Employment & Pensions

Singapore

We provide non-contentious and contentious employment advice, both for multi-jurisdictional organisations and senior-level employees ranging from data breach, restraint of trade, non-compete, breach of confidentiality to advice on non-tax aspects of employee incentive schemes and recruitment agencies within Asia Pacific.

When working as a team, we provide a seamless service and often coordinate employment advice for our multinational clients across Asia Pacific, Europe and beyond, meaning they don't have to juggle multiple advisers across numerous jurisdictions.

Our Singapore team, working with our associated firm Holborn Law, advise on a range of issues, including: 

  • Regulatory issues
  • Employee incentive schemes
  • Confidentiality obligations
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Business reorganisations
  • Outsourcing
  • Data breach Management
  • Employment documentation
  • Workplace disputes
