Fox Williams is a specialist City firm whose lawyers provide in-depth expertise in employment issues.

Organisations across the City and beyond trust us to advise on sensitive matters with the potential to impact negatively on corporate reputation and market perception.

Our employment team provides a partner-led, commercial and cost-effective service to employers and individuals. Our clients are in the City and across the UK. We advise them on a wide range of matters in which human capital is involved, from employment contracts, managing sickness, parental leave and immigration issues to defending allegation of discrimination, resolving workplace disputes, remuneration and employee benefits planning and sensitive matters involving senior employees.

We recognise that the management of people issues involves more than just knowledge of employment law. We work in partnership with our clients to seamlessly manage these issues. Our team includes specialists in employment, IP, data protection, High Court litigation, tax and incentives, partnership, regulatory issues, investigations and business crime.

We are often called upon for our particular expertise in complex litigation, change and restructuring programmes, team moves, sensitive regulatory and governance issues, and difficult exits of senior employees.

Whether we are supporting HR teams, senior management or in-house counsel our lawyers are always responsive and on the ball.
