Business Restructures and Varying Contracts

Entering a restructuring or a redundancy process can be a daunting experience for any business but even the most successful businesses need to ensure they are operating efficiently. Careful planning at the outset is vital to minimising the risk of employee claims and for directors to understand the risks and issues that they face.

Our employment lawyers understand the practical and legal challenges which a re-organisation exercise inevitably presents. We can guide you through the whole process, helping to keep disruption to a minimum, and aiming to avoid costly tribunals.

Areas of advice include:

  • guidance on practical requirements
  • strategies to manage employee relations
  • variations to terms and conditions
  • redundancy
  • structural and strategic considerations

Square One Law is our first and only choice for employment law and legal advice. Having spent significant time and money on legal counsel over the years we found ourselves left wanting better. JP and the employment team at Square One Law have taken on every challenge we have given them and delivered effective contractual, taxation and legal positions to move our business forward in domestic and international working environment.
