Employment & Immigration

Employment issues are often sensitive, complex and unique to a given situation.  This means that more than ever it's important for employers, directors and senior executives to be equipped to overcome any potential pitfalls and understand the implications of their actions.

From recruitment and retention of key people, resolving disputes and potentially litigious issues, or driving change through training and workshops, employment matters are at the core of every business.

At Collas Crill we understand that the effective and efficient management of employment matters is not only an important risk management tool, but can add value to your business in the long term. We also understand that today's employment environment is more litigious than ever and not all issues can be mitigated or resolved. The stakes are often the highest in these cases, which is why our approach is to resolve conflicts in the most practical and sensitive manner – and always with the client's needs at the forefront.

Whether our clients are businesses looking for strategic employment advice or directors and key executives seeking advice on more individual issues, we have significant experience in all forms of contentious and non-contentious/advisory employment work.

We have a strong team of lawyers supported by a strong litigation practice working alongside our trusts, funds and corporate practices to support employment issues arising from regulatory investigations, trust company mergers and corporate activity.
