We work alongside our clients, whether you have an in-house legal team or not, providing end-to-end coverage on people-related matters

By working in partnership with your HR team, we can be on hand to ensure your people strategy achieves the desired results in a robust and legally sound manner.

You can rely on us to take ownership and responsibility for issues and initiatives, provide additional resources to cover staff absences, and deliver commercially sound, practical advice.

A good example of this approach in action is our work with the legal and HR functions of the UK and Ireland business unit of a global corporate. We challenge ourselves to not only be responsive the company's direct instructions and needs, but also to leverage our understanding of the business to provide proactive advice and identify potential efficiencies and improvements.

Our handpicked team is embedded within the company's legal function, such that we intuitively understand the client's needs and their likely instructions based on our deep understanding of its appetite for risk, internal processes, people strategy and culture.

After a sudden departure from the client’s internal function, for instance, we were quickly able to bring in a secondee from our team. As they already had a deep understanding of the business, they were able to hit the ground running and immediately take pressure off the existing team.

We have taken ownership of the business’s employment/HR legal needs and operate as a seamless extension of their existing legal function. Our service is delivered in the same manner and using the same 'company language' as the internal team, which makes our advice easily accessible for all stakeholders.
