Employment and Partnership

At Forsters, our employment and partnership practice is full-service. We advise employers, partnerships and individuals across multiple sectors, in relation to contentious and non-contentious matters.

We are trusted advisors to employers in managing and resolving workplace challenges. Our diverse experience ranges from large-scale reorganisations and urgent litigation in the High Court and Tribunals, through to dealing with day-to-day issues, contracts and policies. We advise senior individuals on all areas of their employee / employer relationship, from joining through to exit. Because we work with employers, partnerships and individuals, we sit on all sides of the table. We have a wealth of expertise and experience, which means we bring a rounded, balanced perspective and advice that is both holistic and strategic.

The world of employment law is being impacted by powerful forces such as reputational management, workplace well-being, ESG and artificial intelligence. It is becoming increasingly complex to navigate. Whatever your challenge, we bring together the right experience, skills and approach, to help you address it. What makes us different is how we work with our clients. We listen carefully, start with the desired outcome and work our way back. We are client-driven, empathetic and respectful. We are resolutions-focused, robust yet reasonable, measured yet sensible. We are always by your side throughout what is often a challenging and emotionally testing process, going that extra mile to make a difference.

Together, our technical expertise, deep experience, unique approach and proven track record mean we can help you navigate whatever the increasingly complex world of employment and partnership law presents you with.
