Ogletree Deakins—Employers and Lawyers, Working Together®

How We Can Help

We help employers achieve their business objectives by providing them with practical solutions to labour and employment law issues.

We are unique as a specialist labour and employment law firm with global reach. With more than 900 lawyers in 54 offices in the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Mexico, and the United States, we have the resources and the scope of coverage to assist employers with their labour and employment law needs wherever they are in the world.

We retain our focus on providing practical, commercial advice and personal service that is also cost-effective. We offer the personalised service of a boutique firm and work with employers as a partner to achieve their goals in an efficient manner.


We provide a comprehensive, end-to-end U.K. employment law service dealing with every aspect of the employment relationship from recruitment to termination and beyond, including:


Few firms operating in the U.K. have true expertise in managing employment issues outside the U.K. or on a global basis. We can manage employment matters emerging anywhere in the world including cross-border employment projects for companies that are present in or are expanding across several jurisdictions.

We deliver our services through Ogletree Deakins’ lawyers, referring where necessary to trusted affiliated lawyers in over 100 jurisdictions around the world. We actively manage clients’ projects providing them with a single point of contact so that our clients receive the advice and guidance they require in a format that best suits their needs.

Examples of our recent international work include:


We provide business immigration advice for companies placing employees into the U.K. and other jurisdictions worldwide.

Our approach

In the London office of Ogletree Deakins, we provide an attentive, client-focused service to our U.K. and international clients.

We strive to make our advice understandable, relevant, and focused on the action that our clients need to take to enforce or protect their legal rights, rather than write a weighty legal tome which does not help clients decide the appropriate course of action.

If you would like to know more about how we can help you or you want to speak to us about a specific matter, please contact Simon McMenemy at or call +44 (0)20 7822 7620.
