- Day to day HR guidance;
- Dispute resolution, both internally and in the courts, particularly involving senior executives/employee shareholders, restrictive covenants and team moves;
- The employment aspects of all forms of corporate transactions and restructurings;
- Employee incentive arrangements (including profit share and equity based schemes); and
- Commercial arrangements for the engagement of staff that fall outside of the standard employment model, including complex consultancy /services arrangements, including those with a significant IP and/or multinational dimension.
