We regularly advise clients from this sector on the full range of employment law issues relating to settting up and hiring staff in the UK, acquiring a business with UK employees and downsizing or closing a UK operation.
We also specialise in representing employers in the luxury goods and services sector in defending whistleblowing and discrimination claims and enforcing and challenging employee restrictive covenants.
