ACQUIRING A BUSINESS WITH UK EMPLOYEES
We specialise in providing expert advice and guidance on the issues to be considered when acquiring a business with UK employees.
We regularly undertake general employment and HR advisory work in relation to business restructurings, mergers, acquisitions and transfers under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (‘TUPE’) for our clients headquartered overseas.
We give expert advice on the complex TUPE issues that can arise, including in relation to insolvency provisions and the question of whether particular employees are covered by the Regulations.
