Our Employment Practice is cross-disciplinary in nature and our team encompasses lawyers well-versed in corporate practice as well as disputes work. We draw on the best of both worlds in providing practical solutions for our clients in all aspects of employment law.
We implement staff procedures and manuals, manage retrenchment exercise, represent our clients in court and assist in investigations involving employee misconduct. We regularly advise on implications arising from the relocation of employees and termination of employment for both employers and employees. We also work with clients on employment issues in connection with carve-out and bolt-on transactions.
Our commitment to exceptional client service includes our membership in the Employment Law Alliance ("ELA"), the world's largest alliance of employment and labour law experts. Appointed as the sole Singapore law firm member, the ELA provides us access to practitioners of the highest calibre around the world. This gives us the unparalleled ability to provide seamless, high-quality and cost-effective representation to clients' employment law needs.
We collaborated with Randstad Singapore on authoring the inaugural Randstad Singapore Workpocket 2015/16, an essential HR guide designed to provide practical advice for HR managers and business owners to manage complex talent challenges.
We also have an active Immigration Practice where we regularly advise clients on Singapore immigration laws relating to citizenship, permanent residency and visit passes.
We are proud of the recognition achieved by our practice, having been attributed as being a "quick, detailed, commercially-minded practice".
