Employment Law and Immigration for Businesses

Your business relies on its people to succeed and although finding the right talent can take time, it opens up exciting opportunities for your business. That is why it is so important to manage employment issues correctly. If an employee feels ill-treated or you miss any regulatory obligations, it can have a detrimental effect on your culture, and your reputation and financial stability could be at risk.

Key Contacts


From SMEs to partnerships and corporates to major multinationals, businesses of sizes and stature face employment issues. Perhaps you would like legal guidance when hiring your first employee, or you could be hiring talent from oversees and need supervision through immigration issues. Your business may be facing unfair dismissal or discrimination charges, or you may need employment advice through a merger or acquisition process.

When it comes to employment law, your business and employee objectives must come first. Working closely with you and towards your commercial objectives, we will recommend practical strategies to help you manage your team. With our expert legal support on hand, you can concentrate on growing your business.
