Employees are often the most vital asset involved in any business acquisition or contract change. Any slip-ups in relation to handling the employee aspect of the deal can result in extremely complex and expensive litigation. This can have a massive impact on the future profitability of the business. Our employment team has a great deal of valuable experience and works alongside our busy corporate team to advice employers about the people aspects of deals. We know what the risks and issues are and can help employers manage a particular deal to a successful outcome.
We can support your business, drafting the warranties and indemnities in a sale agreement, supporting you on the information and consultation issues with employees, preparing or reviewing the employee liability information and advising on the practicalities of harmonising terms and conditions or restructuring following any business transfers.
