An established reputationOur employment group has long been recognised by both Chambers and Legal 500 legal directories as leading providers of employment services. We provide straightforward, practical advice on domestic and international matters to employers and senior employees. We understand that employment issues often need a sensitive approach, but also appreciate the commercial needs of our clients. The team supports HR teams through day-to-day advisory work, including advice on intractable disciplinary and grievance issues, performance management, redundancy programmes, outsourcing deals and other TUPE advice. We also regularly work alongside our corporate and commercial teams providing assistance on transactions where specialist employment law knowledge is an essential part of the successful completion of outsourcing deals, mergers and acquisitions.
Market leading litigation and advisory expertise
At the core of our practice is our litigation expertise. Whilst we take pride in the fact that many of our cases never reach the tribunal stage and that working to resolve a case in an amicable manner for all parties early in the proceedings can often be the most cost-effective approach, we are particularly adept in managing large complex disputes.
As there are times when it is important to take a robust stance, then our considerable litigation capability comes into play. Clyde & Co has one of the largest litigation practices of any UK law firm and our employment team is very experienced at managing high value and reputational discrimination and whistleblowing cases including advising on business critical restrictive covenant and team move disputes. These high value and often complex cases usually take place in the High Court.
