Morgan Russell Solicitors

Employment

Morgan Russell is recognised for offering practical, expert advice to both employers and to senior employees.

This area of law frequently changes and getting the right advice at the right time is vital.

We provide sound employment law advice in a commercial context, guiding clients through the employment law aspects of commercial transactions and disputes in tribunals and the civil courts.

It is against a background of constantly changing employment laws and regulations that the proactive approach of Morgan Russell is of great benefit.

We work closely with accountants and tax advisers where required. This enables us to not only advise clients on the alternatives available for a particular situation, but to evaluate the cost to them as an employer and the net benefits to the employees, enabling the full picture to be appreciated before a final decision is made.

We have strong relationships with employment law firms across Europe and worldwide to assist where international employment issues arise.
