Successful careers inevitably include up and downs. Some career moves work well, others less so. Businesses, roles and people change over time.

In good times and bad, we act as a trusted source of advice and practical assistance to executives on employment law and related issues. Perhaps paradoxically, it is often in good times that advice is most valuable – because those are usually the times when the negotiating position of the executive is at its strongest. Effective advice at that stage often lays the foundation for a more favourable result if and when business life gets tougher.

Our services to executives cover the full range of issues that can arise in employment relationships, from recruitment to exit and all points in between. They include, for example, advising on executives’ rights under bonus, long term incentive and share schemes, negotiating service agreements and, where necessary, exit terms.

To be successful, executives must actively manage their careers – including taking tough and sometimes risky decisions when necessary. Availability, speed, accuracy and clarity of advice are all vital. But even more important are the adviser’s abilities to listen, to grasp the situation on the ground and to provide a service tailored to the executive’s context and the context of the business.

Having our specialist expertise and hands-on approach with them all the way gives our clients the added confidence to take a firm grip, to pursue their goals and build for the future.

The pages in this section cover the main areas in which we provide support and services to executives. However, they do not cover everything. Employment issues are as diverse as can be: anger, grief, envy, passion, ego, spite, lust, hate, loyalty, greed, love … all human life can be found in them! So if you do not find what you are looking for in these pages, try picking up the phone and giving us a call. The chances are we will have come across a similar issue to the one you face –and will have learnt from the experience.
