Firms are often accustomed to hiring in different markets, however, crossing the pond brings challenges that move beyond geographical differences. We are delighted to invite you to a webinar in conjunction with Decipher and Barnes & Thornburg LLP, to help guide you through navigating lateral hiring in the United States vs. the United Kingdom. We will dive deep into risks and impact areas, and offer actionable guidance to prepare for performing due diligence overseas.

Time: 4.00 pm – 5.30 pm BST / 11.00 am – 12.30 pm ET
In this transatlantic webinar, CM Murray LLP Partners Zulon Begum, who specialises in partnership and M&A law, and Merrill April, who specialises in partnership and employment law, with particular experience in advising employers and senior executives, partners, partnerships, LLP members and LLPs on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious issues, Decipher CEO and Founder Michael Ellenhorn, and Barnes & Thornburg LLP General Counsel Karoline Jackson will explore the following key issues, from both a UK and US perspective:
