Our expertise in acting for employers in such disputes, including injunctions and claims in the courts as well as employment tribunal matters is extensive.
Our clients appreciate our ability to flex our approach in contentious matters. Litigation can be costly, time-consuming and potentially damaging from a reputational perspective, and we support clients to resolve conflicts to avoid these risks in the best way for them. We also regularly defend our clients in the courts and employment tribunals against claims brought by employees and former employees, including discrimination, whistleblowing and unfair dismissal.
We also help clients to pursue former employees where they present an actual or potential threat to the business through the theft of confidential information, poaching of colleagues, soliciting of customers or where they are looking to join a competitor. This includes action in the civil courts for injunctions.
Our work covers not only individual but also collective employment disputes where works councils, trade unions or other employee representatives are involved.
