Employment Disputes

Our market-leading team is steeped in litigation experience. We have an excellent track record of success and have been involved in many complex and high-value partnership and employment disputes over the past two decades.

We are equally at home in the Employment Tribunal, the High Court and in arbitration. Our lawyers have particular experience in dealing with cross-border litigation, working on a number of the most important cases in this area in recent years.

We recognise that our clients – whether claimants or defendants - want more than legal expertise alone: they also demand dedicated trusted advisors who will work tirelessly to provide a strategic focus and deliver the best commercial outcomes.
