3 Introduction Slaughter and May Slaughter and May is an English law firm with an international corporate, commercial and financial practice. We have offices in London together with offices in Brussels, Hong Kong and Beijing. Our clients include industrial and commercial companies from all business sectors, utilities, banks and other financial institutions, building societies, insurance companies and professional firms, as well as governments, public bodies and other organisations. We have very close working relationships with leading independent law firms in all the major jurisdictions and provide our clients with cohesive multi jurisdictional advice. The Employment group The Employment group is part of our wider Pensions and Employment department, which advises on pension benefits, employment law, employee share schemes and other employee benefit related matters. The department comprises 5 partners and over 20 qualified lawyers, plus dedicated know how lawyers and trainee solicitors. Our lawyers are multi disciplinary and many of them advise on pensions and/or share schemes as well as employment issues. For more details about the work of the wider Pensions and Employment department, see our separate brochure (available from your usual Slaughter and May contact). They are accessible and always get back to me in a reasonable period of time. Also very pragmatic and make sure we act practically and appropriately. Chambers UK, 2015 / Employment 3

4 Our Employment practice Employment is a constantly changing and increasingly regulated area. We provide our clients with practical and commercial responses to the raft of new legislation, case law and regulatory changes, and the many difficult and sensitive employment issues which may arise. We advise on a wide range of contentious and non contentious employment matters, including: drafting and negotiating employment documentation, especially for key senior personnel the latest corporate governance and executive remuneration requirements employment aspects of all commercial transactions including acquisitions, disposals and service provision changes, flotations, takeovers and insolvent restructurings redundancies and restructurings employment disputes and dismissals, particularly those involving senior executives or complex issues involving discrimination and whistle blowing. The majority of employment disputes we deal with are settled prior to a hearing, and the team has considerable experience in negotiating settlements and resolutions. If litigation cannot be avoided, we prepare cases for the employment tribunal and in conjunction with our colleagues in the Dispute Resolution team also act on employment matters in the High Court and the Court of Appeal. Due to its nature the majority of our work remains highly confidential, but some examples of our work is included in the details of key individuals below. Total class. The Legal 500, Employment /

5 International We are frequently involved in cross jurisdictional employment matters. We therefore have an excellent network of Best Friend firms with whom we coordinate to provide seamless employment law advice in multiple jurisdictions. We exchange knowhow and share our experiences of current trends in the international labour market with them, for the benefit of our multi jurisdictional client base. Pro bono The Employment group works with a number of pro bono clients, including Save the Children, National Literacy Trust, and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Our lawyers also support clients of the Islington Law Service with employment related queries. Expert opinions on new developments We have an active interest in shaping the development of new employment law, for the benefit of our clients. Our employment lawyers are active members of the Employment Lawyers Association (ELA), and we were part of the working party which formulated ELA s response to the various consultations and discussion papers published by the Department for Business, Skills and Innovation (BIS) on reforming executive remuneration. We also worked with the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA) on a new model form appointment letter for non executive directors, to take account of market practice. / Employment 5

6 Our approach to providing legal services Commitment to excellence We have a commitment to excellence in the legal services that we supply. This starts with the recruitment of the highest quality trainees and extensive training for them. It continues with a strong commitment to on going training for our lawyers, to pooling and organising our know how and to producing and improving precedents and other model documents. For clients, this approach means a commitment to: technical accuracy practical advice provided on a timely basis innovative solutions leading to a service which both adds value and provides value for money. Management of complex legal projects We have considerable experience in the Employment group in managing a wide range of complex legal projects. The nature of Slaughter and May s work means that the group is frequently involved in complex transactions and corporate developments that demand flexible solutions to issues affecting employees. The stand alone work we do, because of the firm s client base, tends to involve challenging projects with complex management implications; for example whistle blowing and discrimination claims, and high profile hirings and firings. Charges We believe it is not solely the amount of time spent but what is accomplished during that time which has value. We see the client paying for us solving the crossword puzzle not just staring at it. We are happy to provide estimates for particular jobs and to discuss different fee structures for different types of work. They re superb: very pragmatic. The advice is considered against a technical background and delivered in a commercial fashion. Chambers UK, Employment /

7 Publications and seminars We are committed to building long term relationships with our clients. That means we are prepared to invest time in getting to know our clients, both through acting on transactions and helping them to navigate their way through the changing employment landscape through regular publications and a variety of seminars. Client publications Our Employment / Employee Benefits Bulletin is produced every two or three weeks. It keeps clients up to date with new law, the latest cases and changes in market practice in the employment and employee benefits field. Client seminars We run a variety of client seminars at our London office. Recent seminars in the employment field have included: Remuneration reporting: New Years resolutions and The employment contract MOT. We are happy to offer tailored sessions to clients, and deliver them at our clients premises. Recent examples include bespoke client training on TUPE in M&A transactions, and cross border employment trends. We also offer client teleconferences on topics such as shared parental leave and collective redundancies. We also produce publications which summarise an aspect of employment law as it applies in a number of European jurisdictions, such as the legal framework governing restructuring, and information and consultation on corporate transactions. We periodically produce briefings with our European best friend firms, and have recently produced joint briefings with Hengeler Mueller in Germany and Bredin Prat in France. All of these are available free of charge to clients. They were exceptional and very professional. They came in and made things happen in the most painless way. Chambers UK, 2014 / Employment 7
