‘Advising Effectively on the Employment Aspects in a Corporate Transaction – A Practical Guide for Junior Lawyers’ by Jackie Sheldon & Kate Shepherd
The practice of employment law in a private company acquisition cannot be conducted in a vacuum – it requires not only an understanding of employment law but also particular elements of company law.
Jackie and Kate have both been delivering training in relation to the corporate and employment issues in private company acquisitions for many years. They noted that there was no text available analysing the key issues specifically aimed at addressing the needs of the employment team – appreciating that to advise effectively on the employment aspects of the transaction, an understanding of both the corporate and employment aspects was vital.
Jackie has spent a number of years working with both undergraduates studying company law, corporate trainees and junior corporate assistants and has aimed to cover the historic questions asked by those new to corporate transactions together with clarifying areas of common confusion in a clear, straightforward manner.
Kate qualified as a solicitor and now trains lawyers, HR professionals and managers, as well as advising a diverse set of employers from small and medium sized enterprises to charities, PLCs and international companies.
The text includes practical tips and points to note throughout, making it extremely useful to a new practitioner to the area.
