Leaving employment, whether amicably or otherwise, can be a difficult experience both personally and professionally. 

We work alongside employees to ensure they understand their employment rights and deploy them to the greatest effect, whether by bringing legal claims (such as unfair or wrongful dismissal) or using them as leverage in negotiating suitable exit packages.

We are known for our commercial approach and ability to manage departures smoothly and quickly whilst securing the best possible results for our clients. One of our core areas of specialism lies in negotiating, drafting and advising on settlement agreements and ensuring our clients achieve the most advantageous terms. Our advice to our clients on post-employment terms frequently involves considering and advising on deferred awards, share option schemes and bonus plans, and structuring settlement agreements in a tax-efficient way.
