TUPE

The team has ‘a highly responsive, no-nonsense, businesslike approach’ and offers expertise in compromise agreements and TUPE matters.

Chambers & Partners, 2009

With extensive experience of TUPE (the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006) our Employment team know the importance of combining sound practical business advice with relevant legal advice when dealing with such transfers.

TUPE can be an extremely complex area of law.  However, with our practical approach together with our industry expertise and attention to detail, we can help make the transfer process run as smoothly as possible.

Significant experience

We have significant experience in dealing with TUPE issues in relation to both asset sales and outsourcings and regularly work closely with both our Corporate and IP and Commercial teams in relation to such issues.  We are also well acquainted with the specific requirements of transfers from the public sector.  We can provide advice on the information, consultation and information-sharing processes required as well as drafting input in relation to the sale and purchase or agreements themselves, however large or small the business being transferred.  In addition, we are able to advise on the drafting of outsourcing agreements to ensure that you are properly protected on both entry to the arrangement and when the contract comes to an end.
