business requirements and resources.

We understand that employers need to be decisive and act calmly but quickly in the context of the current coronavirus crisis.

Your work will be carried out by a qualified solicitor in the team, who knows your business requirements best. Work is also carried out at the appropriate level, depending on the complexity, sensitivity and importance of the matter. 

We work closely with our clients to ensure that we meet their expectations both in terms of their objectives and in relation to costs. We are aware that clarity on costs is vitally important to our clients, especially at a time when businesses are challenged by sudden and dramatic changes to economic circumstances.

As standard practice, we give our clients an estimate of the costs involved in undertaking any piece of work at the outset. We then provide cost updates on a regular basis. We are also happy to discuss fixed fees and retainer arrangements and agreements if that is helpful.

Our Experience

Recent examples of work in this area include:

  • Providing a comprehensive calculation of employment liabilities for 2,500 employees in a target company of our client and dealing with associated TUPE and redundancy issues
  • Advising on the employment risks and the best way to manage the insourcing of cleaning and security services for an airport operator
  • Assisting a client with its pitch for a multi-million pound call centre contract
  • Advising on the sale of a specialist medical screening company to a UK listed purchaser
