Employment contracts, policies & procedures

… the lawyers understand exactly what makes an organisation tick and are able to offer very specific advice.

Chambers & Partners

Our team has significant experience advising on and drafting contracts, policies and procedures.  Our work in this area can range from reviewing and tailoring individual contract clauses to drafting entire staff handbooks.

Proactive advice

We are proactive in keeping our clients up to date on changes in the law and any relevant amendments that might be needed to their contractual and policy documentation, for example, in areas such as equal opportunities, family rights and disciplinary and grievance procedures.  We also frequently carry out audits of clients’ contracts and staff handbooks to ensure that they comply with any relevant statutory changes.

In addition to advising employers on these issues, we are also viewed as market leaders in relation to work for senior executives and high-net-worth individuals.  Such work often involves advice on the implications of an employee’s contract of employment either before starting work for a new employer or at the end of their employment.
