This includes creating and reviewing employment contracts and policies, advising businesses dealing with disciplinary issues or grievances, advising businesses when they need to make redundancies and advising on the enforcement of post-termination restrictions in employment contracts.

We advise on employee incentive schemes including share option plans and long term incentive plans.
