The London office of McGuireWoods seeks an Associate with 3-4 years of experience for the Labor & Employment Department. Our attorneys work with employers to stay ahead of the curve on global workplace risk, partnering with them to manage issues before they arise. We advise and assist on pan-European issues, including contract and policy reviews, collective labor relations, drafting and enforcement of post-termination restrictions on mobile and foreign employees, cross-border business transfers and multijurisdictional re-organisations.
The ideal candidate should have significant experience, at the appropriate level, in the following areas: transactional experience (employment aspects of mergers and acquisitions, TUPE), outsourcing of services, appointment and severance of senior executives, downsizing and dismissals, discrimination and equal opportunities, employment litigation, mediation and dispute resolution, restraint of trade and trade secrets and new and proposed employment legislation.
Data protection knowledge and experience would also be an advantage.
