    We provide a full range of employment advice to oil & gas clients with operations worldwide.

    Our team advises a number of well-known oil & gas entities with operations in a wide range of jurisdictions. We provide the full range of assistance in relation to employment issues from day-to-day advisory work (including advice on shift work, mobility of workers, international relocations, disciplinaries and grievances), to disputes and project and transactional work.

    Our employment dispute resolution experience includes handling litigation from unfair dismissal claims to reputational whistleblowing and discrimination claims, to dealing with restrictive covenant injunctions and High Court work.

    We are also one of the few London based employment groups that have dedicated pensions and immigration teams. Our pensions team provides full ranging advice in relation to pensions, including advising on pensions projects heavily investing in the oil & gas sector.

    Immigration issues are managed effectively and efficiently. Our immigration team provides a full service, covering all aspects of commercial immigration.
