Our Service

Our lawyers at Myerson regularly advise clients on engagement terms for consultants and contractors.  We also advise on the regulations that apply to agency workers and zero-hours contracts.

Advice relates to issues surrounding employment status, notice requirements, practical issues such as indemnities and insurance and the potential tax consequences of such arrangements.

We also advise clients in relation to umbrella companies, managed service companies and the IR35 tax provisions.

Our lawyers at Myerson are also able to provide specialist advice in relation to the rights and protections afforded to commercial agents.
