International Employment and HR

Our Employment & People Services team covers the full spectrum of employment and pension related issues.

This includes experts who specialise in international employment and immigration who form part of our Global Mobility practice.

We recognise that organisations are increasingly structuring their businesses along functional rather than geographical lines. Managing employees across several jurisdictions with different cultures, laws, politics and languages can be very challenging.

Our international employment experts will work with you to develop practices which balance the need for operational consistency against regional and cultural variations, creating solutions which are both consistent with your international strategy and compliant with local legislation.

We regularly advise on employment issues which involve multiple jurisdictions as well as providing the day-to-day advice which helps you to manage your operations across the world. Our team has considerable experience of managing international HR projects through our network of relationship firms which ensures an integrated and consistently high level of service wherever you work with us.

Our lawyers have dual immigration and employment expertise and work closely with tax, compliance and strategic consultants in our Global Mobility practice. We provide a holistic international solution which is tailored to your organisation and takes account of legal and political developments.
