We work with organisations to ensure they have the right documentation in place, tailored to their business, to ensure that they can recruit, motivate and retain their best talent.
In a competitive market place, attracting and retaining the best talent to lead your organisation is essential. We have a proven track record of acting for businesses and individuals on both executive and non-executive appointments across a number of industry sectors.
We use our knowledge to tailor your service agreements to suit you ensuring you have the protection and flexibility to meet your goals both during the employment relationship and after it ends. For example, we regularly design bespoke restrictive covenants to protect your clients and customers in the event of an executive departure. Our understanding of different industries means we are well placed to ensure you operate within the boundaries of your specific industry regulation. In particular, a number of our legal advisers are financial service specialists who can advise on the unique requirements in this area. We also work closely with our corporate, tax and pension teams to offer a complete picture when advising on management appointments, saving you time and money.
When it comes to the end of the relationship, whilst every executive exit will be different, it is critical that the business is not put at risk, whether from the loss of customers or key employees, or from Employment Tribunal litigation. We proactively manage termination negotiations to ensure that your business is protected in the future.
Managing executive change is part of Shoosmiths’ wider employment and immigration offering. If you would like help finding the right team or lawyer please contact us on +44 (0)3700 863 000 or contact us by email to [email protected].
