Employment Lawyers

Managing and maximising talent

Employment lawyers in London for UK start-ups, scale-ups and the entrepreneurially-spirited

Every leader knows that a company’s greatest asset is its workforce.

But too often, the legal foundation of retaining, incentivising and managing key talent is left to cookie cutter contracts and boilerplate reward schemes.

Employment law for start-ups and scale-ups can be a particular pinch point – especially for those in growth or mid-pivot. UK employment law is complex and frequently changing, so it’s crucial to get the details right and take the best legal advice as early as possible.

Every day we help clients navigate challenges around talent to minimise risks and maximise the effectiveness of incentive schemes. We’ve been through our own fast growth and international expansion, so we understand the terrain. We’re also equipped to advise on immigration and relocation issues.
