Restructuring and redundancies are fast becoming commonplace in today’s increasingly competitive global market. This means that at some point your business, regardless of its size, is likely to go through the process of restructuring in response to growth or streamlining.

That process often involves making the commercial decision to let staff go. Aside from the obvious, human-level difficulties involved in doing this, managing a redundancy process can be a legal minefield. If handled incorrectly it can lead to costly and damaging Employment Tribunal claims.

If you’re facing this situation, we highly recommend you speak to one of our lawyers about the best way to proceed. The Bolt Burdon Employment team have considerable experience in this area and have worked on cases that range from the dismissal of just one member of staff right up to large scale redundancies that involved hundreds of employees.

Losing valuable employees is difficult enough, without having to worry about them taking your clients with them.

As the saying goes ‘prevention is better than cure’ so it’s advisable that you draft post-termination restrictive covenants sooner rather than later. We can deliver these documents, tailored to your specific business needs, quickly and without fuss.

If the situation occurs where someone has acted in breach of those covenants, we can also work with you to mitigate the damage and recover any loss to your business.

Why Bolt Burdon, and not another law firm?

What marks us out from the crowd is that we always keep our eye on the commercial objective, whether that be an expertly negotiated settlement or injunctive relief.
