Legal advice for City employers

Having a large base in the heart of the City of London, it is no surprise that Royds Withy King acts for a number of organisations who are significant City employers.

Experienced support for City employers

We act for a number of City employers. These companies – some small, some large – some UK owned, some foreign owned – are within a range of business sectors, although there is a predominance in the finance sectors.

They look to Royds Withy King for help in a number of areas:

Employment law

The Royds Withy King Employment & HR team is highly regarded and has a number of experienced and commercial lawyers who are used to supporting the Boards, in-house legal teams and human resources experts in global banks and financial institutions, high street retailers, national charities, international airlines and fast growing technology companies in a variety of strategic and operational employment matters. They advise on both preventative and contractual issues as well as contentious matters and have a strong track record at Employment Tribunals.

International support

City employers often have staff from many different jurisdictions and have to send their people out to locations across the world. Whether it is advice on the employment issues affecting those coming from or going to other territories or more urgent advice when a problem arises, our employment team locates the relevant expertise through our Interleges network.

Legal services for staff

For several major employers, Royds Withy King provides special rates on our usual legal fees for their staff through their employer’s web site. Services include: moving home, personal tax and estate planning, will writing, divorce and family matters and personal injury. As well as knowing that their staff will receive top quality legal advice – at a preferential rate – employers also know that time away from the office will be minimised as Royds Withy King is conveniently located just a few minutes from Blackfriars and St Paul’s tube stations.

Legal education and surgeries for staff

Where there is interest, our lawyers specialising in topics such as efficient personal tax planning, off shore investments, retirement planning, the impact of new Government budgets and the use of pre and post nuptial agreements will provide free seminars and confidential surgeries to staff in their offices at times that will not interfere with business operations.
