As a global network covering the key economic areas of the world, Globalaw firms are ideally placed to deal with issues arising from an increasingly multi-national and transient work force.
Companies employing senior executives, employed in a number of countries, require assistance with global contracts of employment, to ensure that they operate as intended.
Structuring renumeration packages effectively is important. Employee benefits, share options, pension rights and tax treatments need to be understood. Local laws may impact a contract and it is fundamental to know how. Enforceability of restrictive covenants, protection of confidential information and assignment of intellectual property rights created are all fundamental issues.
Getting key employees where clients need them can be another challenge. We have all read about the threat to US business from the strict quota on visas for workers. Being able to employ the right people in the right place or having an alternative strategy in place is a key human resource issue.
The lawyers of Globalaw involved in this issue understand these issues and together with their corporate lawyers are able to offer the full scope of services set out above.
