Re-organisations & redundancy
Businesses are constantly changing and adapting their structures and systems to ensure that they remain able to operate in an increasingly competitive world.

Our employment team provides the advice and assistance needed to ensure that your decision to reorganise and/or restructure your business proceeds as smoothly as possible.

The team has particular experience in assisting businesses and organisations in handling compulsory redundancies and managing redundancy programmes in order to reduce exposure to potential tribunal claims.
