When you’re buying and selling businesses or tendering for new contracts, we will work closely with you to analyse any employment issues which may arise on these transactions. This includes helping sellers prepare their business for sale and carrying out due diligence for buyers. We will also advise buyers, sellers, clients and contractors on the warranties and indemnities which should be included in the contractual documentation.
We can also guide you through the relevant procedures you must follow, particularly in relation to the recently amended TUPE Regulations.
Our employment team is ready and able to provide you with the comprehensive advice you require to limit any potential liabilities which might otherwise arise and to enable you to effectively integrate any new staff after the transfer. By getting it right and having a plan in place from the start to deal with employees’ concerns, you not only protect your organisation from claims, but also ensure new staff are properly welcomed into your organisation and there is continuity of business performance.
Please contact us if you have an employment-related query. We will check whether we can act for you and, if so, we will confirm the terms and conditions of our retainer with you in a client care or engagement letter
Wherever possible, we will provide you with a fee estimate before carrying out any substantive work on a matter. If we provide advice over the telephone, we will not confirm the advice in writing unless specifically requested to do so. If we are required to carry out any follow-up work to a meeting or call, we will provide you with an estimated timescale for the completion of your work, factoring in any urgency
When providing ad hoc advice, we will usually render a bill to you on a monthly basis. Otherwise, we will bill you on completion of a specific item of work
