We advise many firms in the professional services sector – particularly US and UK law, accountancy and patent & trade mark agents firms. We advise such firms on their full range of employment and partnership law matters, including performance and conduct issues, maternity and family friendly rights, discrimination issues, and handling exits.
We also have a leading reputation for acting for equity partners personally in professional services firms, particularly on partner exits, restrictive covenants, team moves and discrimination and whistleblowing issues.
We are founder members of the Professional Practices Alliance, a unique collaboration of leading independent firms advising professional services firms on partnership law, structuring, tax, accounting, HR and regulatory issues.
