Employment & Immigration

Employment Law and UK Immigration Advice for the Aerospace and Defence Sector

We recognise that our clients' employees are an important resource, particularly as many employees in the aerospace and defence sector are highly trained with significant engineering, manufacturing and other skills.

As a result, the aerospace and defence sector gives rise to specific employment, immigration and human resources issues.  Whether a business in the sector is large or small, it will deal with and need to respond to employment law issues on a daily basis.

Employment Law and UK Immigration Specialists

We have experience of advising clients in the aerospace and defence sector on the employment law, HR and immigration issues that they regularly face - whether that be day to day management issues, or with long term strategic projects. The lawyers in our Employment law team advise clients at each stage of the supply chain, whether that be in respect to how our clients engage and work with independent contractors, how they manage senior or junior employees, and how they ensure business growth through acquisitions. We frequently advise on the employment implications of TUPE transfers and the outsourcing arrangements that our clients are involved in.

Confidential Information and Intellectual Property Rights

We understand that a key issue for employers in this sector is the protection of confidential information and intellectual property rights and can provide advice on the necessary contents of consultancy or service agreements to ensure that this information is protected.  We can also provide advice in relation to enforcing post-termination restrictions to ensure our clients can protect their key personnel from competitors.

Our team has significant experience of employment tribunal litigation and can advise employers at each stage of the litigation process.

Added Value

Our lawyers understand that employers in this globalised sector need to find the right person for the right role - whether that person is based in the UK or otherwise.  We can provide aerospace and defence clients with expert immigration advice in order to ensure that they can meet their employee needs and obligations towards the Home Office as may be required.
