Managing the commercial pressures of running a business and getting the people part right can be a delicate balance. Employers are confronted daily with a range of human resource issues. For those with cross-border operations, these issues can be even more complex.
Our Employment team strives to become an efficient extension of our clients’ businesses, providing strategic, timely and commercial advice.
We help senior teams and HR professionals at every stage of the employment lifecycle, whether it’s immediate operational support as individual problems arise, strategic advice on organisational development or implementing preventative measures and solutions.
We also work closely with clients on workforce and performance issues, such as HR audits, in-house training and executive coaching programmes on all aspects of employment law, HR practices and effective management and leadership techniques.
We pride ourselves on our knowledge of our clients’ business, culture and commercial goals to deliver the best possible outcome.
Working with FTSE-listed companies, SMEs, public bodies and not-for-profit organisations, our clients rely on our technical expertise and pragmatic, straight-talking advice that offers our opinion and not just options. We also advise individuals on executive service agreements and settlement agreements.
We cover all aspects of employment law and people management:
“With Acuity Law they always help me do the right thing and always help me minimise the risk to the company. Over the past 12 months we have achieved significant change for the business with no negative repercussions.”
“The team has the mix of professional expertise, reliability, availability and outcome that means I go back to them repeatedly. They are completely service minded which makes being a client an armchair of an experience, but at no loss to the clarity or the honesty of their advice.”
“When I work with the Acuity Employment team it feels like I am working with any other section of my in-house legal team. They integrate seamlessly, orient to the issue and present solutions on behalf of the organisation, rather than just a lawyer advising a client.”
“They have a good understanding of our business and the challenges we face within the industry. I really appreciate the pragmatism that Acuity offers us as a business.”
“The service is always well communicated and a time frame clearly laid out. They go the extra mile to make sure we are well looked after.”
“I have always found them to be very up to date with employment and legislation changes and they give us practical advice on implementation.”
“The team is very knowledgeable and responsive.”
“It provides a very high quality and personable service.”
“I fundamentally trust the team is because they are moulded in the image of their exceptional leader. Claire has that magical combination of a law library in her head, availability that suggests she has more hours in the day than other people, and a success rate to be envied.”
