Employment & corporate disputes

Our lawyers deal with all legal aspects governing the employment relationship. We advise employers and senior employees on both contentious and non contentious employment related issues.

We have significant experience in providing advice on all issues such as drafting and negotiating contracts of employment and workplace policies; advising on the procedures required for successfully completing a disciplinary or grievance procedure; advising employers on the Transfer of Undertakings Regulations especially where the employer is part of a complex group structure; advice on redundancy and work place restructuring.

We frequently provide advice and represent employers and senior employees in all disputes arising out of the employment relationship including claims in the Employment Appeals Tribunal, the Equality Authority or the High Court. In addition our team excels in dealing with complex corporate and commercial disputes. We regularly act for and against investors, funds, directors, investment managers, service providers, banks and insurance companies in a wide range of contract and tort claims. Our team performs its own advocacy, where possible and appropriate, thereby minimising the need for external counsel.

Often our litigation strategies are based on first having identified the legal issues relevant to the dispute – such as directors' duties, the meaning and effect of Articles of Association and shareholder agreements, or other contractual provisions. We also provide litigation advice and input in relation to drafting documents and implementing commercial strategies designed to avoid complex litigation.
