We are proud of our reputation in advising directors, partners, and senior executives on all aspects of their employment and partnership from negotiating service agreements and partnership agreements to negotiating and drafting severance agreements.

We adapt our approach to the brief. So if a collaborative negotiation with the other side is required to oversee a smooth and amicable departure we will deliver that, but if the brief is to conduct a firm negotiation backed up by litigation if necessary we will deliver that. A good employment lawyer needs a wide range of approaches to achieve results for the varied situations on which advice is sought.

Clients benefit from our deep expertise of the relevant law, our extensive experience of helping senior individuals deal with a wide variety of problems, and our tenacious commitment to getting an excellent outcome for our clients.

We can draw upon a multi-disciplinary team of specialist lawyers to handle complicated problems and disputes such as mixed employment and regulatory difficulties in the financial services sector, board room disputes, serious discrimination claims, contractual disputes including bonus disputes, post termination restrictions, advice on awards and carried interest schemes, professional conduct issues and alleged criminal activity.

This breadth and depth of expertise is a differentiating factor since many firms who specialise in advising senior executives and partners do not have access to the full range of legal specialisms that may be needed to handle a difficult matter.

We tailor our service to you to help guard your reputation and financial position.
