劳动、养老金和移民

We handle the full spectrum of employment issues on behalf of clients across the world, whether on a local basis or with regard to their international operations.

Confidently at the forefront of workplace legal practice

Confidently at the forefront of workplace legal practice

Clyde & Co has a presence across six continents and serves clients across the full range of industries, professions and sectors. This has given us unrivalled knowledge of employment law in all the world’s major economies.

Armed with this knowledge and experience, we tailor the advice we give to suit the needs of each client, whether in a single jurisdiction or to support their cross-border operations.

We understand that managing human resource obligations is a priority for clients. They need to attract, retain and reward a capable workforce while ensuring compliance with relevant regulations and legislation, which can range from immigration law to the supervision of pension scheme liabilities.

We also have an enviable track record of helping employers who are involved in legal disputes, from unfair dismissal and discrimination claims to reputational whistleblowing. We also specialise in team moves, business protection and restrictive covenants.

We strive to achieve amicable solutions wherever possible, and it is a point of pride that many of the cases in which we are involved do not reach the tribunal stage. For those that do, however, we are happy to deploy our proven litigation capability.

We offer clients a global service with leading employment, immigration and pensions practices in the UK, the Middle East, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia. Through our relationships with leading employment law practices as affiliated members (UK and Singapore) of L&E Global we have a truly global offering. Click here to find out more about L&E Global.
