We work alongside our corporate colleagues on mergers and acquisitions dealing with the specialist employment issues.
This means that we are continually reminded of the need to deliver commercially relevant and practical advice.
We also find that our "hands-on" experience of day-to-day employment work means that we can be more focused and pragmatic when working on corporate deals. Negotiating warranties and indemnities in a document is much easier when you can realistically assess the risk of a claim and how much it is likely to cost.
We also have considerable experience in advising on outsourcing agreements and the implications of TUPE, including advice on consultation with unions and employee representatives.
